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.

Well starting from today, as I haven't been on here in ages, I've had veg/paneer curry and rice, with onion bhajees and a blob of lime pickle.
Meh, it was ok.
I'm about to have a coconut yoghurt and some mango wedges.

We spent a few days in Edinburgh over half term and I had some wonderful pasta with truffles and mushrooms, flat iron steak burritos, nice cake, excellent breakfasts at the hotel.

We stopped for lunch at the Punchbowl, Crosthwaite in the Lake District on the way home and ended up extending our mini break with a few impromptu nights there too. It’s our favourite place in the lakes...worth a visit if any of you are in the area. Food highlights were the cheese soufflé which never comes off the menu, venison with damsons, turbot with samphire and verjus, and they always have lovely cheese boards. Both children demolished everything given to them too!

Tonight we had beef wellington with skinny fries, green beans and peppercorn sauce. Aldi chocolate fondant desserts afterwards.

Never been there OMCO but it sounds lovely. Near Kendal I believe? Very much like the sound of the grub and think we'll have to visit sometime. :hungry:

We have a Punchbowl near us too, which is a bit of a favourite of ours:

Oooh I’ll bookmark that one for when we’re up that way!

The one we go to is near Bowness, this one... https://www.the-punchbowl.co.uk/

It used to be the sister pub/hotel to the Drunken Duck in Ambleside and is very similar in style.

Sausages, beans and jacket potatoes for dinner tonight. Smoked chilli butter for us on the potatoes, regular for the children. Fruit salad with chocolate dipping sauce for dessert while we watch the fireworks in the distance.

I stopped off at the Coop on the way back from a walk on Sunday. In the RTC section was a 'ready to roast' foil dish containing two small chicken breasts, each topped with a rasher of bacon, two small sausages, two blobs of stuffing and a separate pack of gravy reduced to £2. I cooked it yesterday as it was getting out of date, the items were roasted then added the gravy for the last 15 minutes. I didn't eat any until tonight - it was nice cold although I heated some but all in all it was really tasty. I must look to see how much it is usually. There's some chicken left to eat cold.

I had the Pret vegan Christmas sandwich for lunch. Underwhelmed.
https://www.pret.co.uk/en-gb/3926-Very- ... Lunch.aspx
The carrots had the texture of raw carrot and the rest didn't have a lot of flavour. (I don't think my cold is affected my taste buds.)

n.b. I only allowed myself a Christmas anything in November, as the notion of a Christmas sandwich doesn't quite compute. Not something I had even as a meat eater, aons ago, and the usual thing that makes it a Christmas anything, by default, commerically speaking - namely, cranberries - well I had never even heard of them growing up.

I noticed that Boots were offering a vegan Christmas sandwich today too ( as well as meat ones). Honestly, it was only Guy Fawkes night yesterday!

Today I've had porridge with pear, 2 Rich Tea biscuits, a prawn and pasta salad from Boots and some M&Ms :oops:. Was going to have chunky fish fingers tonight but not very hungry yet, maybe later with some salad veg.

I didn't feel like proper dinner last night, so just had two slices of toast with marmite. So I was quite hungry today...
frangipane tartlet
scrambled egg made with crème fraîche d'Isigny and French Noirmoutier salt crystal butter. Lots of black pepper. It was rather nice.
bread and jam
Ready meal :o but a good cauliflower cheese, with added Dijon and, again, lots of black pepper, pine nuts to finish off.

Yesterday was toast & marmalade for breakfast at Waitrose, a corned beef and salad roll and a pear for lunch and cheese (Stilton) and crackers with a drink of hot chocolate after an evening at the cinema. I was going to have fish cakes but the timing was all wrong and I wasn't that hungry.

Crazy week. My job is so interesting but has been off the charts stressful and busy since Irma :shock:

Monday we had aubergine and lentil chilli. Tuesday I got home from work at 9 so had nothing...... Wednesday we had people over and I made tuna tartare, crab and avocado salad, chilli prawns and Thai chicken kebabs. And edamame. Thursday I had roasted vegetables and fresh pesto. Last night i made a leek and bacon risotto and OH had a bit of ribeye with his.

Such a long time since I updated... AGAIN!

Can't remember if there's been anything exciting to eat the last few weeks. Lots of noodly things and mainly veggie as I've not been to the butchers.

Last night, I went out with friends from work. We shared poppadoms, samosa chaat, onion bhaji, handi chicken and garlic naans.

Today, mushrooms on toast for brekkie.
Out with the boy for lunch. I had falafel salad wrap he had pancake and sausage.
Tea has been a sourdough pizza from aldi.
Very bready all in all!

I went to the butchers today and, amongst other things, bought a turkey breast.

Any thoughts on what to do with it? Google suggests nothing but roasting it, christmas dinner style which, y'know, blah!

Porridge with stewed plums

Currently a beer by the fire while a chicken casserole of sorts works its magic in the oven.

J did promise me a roast dinner though.

Proper chilli and kid friendly chilli on Sunday...with rice, nachos, guacamole, grated cheddar.

Last night we had enormous Barnsley chops served with a one pan roast of red onions, potato wedges, garlic, peppers, balsamic tomatoes, rosemary and thyme. Finished it all off with a scattering of crumbled feta and chopped basil.

I let Lilia choose dinner tonight after gymnastics and she requested Heinz tomato soup with cheese toasties.

Had an adquate Sunday roast type thing in a pub on Sunday. Beetroot and something patties, yorkshire pud (donated to PH) potatoes, carrots parsnips and a big wedge of cabbage that had been seared - not a brilliant idea, but this place persists with it.
A little cheesy single serving fondu in a ramekin from Sainsburys for dinner.
trifle:o
Monday, weird vegan 'mushroom risotto' Pret soup for lunch. Did the cocount cream make it weird? Dinner: casserole with butterbeans, carrots, broccolini and quorn sausages and horseradish dumplings
trifle:o
Yesterday Obakado poached egg, quinoa, avocado kale and red cabbage with a soy and ginger dressing. Small piece of birthday cake (colleague's)
dinner: left over casserole with bubble and squeak on the side
trifle :o
I need to cut out the desserts.

I got a couple of veal shnitzels out of the frezzer for tonight. I'll keep it simple with breadcrumbs and a fried egg on top. saute potatoes and steamed spinach. I made a gooseberry sponge last night and there is some left.

I've been dashing about and living on things from the freezer again. Over the past few days it's been chunky fish fingers, a chicken and gravy pie and I've taken some beefburgers (butcher's sort) out for tonight - there are too many but I couldn't separate them so the remainder will be cooked and frozen probably. All served with veggies I had to hand, they're running low now but there's a whole butternut squash which will be roasted and some eaten and some made into soup and I've got some beautiful (in appearance, they don't taste of much!) tomatoes bought from Lidl, I have already eaten several stuffed with rice, cheese, seeds etc but there are loads left. Breakfasts have been mainly porridge or toast with things on it and lunches soup or something on toast and fruit. Find it such a nuisance to go out in the evening at a time it would be nice to cook and eat something at my leisure!

Also eating from the freezer a lot EM. OH and Lilia even had Fab iced lollies on a freezing cold day earlier in the week :shock: Crumpets and some fruit breakfast. Lunch was soup surprise from the freezer - it was broccoli, potato, leek & stilton. Dinner was freezer beef stew topped with puff pastry to make a pie...with home made chips, carrots and green beans.

I’m aiming for an empty ish freezer in preparation for Christmas!

Last night went to the Fromagerie. I had melanzane parmigiana (they called it parmigiana melanzane. Did this mean it had more cheese in it than usual? It was quite deliciously cheesy, as indeed you'd expect from a cheese place.) and B&B pudding with single cream. Had to persude my dining companion to have her own dessert :?

Last night we had the layered 3 fish roast which is new from Aldi and we were pleasantly surprised by the flavour. Although it said it served 4 and it was only just enough for 2 adults and 2 small children and we don’t have large portions. We had it with a selection of green veg. Plus some cheese later in the evening.

Out all day today with friends and I had cheese filled oatcakes with roast tomatoes and mushrooms for brunch. Coffee and small piece of coffee cake at a wildlife park. Fillet steak with peppercorn sauce and “scoop chips” :? with veg at a lovely pub. Espresso martini for dessert.

Friday lunch time - went to local pub and had an unseemly amount of halloumi in the form of skewers, with chutneys.
Dinner was sourdough pizza from a place that's just opened round the corner. Rather good. Too good for Sydenham, arguably... :o
Yesterday I had a Beyond Meat Burger in the pub in Dulwich village. Quite nice...
then scone and jam and clotted cream at home.
Dinner was spiced butternut squash pasta. It turned out the 'spiced' meant curry?!!
Today: lunch was a baked potato with extra mature cheddar and lots of black pepper and some French salt crystal butter.
I might have another scone after I've made my biscuits...

Yesterday I had pea and mint soup and then a lemon cheesecake pot - both from Pret - for lunch
Dinner was left over melanzane parmigiana. I put a shocking amount of olive oil in it when frying the aubergine. They just kept soaking it up, in spite of presalting. More imam bayildi with cheese. Needless to say it was delicious. Unctusous (in a good way) and melt in the mouth on the second heating. Some left for tonight.

I had not heard of Ants climbing a tree omco! I know virtually nothing about Chinese food. I could count the number of times I've been to a Chinese restaurant on one hand. Wierdly on that hand is a visit to one in Bridlington on a family holiday c. 1973. I guess my parents didn't like it enought to repeat the experiment (we only ate out once a year), then I became vegetarian when I left home.

I stopped using aubergine because it soaked up so much oil. I was late to discover that if you roast them in their skin you can more easily use them with the amount of oil you choose - and that of course, if roasted well they turn into a delicious mush which can be used for many dishes.

Another 'bitty' week so far as I've been out during afternoons and evenings. I mentioned on another thread that I had tried a dish with fried gnocchi, butternut squash and sausage (the recipe called for Italian sausage but I used a German-style smoked one). I made variations of it over a few days using assorted veg, cheese instead of meat etc. Was at GDs last night and had a few veg and a Chicken Dipper with her and tinned Spaghetti Bolognese on toast when I got home :oops: :oops:. It's been mostly bread or toast with cheese (Stilton :chops: ) or egg and fruit and salad the rest of the time. Has anyone been watching Rick Stein? I want to try the courgette moussey thing - it looked lovely and I've got courgettes to use up.

I would normally roast them as slices, but as I was using rather nice home grown tomato passata, I thought I'd push the boat out and try to do this as authentically as possible.

I think this was the passata batchthe tomatoes of which that got left in the oven by mistake while we went out for dinner. Possibly the best one of the lot. Next year, as long, slow roast for each lot. I did wonder though if maybe I should/can bring myself to have a year off tomato growing. I certainly need aa reboot with fewer plants involved, but I find it hard to resist growing a lot.

Your gnocchi dish sounds delicious, EM. I have been doing quite a lot of fried gnocchi of late, but mainly just with butter, sage and parmesan. Would be interesting to branch out a bit.

I watched the first episode of Rick Stein's latest, but it was all very non-vegetarian (not surprisingly) so not bothered since. (Plus I find him a bit smug.) A courgette moussy thing sounds interesting :)

It was a Courgette Charlottine served with a meat dish. It was made by a lady he visited so no recipe on the programme page. There were grated courgettes (I think they were grated at least), 5 eggs, 5 tblespoons cream, tarragon and seasoning which made I think at least 6 individual moulds (roughly the size of the individual Christmas puds one can buy). Hard to know the exact ratio of courgette to the rest, if I try it I will try a smaller amount. They were all whizzed up until frothy then baked in oven, possibly in a bain marie. Needs some experimentation! It's towards the end of the Burgundy episode where he is cooking with a lady if you wanted to skip the rest on iplayer. She also did delicious-looking chanterelle mushrooms finished with cream (and meat juices but it would be delicious without!).

The gnocchi is good with mushrooms, tomatoes and butternut squash (I cooked some squash in my usual way roasted with spices and honey and it lasted over several days) - with cheese of your choice (I had grated cheddar one day and chunks of Stilton another) :chops:. I added a pinch of powdered garlic as well - thinking about it, finely chopped onion would be a nice addition too (one of those things where you can add any leftovers or things lurking in the fridge really!).

Gosh, that's very similar to a Rose Elliot recipe I used to make a lot (that used courgettes rather than aubergines and was more of a gratin- it included pre-cooked rice as well as eggs and seasoning). It reminds me of it however and makes me think I must make it again soon. Sounds lovely does that EM! :chops:

All sounds lovely!

I keep getting error messages on here. Will persevere!

Last weekend was pretty amazing - both as a weekend and food wise. A group of us went across to one of the other smaller islands and spent the weekend together. Ill try to post a picture to the facebook page as we were on the most stunning beaches imaginable!

On the Friday night we went to an Asian tapas place and shared shrimp lettuce wraps, sushi, jerk chicken won ton, some sort of tacos and Korean ribs. Delicious. Then danced all of that off on the beach :lol: Cooked breakafast on Saturday morning which was lovely then a day chilling and jumping off rocks into he sea with the children. In the evening we ate on the beach. I had brought a quinoa salad and hummus. There were quiches, other salads and doubles (Trinidadian chick pea ‘sandwiches’). On Sunday we had brunch at a gorgeous place overlooking the sea and I had a burger with truffle fries :chops:

Not that much exciting in the the week. We get a veg bag and it was full of local basil so a big batch of pesto formed the main part of one meal. Had a chicken curry another evening. OH in charge tonight so.....

Oooooooh Rocky :luv: What an amazing sounding weekend you had...food and otherwise!

Last night I had my niece and nephew round for dinner as my sister and BIL were out. I cooked a marmalade roast ham with dauphinois potatoes and a selection of veg. Rice pudding and fruit for dessert. Gosh, looking after 4 cheeky monkeys is hard work. I had a large glass of wine when they went home and mine were in bed :D

Out to see Frozen 2 tonight so we grabbed a quick McDonald’s beforehand and had popcorn during. Plus a glass of fizz as it’s a small independent cinema with a bar. Wow, that was an unhealthy dinner :? Will try and eat more fruit and veg tomorrow.

Tea and toast
A selection of Indian snacky things.

We have chums coming round this evening.
J is in charge and I don't think we will starve...

Scallops with black pud and pea salsa
Beef stew with horseradish dumplings and veg
Blackcurrant tart (my contribution)
Cheese and crackers for those who want it.

There will be beer, wine and lots of laughs.

Saturday was out on a boat and stopped for lunch. I had the freshly caught wahoo with a few chips and salad. In the evening I just had roasted veg. On Sunday we helped some friends move house and had lunch afterwards. I had a chicken roti. Can’t remember what we had in the evening.

On Monday I had lunch whilst Skyping my mum and had smoked salmon bagel. The evening was lovely. Met some friends briefly on the beach for birthday drinks and then home for one of my favourite boats and pieces - tuna tartare, edamame a few dips and - slightly bizarrely gazpacho. All yum

Yesterday the usual salad for lunch. Dinner was courgetti with pesto cherry tomatoes and prawns.

Roti Wednesday today so that is lunch. Not sure on dinner.

Sorry Sea. I have tried to answer this and keep getting told I’m illegal. Trying from a different device!

Wahoo is a meaty white fleshed fish. The flavour is similar to mackerel but it is a big fish. I actually had exactly the same for lunch yesterday when we were out really :chops:

We were invited a barbecue in the evening. There was teriyaki beef, delicious prawns skewers and chicken thighs and lots of salads. Quite a few :cocktail: too :oops:

Wednesday: Welsh Rarebit, slice of Victoria sponge for lunch in a cafe. Dinner: ready meal macaroni cheese (a nice one.)
Then ill, so nothing until Friday night when I had two cream crackers with a bit of butter.
Nothing then until Saturday evening: a little scrambled tofu with a kind of rosti thing (Amy's kitchen ready meal)
Sunday we had lunch in Zizzi. I had aubergine rotolo, then hot, chocolate brownie with ice cream. So back in eating business just about! I enjoyed it immenseley. My sense of taste and smell seems heightened.
Today, two marmite rice cakes for lunch. Dinner is roasted BN squash with melted fontina and pecorino with crispy sage - inspired by a side in Zizzi which sounded nice but which I did not have. Hoping it will work.

Not posted in a while. Belated happy birthday Rocky and anyone else I’ve missed! x

Christmas shenanigans have started here...we had a night out with a work couple at a Nepalese place and I had the Himalayan curry and shared rice and dosa. School Christmas fair with some lebukchen and mulled wine. Christmas lights switch on with more mulled wine and an Italian meal with family of gnocchi with truffle, parmesan and wild mushrooms. Also our annual festive afternoon with family in Castleton where I had a slow cooked beef rib with clapshot and sprouts.

It turns out that my 10 month olds favourite food is currently sage and onion stuffing so she’s going to be happy over the coming weeks :)

Normal night in tonight and we cooked Spanish chicken with chorizo, butter beans, spinach and slow roast peppers, alongside paprika potatoes and green beans.

We’ve been sent a box of hotel chocolate mini desserts chocolates so we’re working our way through those as well.

Not nearly as interesting I'm afraid.

Porridge with stewed damsons
Left over veg thing that I mentioned on "What have you cooked veggie today."
It was equally delicious at room temperature.
Tonight is cod with sauté potatoes and peas.
