    Tonight (and tomorrow) will be a topside steak casserole - I put in a carrot, an onion, a couple of cloves of garlic, salt, and a dash of Worcestershire Sauce, topped up with vegetable water, if I have it, otherwise tap water. Since we're running the oven, we'll have baked potatoes, and carrot, as well.

    Verdict - success!

    I could have sautéed the chicken a little longer, as it turned out very slightly drier than I like, but other than that it was a perfect crockpot stew. The veg was well cooked and not falling apart, and the potatoes well cooked but not falling apart.

    Next week's experiment will be a pork kebab stew, which will probably take an hour longer. We will see.

    Probably the same way I do - juniper, slice of lemon, bark of the Cinchona tree, followed by hops and malt. :D

    Well for a start this thread is "What did you have for dinner?" not breakfast/lunch etc. I start the day with a smoothie today I did mango lassi and I had a couple of satsumas whilst at work
    I often mention eating raspberries, strawberries, grapes etc after dinner
    Only the other day I mentioned my dinner was that vegan thing I really like made from butternut squash. I often do a tray bake with sausages and various roasted veggies or even just roasted veggies.
    And when I say I had onions and mushrooms with my sausage sandwich I mean a LOT of mushrooms and onions
    Tonight I had rice stuffed red peppers with a little salad on the side
    Even when I have the now infamous frankfurters I usually have them with new potatoes, mushrooms, sweet corn and any other leftover veggies

    Katsu beef noodle chinese veg type thingy. Quite nice.
    Just stir fried the veg, set aside, more hot oil and add the strips of beef (sirloin, skinny bits from waitrose), spring onions and extra ginger, then bung the veg back in and the noodles, bit of chicken stock and the katsu sauce. Then just added a few bits like chilli flakes, soy, sesame oil.

    I got some minted lamb kebabs reduced to clear from the Co-Op so I had those with roasted mushrooms loaded into pita bread with chopped cucumber, red onion and red pepper mixed together with a garlic and herb mayo and beer battered onion rings on the side

    Tonight (and tomorrow night) will be chicken pie - made with chopped mushrooms fried in butter, the diced remains of last night's roast chicken, and the leftover gravy.

    Venison and celeriac curry with rice, remains of last night's potatoes fried and the remains of last night's salad (not fried, just because I am Scottish does not mean I am a cliche).:)

    I made a sort of pesto out of broad beans and basil served with orecchietta pasta and watercress. I saw it in The Guardian and very nice it was too. Im not really a fan of pesto as it can be too strong but this was very light as it was mainly the broad beans.

    Shelling 450g of them for the dish was a real PITA

    I haven't had broad beans in years. Back in the 70s when I bought my first house, the previous owners had planted a garden before the sale - it was all broad beans. As a frugal person, I insisted we had to eat them. My wife has disliked them ever since.
