I made a small pot of Veg Soup today...odd I know considering our warmer weather...but hubby loves Soup.
It was lovely. ( he had a "big" bowl and I had a "small" bowl :biggrin2: ). Both satisfied.

Veggie soup is light and easily digestible and always goes down well. My mutton stew is 90% veggies and I had it X two yesterday for dinner and tea. I had cheddar on oatcakes and a Cox for afters.

I finished the mutton and veggies for dinner and tea with cheese and biscuits for afters. Karl delivered my meat at dinnertime and so that's taken care of. All I have to do this morning is get my BET!

Found a Red Salmon Quiche (long lost), whilst cleaning out my chest freezer this morning. Actually, not THAT long lost because I do remember making it probably 8 weeks ago, but I had completely forgotten it was in there. So we shall have it for dinner tonight. Will do Weight Watchers style oven chips and make a salad.

I had a Scotch Egg and veggies for dinner and a meat pie and veggies for tea. Plenty of veggies in reserve and the mutton and veggie stew will mature today.

Does he need a reason? Perhaps he just wants more......
I had straight veggies for dinner and veggies and mutton for tea with no afters except an apple. Wonderful how the stew improves as it ages.....

Dinner was a bacon and egg butty courtesy of my daughter who was visiting. (Sorry Wendy but it would have been discourteous to refuse! And anyway I enjoyed it!) Tea was the last of the mutton and veggies followed by cheddar and marmalade on oat biscuits. Don't scoff, try it. They go well together! A Braeburn apple for pudding, the Cox's are finished I am afraid.

We went to 'pie night' at the RR social club last night, I had a chicken, bacon and mushroom pie minus the pastry crust (an option at the time of ordering) with mushy peas and steamed veg (no chips). At £6 a head it is a bargain. I washed it down with a pint of 'Ey Up' pale ale, I can't remember the name of the brewery but I suspect it was local as are most of the guest ales. :good:

I've got a link to the Pie night somewhere on my machine. It's on my bucket list - but I'd eat the whole thing. :smile:

Last night I set a 'personal best' for eating things past their 'use by' date. I had a large pot of Greek (style) yoghurt - (actually made in Rochdale), which was marked use by 7 January 2018.

It looked smelled and tasted fine so I had a portion with a splash of Polish Malina raspberry juice on it. I didn't say anything at the time in case it went wrong, but I am happy to announce that I have survived. :smile:

Yoghurt from Rochdale...would that be Lancashire Farm Dairies, aka Pakeeza? (Oooh, are we allowed to use that name?) :smile:

I always ignore dates and use my head and my nose. Like you David, no problems!
I got veggies yesterday and boiled two bags of Broth Bits with minimum water, Oxo, vinegar and salt and pepper so it made gravy. I Had a Scotch Egg with veggies for dinner and a steak pudding and veggies for tea. Apple pie and cream for a treat for pudding! (When I bought the pie Kathy gave me a small pot of double cream as a bonus....)

Steamed Cabbage and Carrots (with a knob of Butter), Plain Bolied Spuds, Grilled Sausage and Onion Gravy. I cooked the Onions long and low, so hopefully no repercussions!

Almost exactly what I had Maz. I had straight veggies X two for dinner and tea. The longer the main event, the stew, has to meld and mature the better it will be! I felt the need for something rougher later and so had scrambled egg with tomato ketchup on six small oatcakes for a treat. Funny how your appetite tells you what you need.......
