Pizza again, but this time instead of tomato base I used toast toppers (they are 2 for £1 in the Pound Shop) extra mushrooms, peppers sweetcorn meat a sliced tomato & cheese.

very nice, but I prefer the tomato base.

They are available in most supers still, but a bit pricey, £1 for 2 in the pound shop is good though, & they still make a quick tea.

Sea bass topped with walnut pesto, grated carrot and courgette, en papillotte, and minty spiced couscous. Cheap and cheerful.

The last of the home raised quail packets thawed out and fried with gravy made from the pan juices. Served with a casserole made from home grown sweet onions and heritage lemon squash and smashed spuds.

It was fab Very Happy but I was going to bake the first of the Black Futsu squash to go with the above but it wasnt ready! Never having grown a winter squash its proving hard to judge ripeness Rolling Eyes

Slow cooked broad bean and smoked sausage casserole (I think there's an Italian name for it) and new potatoes. Although you simmer it on a very low heat it cooked quicker than I expected and it had to sit for a while until I cooked the potatoes!

Yesterday I made



2 cottage pies



2 beef casserole



2 pork casserole



1 sausage casserole



Result a lot of instant meals in the freezer which just need veg or potatos/rice/pasta, which also means time for me to do some "ME" things.Very Happy

C-H Jnr and I have been out on our bikes on the redways of Milton Keynes today, so it was a matter of using what was to hand when we got home - potato cakes with the potatoes I dug yesterday, and mediterranean style roasted veg - peppers, courgette, red florence onion, tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and tossed with basil and garlic.

Made a big pot of pea & ham/bacon soup. Was very tasty. Makes a change to make a specific soup as it is usually just throw in any leftovers & whatever else I can find.
