What are we all having for dinner?

You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

It was going to be game soup - but it wasn't ready in time so we've had carbonara instead

It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

We had a chicken and a ham over xmas and used them up yesterday in a chicken and ham pie made with a bit of leftover pastry I had put in the freezer, some leftover chicken gravy, a slosh of wine left in the bottle and about a tablespoon of cream left over from the trifle. And it was the nicest pie I've made for ages!
Today - pizza, as my son had a friend round and its the only thing she eats!

Think we'll have duck egg tortilla (omelette) cos I have lots of salady stuff left from our Boxing Day cold turkey meal. Get a bit sick of it but don't like throwing away duck eggs! Anyway OH always cooks the omelette so there is method in my madness. *evil grin smiley*

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Trying to think of a way to cook mussels that we will like! There are loads on the shore and we weren't keen when we first tried them so I am thinking ofa way to disguise them lol!

The veggie crumble sounds yummy but I think I'd go for the sausage casserole in this weather....brrrrrrr!
My favorite way to cook mussels is to cook them in coconut milk mixed with red thai curry paste, and top with garlic and spring onion, and serve with homemade chips :iconbiggrin:

We had home made chicken goujons with potato wedges, salad, peas and corn. Yummy - I've never made goujons before so I'll be doing it again! :cheers: :iconbiggrin:

Tonight is Kofta with curry and rice. I spent a bit of time cooking ahead yesterday so we also have a goulash and a stew for later in the week.
