    Jacket spud - comfort food extraordinaire!! (especially with baked beans and cheese - for reasons which, I must admit, are unclear to me :confused:).

    I thought salad with stew was a convention, in your house? ;) :D

    Anyway, here it was some... errrrrm, food (who cares?) and a few glasses of a mediocre (but quaffable) Malbec.

    My kind of dinner that I enjoy. Sourdough bread, cream cheese, smoked salmon, avocado and sprinkle of sweet chilli sauce. Glass of wine.

    That's odd, Kate. I didn't notice all that 'other stuff' in your photo - just the glass of wine! ;)

    I am eating a lot of rice since the Co-Op last week had an "end of line" offer on boil in the bag rice- 8 portions for 95p and well in date. I got 4 boxes as I am partial to rice and never can cook it right. Co-Op had a reduced to clear packer of chicken stir fry for £1 and some red peppers reduced to clear for 10p so I boiled the rice then threw it, the chicken, two red peppers deseeded and chopped, a chopped red onion, frozen peas I boiled with the rice and some sweet corn in my wok with a little vegetable oil and made a very tasty chicken fried rice

    Had a nice salmon quiche - I had seen Nigel Slater make one the day before on TV and thought I'd give it a go.
    Buggered my neck up making it, but it was nice.
    The day before that he had been making cranachan, which I had just finished eating when the TV show came on - well, mine wasn't actually cranachan as I had replaced whisky with vanilla this time, but it was cranachanish:p

    Just caramelising some onions for an onion gravy to go with sausage and mash for tonight’s food.

    Can't be asked to cook tonight just a big plate of crackers and Red Leicester and some mango chutney on top if I get hungrier later I have odds and ends to nibble on. I did a rather large fry up for breakfast so not that hungry

    I have to ask a simple question how do you caramelise onions?

    Same here, yesterday evening (veggie sausages, of course ;)), but with the addition of stir-fried and salted kale. And it goes without saying... a glass of red, to accompany.

    Onions and a caramac bar melted together in a saucepan.

    Wow, that looks as beautiful as it sounds delicious!

    Cheated tonight - the fireworks display we were going to was postponed as the field was awash, so instead of having burglars and hotdogs we stopped for a fish supper on the way home.

    Just cook them until soft, then turn the heat down, add salt (and bit more oil, if needed), put a lid on the saucepan, and stir every now and again.

    I think I've just gone off caramelised onions. :eek: ;)

    They eventually caramelise using the natural sugars. I occasionally add a small amount of muscavado sugar.
