What are you having for dinner today?

My pea preferences depend on the meal I am eating.

I regard the different types of peas as different vegetables - in a similar way to instant coffee or Camp coffee having little resemblance to the real stuff. In that way, I see fresh peas different to frozen peas, in turn, different to tinned marrowfat, different to mushy, different to tinned garden peas and so on.

We always buy frozen as they are fresher than those so called fresh bought in a shop. We do love canned mushy peas with fish and chips. We do find canned peas a little strange in their flavour. Each to his/her own of course.

Today 'Er indoors has requested baked spud with beans. I will of course have plenty of chopped onion with mine.

It's pointless for us to buy fresh peas. They never make it to the saucepan - I eat them all out of the pod. I have been known not to bother to shell them - eat them pod 'n all.

Minted lamb shanks, taters and veg for us today. The shanks were put in the slow cooker at 05:45 am this morning and will be slowly bubbling away until we have dinner at about 5:00 pm.

 

I hate lamb fat - so for me a long slow cook is ideal followed by resting the residual gravy in a tall glass vessel to make it easy to skim off the liquid fat which floats to the top.

Bought some mixed fish this morning so it's fish in an onion & parsley sauce with a sweet potato mash and sugar snap peas.

Yesterday was an invention of cauliflower with Polish sausage in a cheese & tomato sauce. Surprisingly good.

 

Today is braised pig's liver & onions with sauté potatoes and the other half of the cauliflower (it was very large).

Lamb chops, broccoli, potato and onion cakes and mint sauce with gravy.

 

Potato and onion cakes are similar to the ones in the recipes section with the addition of onion powder - amount to suit.

Pops, it looks like we are the only ones still eating on here. Even Irene who started the thread appears to be on a strict diet.

That's hardly an accurate statement - I eat occasionally.

I just had my standard breakfast of 2 slices of toasted granary bread with a lavazza brewed coffee and a glass of fresh orange juice. Because it is what I have every day you would get bored with me posting it.
