    A nice fun thread where you can share what you had for dinner.

    For me tonight it was just a microwave lasagne and some lemonade and elder flower slices for afters.

    Slummed it a bit tonight, just pan fried salmon and oven chips with a mini bottle of grown up grapefruit juice, AKA a Marlborough sauvingon blanc.
    In my defense, I don't normally cook on a Sunday evening, having a 2o/c lunch, but today I wanted to go into Bridport for Boots, to pick up an ice pack and knee support.

    Dangerously similar to mind - but I had boiled spuds and veg with mine, and cheap Pinot Grigio.

    Sadly I am not allowed grapefruit juice because I take statins, so I also make do with Sauvingon blanc. It goes well with oily fish doesn't it.

    Pork chop, onions, sprouts and roast spuds followed by rice pud; lazy man's preparation, chop and diced onions 2 hours in slow cooker just covered in water, plus a sprinkling of minced garlic and sage, frozen roast spuds heated in deep fryer, frozen sprouts boiled; water from slow cooker plus bisto for gravy; rice pud from tin, microwaved with some jam added. Followed by a mug of tea

    Yes, I think it's the nookatone in it, but it's been too many decades since I worked in the flavour industry, as a synthetic chemist.
    Agree with the sauvingon blanc, it does go quite nicely with salmon, cuts the oil very well.

    Try Pinot Gris next time - that goes well with fish.

    Our dinner last night was braised pork (I buy a leg roast, and cut it into steaks - we got 6 meals off the latest one), with new potatoes and broccoli.

    It's when you have grapefruit on a regular basis that is the issue.
    Grapefruit prevents the re-uptake of the statins (in other words they don't break down in the liver) so taking statins and regular grapefruit means you will have a higher than prescribed dose of statins in your system.
    For one day this shouldn't make much difference - it is no different than taking your dose earlier one day.

    Come to think of it, they could prescribe statins at a lower dose and a grapefruit to cut down on drug costs....not sure how you could fit a grapefruit in a tablet though:D

    ….And I had a nice ribeye steak, oven chips, tomatoes and mushrooms.
    Then I took my statins:confused:

    There's no name for what I ate for my tea last night.

    It had beef, Cumberland sausage, potato, carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, butternut squash and cabbage in it - all in a gravy so thick I could stand my spoon up in it.

    It was very nice, washed down with a pint of Guinness.

    Cheers, Jeff

    Home made shepherd's pie.
    Very tasty, washed down with a glass of Viognier.
