What are you eating today? (v4)

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Hello all.

I make Nigella's ginger beer bread / cake and my 'Northern' friends describe it as Parkin :chops:

Well I had a week of microwave food - mainly fish last week. OH came back on Friday and for the first day in 2 months we were on our own for dinner. We had a Chinese takeaway. More and more places are opening up which is so exciting. Yesterday lunch was West Indian chicken curry. The boss arrived back in the evening (to his own house - he has been incredibly generous allowing us to stay!) and I cooked a Thai chicken curry. Met some friends at the beach for a barbecue today and had a sausage sandwich and prosecco :oops: If you look out to sea you can pretend nothing has happened! I am making the sausage and pepper one pot I have mentioned on here before. Too many sausages but hey ho.

I may have said in my previous post so apologies but we are hoping to move home very soon. The place has been boarded up but they have installed a door in the boarding so we will be able to get in and out. It will be much tougher conditions than here but I am not sure I can live in a commune anymore.....

Oh gosh Rocky, so exciting moving home! Hope it happens soon and conditions aren't so tough. You're doing amazing.

Today, I had a piece of toast this morning and a Costa en route to a meeting at 10. The meeting only finished at 4 ish and I didn't have anything to eat or drink whilst there. So on the way home, I stopped off and got a masala dosa, a samosa chaat and pav bhaji for myself and OH to share. Very greedy really but it did for lunch and tea.

OH did bring me a piece of nutella toast later on. Bit of a strange eating day i guess!

Rocky, I take my hat off to you with how you are coping in the worst of circumstances. You really are doing amazing. I hope the house move happens sooner rather than later x.
Hmm food wise.... Saturday supper was Kofta curry and rice that i'd made before the Bonfire and Fireworks.

Yesterday was a bacon and mushroom sandwich then picked at fruit through the afternoon before Roast Garlic, Lemon Thyme and Oregano Chicken with roasties, stuffing, Brocoli and carrots. Oh and Apple Crumble with custard for pudding. All this prepared with 'help' from DD who loves being in the kitchen....with some interesting results :lol: . I don't make a roast very often (just not my favourite meal) but really enjoyed it.

For supper I'm going to use the rest of the pork to make meat balls which I'll do with a HM sweet and sour sauce and serve on a bed of noodles and vegetablesd. Ive still got a bit of Poirat left

Yesterday I had black cherry cake while out and about, with a coffee, rosemary bread and butter followed by warm tiny mini pancakes with maple syrup and cream. Balanced, NOT.
dinner was a hot cheese dip thing with more rosemary bread.

No vegetables yesterday! :o

today: I had a Quorn cold bacon sandwich with yet more rosemary bread, with honey mustard and mayo. It was really rather nice. Nicer than I expected.
loads of white chocolate
I need to have a healthy dinner. Diet starts tomorrow - or tonight.

This evening we had crispy chicken (Asda breaded chicken fillets), and fried rice, rice with an egg chucked in an a packet of black bean sauce that went out of date a month ago!
I served it in the Chinese cartons you get in America to make it seem a bit better.

We met friends for a long walk yesterday and had coffees and cake in a deli afterwards. Dinner was little bits...a small bowl of veg soup, some roasted chestnuts and some stilton.

My mum was round for lunch today and we had some creamy pasta with ham, mushrooms and peas.

Dinner will be lamb keema with paneer and peas, garlic flat bread, tomato and red onion salad, and a small portion of Rogan josh sauce from the freezer to drizzle over the minced lamb.

I made a horrible dinner last night. It was one of the Helmsley sisters recipe for a version of macaroni cheese. The sauce was made using cooked and then blitzed grated carrots and red split lentils, with garlic and cottage cheese added. It also had dijon mustard, vinegar and smoked paprika in there. Parmesan grated on top of the macaroni bake before being grilled. DD loved it, OH ate it anyway, but I could only stomach a small portion. The texture was awful and the taste wasn't great.

Easy cheats dinner tonight as we've got people here laying a wooden floor, so shop bought garlic chicken kievs with homemade wedges and beans and/or peas.

I'm hoping to make a beef bourguinon today if poss which will be for tomorrow evening.

We both loved it!
I'd never think to serve that usually.
Last night we had cal zone, Asda ready rolled pizza dough with passata, ham and cheese.
Tonight is chicken and mushrooms in gravy with smash.

Last night we had spaghetti with sausage meatballs in a tomato, mascarpone and spinach sauce.

We're finally having the bourguinon tonight if I can make a start on it this afternoon. Hopefully with a mini seafood platter as a starter with a glass of champagne. Our extension is finally complete with all flooring laid and we are celebrating! No dessert (doubt we'll have room) but if we want anything there is some blacksticks blue and the chocolates jar is full of Guylian still from Halloween, so that will do.

Continuing with my posting everyday thing!
Tonight is a repeat of last night's chicken/mushroom casserole, this time with tinned carrots.
I have no idea why I bought them.
Using up my cupboard/freezer stock is erm interesting :D
I've no DD until Sunday, she went to her friend's for the weekend last night which means I'm free to watch Strictly and eat a giant bowl of crisps tomorrow evening without comment.

One of those good foodie days courtesy of M&S. I went in to get their dine in for £10 deal and a lovely lady was running a festive sampling stall. Gorge chocolate truffles and felt very civilised doing my shopping with a glass of prosecco in one hand.

Dinner will be chicken in red wine sauce with a bacon crumb, small cubes of rosemary roasted potatoes and mixed veg. Have started on the rose already and is very nice too

Yesterday toast and marmalade
Lunch Covent Garden leek and potato soup with Ryvita and soft cheese
Official snack a yogurt and an apple
Unofficial snack too much Gujerat mix :oops:
Dinner brown rice, chilli con carne, tomato, red onion, avocado, salad leave
Some cheese

The avo was a frozen half from Iceland, it was OK for mashing without adding lime juice, but coated in so much citric and ascorbic acid to stop discoloration that cutting a slice off the end w and nibbling it wasn't very nice. Might try freezing my own half in future

Today toast again, not sure what else

I love oatmeal fried herring especially with roe Suffs.

Breakfast was a Pastis and tapenade on toast after the 11/11 ceremony :oops: :oops:

Luch was bacon and egg followed by coffee and a square of chilli chocolate

Supper is to be quenelle de brochet with sauce Nantua (Thank you M Malavard) I have just spotted a cake box from the patisserie in the fridge. This is clearly not a healthy eating day. Yummy maybe but not exactly balanced :lol: :lol:

Yesterday lunch was golden beetroot fritters with goats cheese, followed by apple strudel which seemed to have nuts in it , with chantilly(?) with Tonka beans, and apple and cinnamon sorbet. Yum.

Since then, two slices of bread and butter and a toasted tea cake :o at my mother’s. Poor food my fault though. Dinner should be a bit better.

Tonka beans, used as an alternative to vanilla but different flavour
Banned in some countries as the coumarin content is toxic (though I wouldn't worry about the amount in a dessert)

It was delicious although can’t say that was down to the tonka beans. It’s an ingredient they are fond of.

My diet didn’t get any better. Since last reported, half a trashy little cheese pie, two pieces of brown bread and butter, two kitkats and two biscuits!!! :o

I have some Hartington Stilton and some Henderson’s Relish flavoured cheese (I could not resist) in my bag though, which should be at a decent temperature to eat.

Nearly home. Waiting for train number three.

A whole week has gone by...

Not likely to remember lunches but teas, well, here goes...
Monday must've been an aldi sourdough pizza - semi dried tomatoes and mozzarella - with salad.
Tuesday, LMc burgers topped with halloumi and salad.
Wednesday was salmon topped with cream cheese and breadcrumbs, served with cubed roasted potatoes and sauteed mix of broccoli, pine nuts, red onion and cherry tomatoes.
Thursday was a delicious takeaway curry.
Friday was a one pan fry up type thing of rump steak, halloumi, red onion, peppers and rice/quinoa mix with some paprika, cumin and chilli type flavours.

Yesterday, I had more of the mix (minus the rice) in a wrap for breakfast.
Lunch was a ham and cheese sandwich after I'd been shopping.
We went out for tea to a new burger place. I had buttermilk fried chicken topped with mozzarella and lemon pepper aioli. It was delicious.

Today, I had a piece of toast before spinning.
A frying pan job of mushrooms, ham, cherry tomatoes, a scrambled egg and cheese inside a wrap when I got home.
Tea has been a quick veggie/bean chilli with rice, salsa and Greek yoghurt in the absence of soured cream.

On Saturday
Breakfast ... sugar free Alpen
Lunch ... smoked sprats and green salad
Supper ... Macaroni cheese

Sunday
Breakfast was late and consisted of lots of coffee after our disturbed night
Lunch ... cod and parsley fishcakes
Supper ... a home-made 'Cornish-style' steak and onion pasty and leftover macaroni cheese

I didn't have the energy to cook yesterday after the nocturnal goings on so the casserole intended for Sunday will be made today for tonight's supper. We ate whatever was in the fridge :rolleyes:

Breakfast , for him, was porridge and maple syrup.

Lunch was eggs Benedict followed by a clementine and 2 fresh dates. They looked so lovely on the plate, the green leaves on the clementines and the shiny dates.

Supper, at Mr R's request is mince and dumplings with carrots and Brussels sprouts. I think Savoie pears afterwards.

Or a laksa or tom yum soup. Kind of fresher like a salad but with the warming qualities that a salad fails to offer

We had friends round for an impromptu Sunday roast after a walk yesterday and a pub pit stop. We had roast pork with stuffing etc and apple tart afterwards.

Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs this morning.

Dinner is duck breasts, garlic potatoes, cavolo nero, pancetta, port, thyme and red currant. It's smelling good and I'm starving.

banana
quite a few mixed nuts and raisins
Branflakes with sultanas
a salt and vinegar rice cake
and some proper food: a not very imaginative, but quite tasty chickpea, tomato, onion and spinach thing with cumin, hot smoked paprika, s-d tomato paste and garlic. I might have seconds with feta, instead of today's parmesan, on top tomorrow.

Re: What are you eating today? (v4)

Last night I made a couple of four seasons pizzas to suit all requests. My preference was the garlic spinach, mushroom, pine nut and pecorino quarters. OH had njuda, basil and olives and DD nabbed lots of the margarita and parma ham.

I'm currently enjoying a very early morning 'Kind' chocolate, nut and sea salt snack bar at work as they've sent us loads as we're doing some research for them. It's reminding me of a particularly nice peanut brittle.

Tonight I think I'm going to do something with Thai flavours and chicken. That's as far as I've got! We've got a lime, chillies, coconut milk, kaffir lime leaves etc so perhaps a Thai green curry with rice or a spicy soup
