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.

I made celery soup yesterday because it was quite cool outside and we had enough for today. I made some fresh cheese scones this morning because we were out of bread.

Last evening I had a piece of roast veal to use up from Sunday. It was n't very flavouful when first cooked so I had to try and cheer it up a bit. I turned it into a spicy parmentier - shepherd's pie minus without the shepherd. It was a lot tasssstier thn the original!
We finished the exotic fruit salad afterwards.

Supper tonight is a wild mushroom risotto with rhubarb and strawberry jellies for pud.

Lack of bread was my reason for whipping up a batch of cheese scones for lunch today. Served with homemade watercress soup that I added peas and broccoli to as they were starting to wilt, and some freshly picked cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. (plant to plate in seconds) Kids all happy

When my children had grown up, I learned that they used to pray we'd run out of bread so they'd get cheese scones (filled with cheese and marmite) for lunch!

Breafast: Big bowl of fresh fruit salad
Lunch: bean salad with lots of veggies and tinned fish (couldn't finish it all).
Out with friends: a slice of Bara Broth
Supper: The remains of lunch with extra stir fried veg and egg. Plums.

I'm not sure I've ever had a cheese scone let alone made one - might remedy that! On Sunday when we got home I found a tub of HM a pesto in the freezer so we had that - OH with pasta and me with roasted veg. Minday was the spicy Thai red curry with stacks of veg. Last night OH was out so I roasted an aubergine and invented a spicy tomato sauce to have with it. We really can't decide on tonight. Annoyingly, having been determined that the holiday marked the end of responding at work in crisis mode I'm straight back into it :( which means I find it v hard to think sensibly about meals. Maybe an omlette and salad. Tomorrow is a year since the hurricane - I feel I ought to mark the occasion in a culinary way!

Breakfast was chocolate brioche and fresh fruit.

Lunch will be some smoked mackerel with salad and lemon dressing. Probably more fruit too.

Dinner will be something with chicken...possibly chicken in a cream, white wine, leek and tarragon sauce. With green beans and garlic and thyme hassleback potatoes on the side.

DD was messing around at bath time and so it cooked for 5-10 minutes longer than I would have liked! Still nice though.

Emma, you have got me craving dumplings now!

Breakfast was more of the naughty chocolate brioche with fruit. It's one of those tear and share things but it seems to be going on forever.

Lunch will be a boring cheese, ham and coleslaw sandwich with an apple and a packet of pom bears.

We've had lots of lovely stuff arrive in the Abel and Cole box this morning. I think dinner is going to be steak (I can't remember the cut but I think it's a bavette/flank or similar) - with chimichurri, corn on the cob, balsamic, sea salt and parsley tomatoes and some grilled portobello mushrooms with black garlic.

So much delicious sounding food! Thank you EM. I have to say I feel very 'something' today and keep thinking 'this time last year' nWe have had THE most exciting way to mark the occasion. Got home from work last night and all the windows and doors in our main living area had been put in - so we were boarded up for 364 days not a year :bounce:

Yesterday was roti Wednesday so that was lunch and particularly delicious it was too. Dinner was a bacon, mushroom and feta omlette with tiny whole baby roasted spuds (I bought them because they looked cute but dreadful for roasting - lovely and crisp in the oven but soggy as soon as they hit the plate) and a rocket and tomato salad.

We are joining some of the people we spent the storm with for dinner - preceded by drinks for more reminiscing! The restaurant is doing a special Irma menu so who knows what that will be. I hope it doesn't try to be too close to what it was like - for the first three days OH lived on half a small salami and I had a piece of pitta and a few spoons of peanut butter. Great way to lose weight :rolleyes:

What a good idea to have dinner with others who have endured the year. You have something new to celebrate too with the boards down!

Breakfast: Fresh fruit salad.
Lunch: Tomato and basil salad with other things added. Stewed apple and Swedish Glace.
Supper: Remainder of last night's stuffed courgette dish. Fresh pineapple.

Brilliant news Rocky! I hope the meal was good too.

MORE brioche and fruit this morning. I'm not buying it again, it's like the magic porridge pot :D

Lunch will be some leftover chimichurri, heirloom tomato salad, feta and i'll make some cous cous or bulghar to go with it all.

Dinner will be homemade fish and chips with lemon and tartare sauce. With some combination of leeks, peas and/or spinach on the side.

Good on you Rocks :tu: Don't know how I would cope.

Seafood risotto was perfectly cooked, followed by a burger in what was described as a green pepper sauce, I was thinking bell peppers but of course it was green peppercorn sauce with marinated courgettes and rosemary and olive oil potatoes. pud was hazel nut ice cream... Mmmmm

What an emotional time Rocky, must bring it all back. Congrats on the windows!

Thursday, I can't remember breakfast but I worked from h9me unbthe afternoon so had leftover veg and bolognese and lots of picking all afternoon :rolleyes:

Friday, I had a veggie sausage and ketchup pitta for breakfast I think.
Lunch was veggie sushi, carrots and hummus, crisps.
Tea was terrible, terrible dominos... I blame OH!

Today, I had fruit toast for breakfast.
I went into the office this afternoon and got a embarrassingly "substantial" lunch en route... a sticky rice and veg bowl and a veggie pasty and a pack of biscuits for us all to share :oops:
Then, unexpectedly, my boss (with whom I haven't been on the best of terms with recently) brought me a hot sandwich from home made by his wife. I daren't tell him I'd eaten! I did eat the sandwich later on like a pig and also because, y'know, gratitude ;) it was delicious! A slightly spiced omelette with potatoes and onions in some slightly toasted white bread. Amazing!
Tea has been rather piggish too... a nando's style fakeaway of peri peri chicken, halloumi, spicy rice, veg and spicy chips. Very nice but i can hardly move now!

I made a chilli yesterday which we had last night and I think it was the best chilli we've made in ages. It had a combination of diced chargrilled peppers, smoked and black garlic, chipotle chillies as well as some russian roulette chillies included in there which I think made it.

Granola this morning.

Lunch will probably be leftover chilli with some kind of carb.

Dinner will be venison fillets with smoked garlic mash, cavolo nero and a red wine and blackberry sauce.

That chilli sounds lovely OMCO.

Well we have had a bit of a 'this time last year...' Week. Emotional but good. I am still marveling at all the natural light we now have in the house!

Trying to think back. Friday night was ribeye steaks and a pancetta risotto and broccoli. In the day we took a boat out to support a fundraiser where people were swimming 10km :shock: Lunch of bbq fish, ribs and chicken was provided afterwards. For dinner OH had pasta and pesto and I had roasted veg. We met some friends for brunch on Sunday and I had fish tacos. Dinner was minute steaks with a spicy tomato sauce and brocolli.

OH flew to London on Monday for a meeting (h is back tomorrow - ridiculous to have had to go!). I had all the veg that needed to be used up with leftover spicy sauce and a sausage I found in the freezer. Last night I made a leek and potato pie from BBC Good Food - more of a pasty really. Had that with a variety of veg. Roti Wednesday today for lunch but I might actually save it and bring it home for dinner!

I took myself out for lunch today in the interests of research for an upcoming birthday lunch with colleagues next week (Old favourite, The Three Kings is still out of action, kitchen wise). I went to the Coin laundry on Exmouth Market. I had barely sat down when they offered me a coffee. I said no, I wanted to have lunch, and was looked at as if this was a non sequitur.
Someone eventually came over to take a food order, but offered me coffee again too. I was now guessing this must be an Australian place, at least insofar that other Australian eateries seem to offer one coffee before the meal.
The meal was first: baked eggs with courgette, Ogleshield cheese and chilli served with toasted sourdough.
Dessert was black cherry and lemon curd cheese cake. I would have capitulated on the coffee front at this point, but it was not offered, so I didn't bother.
I should not be eating again today... but I am craving sugar right now!

Last night was just carciofi with a tomato (home grown) fresh sage from the garden and not fresh thyme sauce with onion and garlic - eaten with a liberal amount of grated caciocavallo that I brought back from Puglia.

Nice sounding lunch Herbi.

Breakfast was special K. Lunch will be a smoked chicken salad plus a little tub of guacamole. OH made it and i've noticed he's included a couple of black olives in mine by mistake instead of just green. I'll be removing those little balls of Beelzebub! :twisted:

Dinner will be spaghetti carbonara - yippee!

Crumpets for breakfast.

Leftover carbonara for lunch.

We're meeting my mum & dad and OHs' mum and sister for a couple of early doors drinks this evening. It's a tiny village 'locals' pub along the lane from MIL and they put out a pretty decent selection of cheese board, fruit platters, salad, cured meats, pates, breads etc for people to help themselves to on a Friday. Unfortunately I can't eat a lot of it currently but I will eat some of the allowed cheese as well of plenty of bread and pickles! We'll probably have a snack when we get home if we need it.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Thanks OMCO :hug:

I did indeed bring my roti home on Wednesday and it was lovely - a particularly spicy one.i had a day of feeling like I was masquarading as a grown up as I have been appointed to a board (which will ultimately oversee $3 billion of projects :shock: ). Anyway that meeting was six hours long so it was decided to get some sandwiches mid way through but the person charged with ordering got the wrong end of the stick and ordered full blown lunch so had a lovely piece of fish in a lemon sauce with roasted tomatoes and some veg. Dinner was a work one. I hadn'tt ordered a starter so was given bits by the people around me so had a coconut prawn, some calamari and a mini crab cake. For main I had mahi and Caesar salad. Yesterday was so busy lunch got missed. In theory I finish work at one on Friday but that hasn't happened since Irma so quite late out and hadn't done any shopping so had a feta, chicken and pesto pizza from our lovely local restaurant. Out tonight for a friend's birthday to an Italian place so no idea what I'll have.

A slice of toast with choky spread and P nut butter, lunch was as per the mozzarella thread and supper was a take on Moqueca de Pixie (fish) and jasmine rice. The food at the hotel was basic and well cooked but we found it a bit on the bland side. It's always the case when cooking for different nationalities.

Lots of lovely food yesterday at a national trust place and then country pub lunch with friends. Dinner in an Italian restaurant with another two couples in the evening...I chose the fillet steak and wild mushroom tagliatelle for my main with a truffle cream sauce. It was so rich but the portion was smallish so it worked.

Today..

Boiled egg and soldiers for breakfast. A plum mid morning.

Veg soup and a warm buttered roll for lunch.

Dinner was roast pork belly with apples from the garden, roasted onions, potatoes, kale, leeks and cabbage, gravy.

OH is now overseeing bath time and I’ve just put some apple strudel pastries which we’ve made in the oven to have with cinnamon and caramel ice cream when they come downstairs.

Blimey, not updated for a full week! See what I can remember...

Sunday - roast pork loin whuch I rubbed with chilli flakes and fennel served with potatoes, loads of veg and gravy.
Monday - butternut squash, chickpea and spinach curry, I think. The leftovers of which I had for lunch The next day.
Tuesday - stir fried veg with something but I can't remember what...
Wednesday - my sister and I went to northcote for a "Special Evening with Lisa (Allen) and Moonira (Hinglotwala)". Lisa being the head chef and Moonira being one of the final few from 2018 Masterchef. Absolutely amazing... very authentic indian food with a fine dining twist. Highlights were the amazing capes and the medley of chicken first course (of 6). Oh, and the twist on aloo gobi. Pics on my insta for anyone who follows.
Thursday - boring in comparison! A veggie sausage, egg and cheese bagel.
Friday was an awful day as Leo had been up sick all night so I had no sleep then worked from home as he couldn't go to nursery obviously and it was my last day in the office before a week's leave so I had so much to do and handover. I have spent most of the weekend trying to catch up with an odd hour here and there in between packing and pre-holiday chores! Anyway, I felt so horrendous on Friday evening and OH had gone out so I had a bowl full of mushy peas, topped with quorn nuggets and loads of ketchup :oops:
Yesterday, I had a breakfast butty of some description... veggie sausage and egg perhaps.
Lunch was not really anything, just bits as I was so busy.
We had a grotty Chinese takeaway for tea.
Today, has been all over the place... a turkey sandwich for breakfast, as you do. Picked at sandwiches, crips, apple, biscuits, burger king(airport tradition) and sweets.
Eventually arrived at our hotel and made it in time for the end of the buffet restaurant so had the obligatory "bit of everything" before retiring to the room. Leo has been an angel the whole day despite being travel sick all over himself in the taxi on the way TO the airport, poor kid; a flight delay once we were boarded due to a sick passenger; a transfer delay once boarded on the coach due to a (different) sick passenger and only getting to the hotel 3 hours past his bed time. Fingers crossed he sleeps all night in new surroundings!

I have had 2/3 days of a 'carp' food … and suffering the consequences this morning! :( On Friday I bought sourdough bread and pigged out on that; on Saturday I ate out twice and each time settled for high carb and fat dishes with little or no fibre and yesterday I baked for friends and only ate the sausage rolls, cheese and veg flan and apple meringue pie - which was pretty much all I ate during the day. Oh my :o … without going into too much detail, my colostomy and stoma are revolting (in every sense of the word ! ) :td: :sprout: :rolleyes:

I have already described the lunch I had on Saturday on CB and would now like to forget it!
we had it with beetroot with chive and butter
Sat evening I fished some Picard prawns with various caotings out of the freezer and we happily nibbled on those with various dips. They really are rather good.

Sunday we had a slow roast shoulder of sisteron lamb cooked on rosemary branches with whole garlic cloves and baby potatoes at the end. we had it with beetroot with chives and butter and minted peas.
We had some pastel de nanta, also from Picard which i wanted to try. They were absolutely delicious
Supper time we had cheese and some muscat grapes.

Lunch today was avocado and bacon toast with a lovely pear afterwards.

Supper is to be Pan haggerty with the rest of the lamb and some broccoli puree. There is a bowl of sliced peche de vignes in white wine sittting in the fridge. They are a bit of a pain to skin but you have to as the skins are extremely furry.

Tomorrow I am going back on the health kick I started a few weeks ago. Since then I have had every dietary distraction under the sun.

Spent last night at DD's and we went out with friends to a Chinese restaurant where you could order what you liked on the menu for a set price. We had an awful lot of starter foods, the usual things but all very good. It would have been a good idea to stop there but we tried a couple of main dishes (small helpings to share) and then had the amazing deep fried ice cream :chops:.
Today we walked along the under cliff path in Brighton - about 4 miles - but then had chips and ice cream on the pier :oops:. None of has has wanted to eat anything more today - unsurprisingly.

Breakfast of fruit then egg, beans, tomato, bacon and cubed potatoes.
Unfortunately for me, this place does wonderful pizzas so I had a slice (olive) for lunch alongside a plate of chicken, veg and potatoes (followed by a square of cake) and then another slice at tea to accompany pasta, veg and tomato sauce. I need to reign it in!

Thanks Rocky. There were also vast piles of pots and pans destined for the dishwasher all over the kitchen surfaces, the Greatest Showman soundtrack blaring out and half of the dining table was covered in glitter, glue and other craft paraphernalia so it was actually quite chaotic! :shock: The strudel was delicious though - we had it again last night, this time with some double cream.

Lunch today will be a bowl of leek and potato soup with a cheddar and walnut roll.

Dinner will be something with pork chops. We have some double cream to use up too so we might make a mustard cream sauce or something. I'll let OH sort the sides as i'll be having my nails done while he cooks it!

Breakfasts are likely to be much of a muchness I imagine this week...
Yesterday's lunch was a massive mound of various salads with a bbq'd turkey breast steak. Plus cake, of course!
Tea last night was a selection of pastas and veg.
Cocktails and crisps on the balcony last night.

Today I had some piri piri chicken for lunch at a nice place which was unbelievably spicy and accompanied by a sulking 2 year old who was too hot and bothered to eat his lunch apart from when he was sat on the steps nearby (aka overtired) :rolleyes:
We went to a traditional bakery/coffee shop a little later and had drinks, pastel de nata and other such goodies.
Not sure on tea, see what's in the restaurants here. Must try and avoid the pizza :lol:

I have not eaten well for days. I am still waiting (in vain, I think) for my swanky birthday dinner out. (Husband pretty much cancelled my birthday :( ) and I cancelled my work birthday lunch. But this evening I had pasta with home made, home grown tomato a, garlic and oregano suace with smoked mozarella and parmesan. The smoked mozarella needed using up, so I was generous with it... :)

followed by raspberry 'soup' with meringue 'croutons' and whipped cream!!!

Sounds nice Herbie!

Can't remember yesterday, think it was a green smoothie which lasted all day and egg, rice and beans for supper.
Today was porridge with apple and raisins for breakfast, a big salad with ham and a smallish wholemeal roll for lunch and some vegan sausages made from mushroom (bought from the RTC section out of curiosity) with salad and beans followed by
y 3 plums for supper. I was reminded why it is never a great idea to try to make vegan food appear like meat.

That does sound nice Herbi!

Hope you're enjoying your hol Emma! Are you somewhere nice and hot?

Granola this morning and lunch will be a Boots meal deal.

Dinner will be a lamb, spinach and potato curry. I'd like to have a go at a peshwari naan but i'm not sure i'll have time - allowing for proving time etc. And i'm concerned that I wont get that lovely elastic stretchy-ness in mine and it'll taste like one of those horrid supermarket ones! I'll google some recipes anyway.

I had a chocky brioche @ 11.30 and burnt it a bit in the toaster :oops: Late lunch of cherry tomato flan, smoked ckx. and pink fir apples with mayo...Mmmmm! Supper was a small bowl of 2 types of lentil, veg, 2 types of saus. and a bit of the sliced gammon. Nice and tasty and with this Autumnal weather went down a treat.

I have been back on the waggon since our return from Italy last week and my stocks of soft drinks are low so am sipping on a diet coke which is not my fave, but is all I have left..

Mr R had a HM yogurt and honey and a few grapes and I ate grapes and figs. they won't last much longer because the wasps and hornets are making hay!

Lunch with be something eggy - most likely a piperade

I have taken a lamb passanda out of the freezer for tonight so will make a few raitas and fish some hm naans out to go with it.
I'll think of something creative for dessert - more likely we'll eat the creme brullees which are sitting in the fridge.

Chocolate brioche here too, followed by white roll with cheddar and mustard. Last night was a white roll with spread! I am/was at my mother’s. Enough said!

Probably won’t have anything of interest tonight. Too tired to cook.
Off into Kent tomorrow for lunch with friend.
Also still waiting for birthday dinner *and* present. And heartfelt apology... :?

MMMmm ! Patsy.

Brekkie was a crumpet with biscotinni spread - Lunch was an egg mayo doorstep with oodles of tomatoes and a handful of some rather good tortilla chips. Supper is the rest of the 'pork n beans' leftover from the other evening.

Tomorrow is Italian for lunch, probably not a lot for brekkie, supper will be small and insignificant.

We have had a couple of nice eating days. Lunches Thursday and yesterday the usual boring salad. But Thursday dinner was out and had tuna tartare and then duck breast. I never have duck and it was really good. Yesterday we took the afternoon off work and with a good chum hoodwinked her OH (whose birthday it was) and managed to get him to a marina with him thinking it was for a work meeting but we were waiting on a boat with a bottle of bubbles. Spent the afternoon going from spot to spot swimming with a few :cocktail: and some nice nibbles. Ended up at a different island where we had booked a B&B and had dinner at my v fav place - shared shrimp lettuce rolls, 2 types of sushi and a range of dumplings and then daned in the sand on the beach. We all agreed we felt rather glam :D This morning they made breakfast so there was fruit, muesli and yog followed by bacon sarnies :chops:

We have spent the morning swimming and were too full to stop for lunch. So will probably need v early dinner. I have fresh pesto or we might have Sicilian sausage stew. Happy weekend all.
