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.

Good idea! We can mix 'em with some nice white fish if we can catch some! Thanks Silver x

We had fish pie tonight - just could not face any more meat, we seem to have eaten more meat than usual over Christmas. I impressed myself by cooking the potatoes in a pan with a steamer basket containing the veg and the fish on top of that (I used to bake the fish in the oven). Wonder if I could have made the white sauce in a double boiler on top of the steamer....darn it, never thought of that!

Turkey stew tonight - froze the carcass. It's amazing how many meals you can get out of one 4Kg turkey

We were supposed to have beef stew, but my daughter was a bit under the weather and wanted tomato soup. She wanted the soup that comes in a tin with the name everyone knows, but I made it instead - and she said it was exactly the same! :cheers:

Did the baked leek risotto which Shirley posted on here somewhere in a leek thread I think. However be warned it takes about 2 1/4 hours from start to finish!!! Nice though!

We don't eat tinned soup but we ALWAYS have a tin of the famous soup just in case we are ill. In fact we usually have a regular sized tin and a large one in case we both come down with something! My OH hates tall omato soup except this one.....

Dinner here tonight is a casserole made with quorn, onions, broccoli, cauliflower and sweetcorn. Hope it's nice.

We NEVER have tinned soup but what did I send hubby out for last week when I had flu :lol: :lol: I blame my mother, I think it's what she fed us when were poorly as children.
It's really strange isn't it! :dontknow: My granda swore by it when he was ill!

Anyway - we had the beef stew tonight for tea. I'm really rather glad it wasn't eaten last night as I've spent the day at the hospital with my Dad :( so it was easy to come in, bung some potatos on to boil and heat up the stew :cheers:

I had a piece of toast and I'm sooo hungry now, I might go and make cous cous...

Tomorrow might be sausage and bean casserole.

Finest Range ravioli (posh cheese and rocket) we picked up on the reduced shelf of the local SuperHellHole for 10p (reduced from £2.50) on Tuesday and chucked in the freezer.
Tomorrow is Arbroath Smokies with bubble and squeak - yum! I love Friday 'fish day', and I'm not even Catholic. But the fish van came round today and I couldn't resist!
I took my dog to play frisbee. She was useless. I think I need a flatter dog.

Had tortillas wrapped around a bean & tomato filling. I felt wild & extravagant and fried off some chorizo with the onions & peppers :cheers:

There's just masses left.

We ALWAYS have 'fish friday',(1 lapsed catholic,1 ageing confused insurrectionist and 3 young would- be jeddais) dont know why.Needless to say,my lot cant do normal fish pie stuff,so it's usually a mixture of mussels and calamari ! (surprisingly cheaper than a lot of fish).

No catholics in my family but we used to have fish from the chippy on a Friday too, what is the religious meaning of this? :dontknow: I thought it was just an old tradition like a roast on Sunday and Monday being washing day!
