    6oz chuck steak burger in a bap with sliced onion and tomato, washed down with a big glass of Baron de Ley.
    Now having a wedge of cheesecake while watching the box.

    Not the ultra skinny catering ones everyone around here sells, fried in oil until they become thin strips of grease that when you bite into them explode into a grease laden mess. I admit I can eat them when they are piping hot but they cool very quickly and when they do that's when they become ghastly and every fast food place around here fries at least one massive sack of them at the same time then leaves them under a light for however long it takes to sell them

    Tonight was ham salad and fresh strawberries from the veg box. Our boxes this week were a salad box and a fruit box but now having tried most of the options available the 'couple's box' with additional items added seems out preferred one! Just wait until this week's box gets here when I can be proved wrong and have to eat large portions of humble pie every day next week!!!!:confused:

    A rather lovely beef and mushroom pie with jersey potatoes, carrots and peas. She does a very nice pastry.

    Leftover curry. Made it a couple of days ago and has become a wee bit milder with resting. Hotter than we usually eat, but still rather tasty. Sadly no poppadoms to be found at either local supermarket.

    When you have made a curry that is a bit too hot, have you tried adding plenty of chopped fresh coriander leaves? Coriander is very easy to grow. I suppose you know that already but the suggestion might be useful to someone here.

    Yes, I rather like that but I know a good number of folk can't stand the stuff. I also like coconut and ground almonds for similar purposes. Choice of accompanying drink important too. Thistly Cross cider tonight.

    Hate coriander leaf. Can almost take powder.
    Hate coconut - too much as a kid, along with caraway seeds - was the only cakes post war!
    Happy with ground almonds.
    Pass the cider please.

    Spicy chicken and cous cous from a recipe from our son who is in Qatar! Since lockdown our culinary repertoire has become more international

    We had a surprisingly nice Salmon, prawn and white wine Wellington from Aldi. Considering the cost it should have been awful, but far from it. Tasted anything like M&S would sell.
    I was going to make a carbonara but we'd already had loads of eggs in some frittatas that Sarah made at lunch time, so that might be tonights unless I decide to venture out (not left the house since Saturday) and get something to BBQ instead.

    I was talking about with my mum yesterday about food she used to cook us as kids. One thing that sticks in my mind that I will cook soon was plaice cooked with banana's and flaked almonds. Sarah was nearly throwing up at the thought so it'll have to be just for me, or maybe when the apocalypse has passed, for my mum too.

    I had plaice with grapes, but never bananas. Similar sort of texture, I guess.
    I used to love banana with home cooked ham. Fried the banana in butter. That was nice bbq'd too, in its skin (split) with brown sugar and rum if you wished (I never liked rum).

    I found this recipe yesterday for banana stuffed plaice which sounded quite nice. I reckon @MJB is salivating at the thought.

    I used to BBQ bananas but instead of sugar, use mars bar.

    Correction, instead of banana.
