  1. What are you having for dinner today?

    My dinner is akin to Irene's (including Actifry chips) but with Tesco mushy peas. I think the Harry Ramsden brand is grossly overrated. Note: I always Actifry my chips in goose or duck fat for the best crisp finish.
  2. Sultana Slab Tray-bake

    Reminds me somewhat of a cake my granny used to make. The main difference being was that the sultanas were steeped in orange juice. I remember a great treat was to drink the excess juice after the soaking the fruit.
  3. What are you having for dinner today?

    Toad in th' 'ole, mashed spuds and runner beans.
  4. Creamy Chicken Curry

    Regarding the fresh vs reheated chicken, I entirely agree. Regarding the use of green peppers -YUK. They dominate anything they are used in with a characteristic powerful "green" flavour. Ripe peppers are fine (red, yellow, orange) but green, never!
  5. What are you having for dinner today?

    Today is chicken "mini-fillets" with wild mushrooms (including a bit of truffle from a jar) together with frozen peas, broad beans and mashed sweet potato/real potato mixture.
  6. Butternut Squash

    Medium size butternut squashes available at Tesco for 80 pence today.
  7. What are you having for dinner today?

    Salmon fillets ("lightly smoked" ex Waitrose) dry fried (place the salmon skin side down in a hot pan and sufficient oil is exuded to be able to fry the fish). Served on Singapore noodles with sliced mangetout and sweet chilli sauce.
  8. What are you having for dinner today?

    I stopped drinking alcohol (in all forms and presentations) on December 2nd, 1999. That was the date of my first tangible heart attack and my first near-death experience. I had a second two days later. Apparently, I had had several painless, but very damaging, attacks in the previous few weeks. During my recovery, I had plenty of time to think about life, the universe and everything and I decided that I didn't need alcohol. I'm not blaming alcohol for any of this but I should emphasise that I haven't missed it in all of these seventeen years. In four days time, it is the first anniversary of my latest residence in the coronary care unit.
  9. What are you having for dinner today?

    Baps = barm cakes in Manchester environs. My dinner today is homemade beef burgers, fried onions, sauté potatoes and cooked salad. There are some runner beans lurking in the fridge but I'm not sure they are really suitable. The cooked salad is the remains of a packet of mixed salad (rocket, chives and baby spinach) microwaved for a minute or so to cook.
  10. What are you having for dinner today?

    Cauliflower, leek, celery & potato soup (vegan version) + cream (vegetarian version) + crisply fried pancetta slices (carnivore version). I will be having the last option. Been having a fridge clearout!

    I had flu once - in my twenties. It was possibly the worst experience ever. I actually wanted to die.
