Slow roast pork, roast potatoes parsnips and carrots, steamed broccoli, peas and mashed swede n' carrot with a bit of stilton in it. Apple sauce. Chocolate and banana cake for pudding. With local organic super-thick double cream.
Usual boring weekday fodder.

Umm Venison steaks I think......and baked spuds, kale, carrots and leeks.

Or maybe not...I am bust writing coursework for my PTTLS course and it may end up being whatever CM decided to make...which will probably be a similar meal ( but better cooked...he is a better cook than me in most things...!)

Was up until 3AM making sausage so we are damn well having sausage for lunch. The fennel ones are my favourite I think.
Not sure what is for supper as brain still only vaguely in gear. Either rainbow trout or perhaps moussaka if i can be bothered to prep the aubergines this afternoon.

Made stew, dumplings and mash last night. So lots of veggie chopping - am giving myself the easy option tonight, Spag Bol, with home made tom and veg sauce out of the freezer - ready in twenty minutes and not much to do!

Two menus most nights. If I ask what;s for supper tonight the usual answers are either "I don't Know" or "Food". When Penny tells me it's going to be "I Don't Know" again tonight I wonder about who this mysterious cook is that I never get to see.

Not quite as strange as this might sound for those who need to shop according to planned menus. Because when younger, before we were together, Penny went through periods of not what to eat she feels uncomfortable without a well stocked larder full of staples that could keep us going quite a while. And what we shop for with only very few exceptions is governed by "what's on special this week" (and if it's stuff that keeps, get enough to carry till next time on sale). If we couldn't go out to shop for a couple of weeks we wouldn't be going hungry.

So she always has available a good supply of potential ingredients that could cover a wide range meal types and can decide at the last minute "oh, tonight it'll be a Chinese stir fry on rice" or "oh, it'll be burritos", or "how about fish chowder", etc. It's only when it'd be a meal that would take hours in preparation that she has to decide early.

Couldn't be bothered with aubergines in the end, so made cottage pie. Minced up the end of a roasting joint, and simmered it in some venison stock. Swede, parsnip, carrot, turnip, celery and three cheese and spring onion mash on top with parmesan crust. Should be ready just about when The Graefin and the kinder get back form playing at Safari Tots.

Might quickly knock together a fruit salad for pudding.

CM is cooking and I have NO idea what we are having..I got in from running Eco club 2 hours after CM and CG left it, because I had a planning meeting with lovely co -leader...so we are about to eat and I have been up here writing an essay on "Barriers to learning in the Adult returner..."

It smells good, though!

Am going to meet up with an old chum today, so supper must be quick tonight. DD2 isn't here so just me and DH. Left over bolognese sauce from last night might well be pepped up with some chilli and kidney beans and served on rice. Nice and quick, but tasty too.
