Braised lamb leg steaks, mash and peas. My magic ingredient for the gravy is mushroom ketchup, substitute for worcestershire sauce if you have none to hand and further substitute with brown sauce if no mushroom ketchup or worcestershire sauce available. No more than plate polishing for the dogs as there was not a scrap left. No, not even a pea skin.

Jack is a good washer-up. I don't use hot water in the kitchen but by the time he has cleaned something all the fat is gone and a drop of detergent with cold water and a Scotchpad keeps me clean and decent.

Stole some veggies out of the stew for lunch and the main event was ready by tea time. Good warming stuff! Sausage butty for breakfast this cold morning!

I made a slow cooked casserole with shin beef and root vegetables, I made a few dumplings seeing as we have grafted at the allotment all day and I made a sago pudding too.
I was interested to read on the packet that sago in the packet are seeds off the sago plant.
There's enough for tomorrow too.

BB, I seem to remember the Sago Palm Tree. The stew will bite the dust today. Could be a day of bits and pieces.

I chucked a bit more veg and stock into the casserole and simmered it for an hour on the stove top and it tasted great. Sago pudding went really thick but delicious warmed up.

Tomorrow is shrove Tuesday, I have made a bolognaise sauce which I am going to use as a filling for pancakes then I bake it all in the oven with cheese on the top , it's a bit like canneloni but with pancakes.

Then it will be pancakes with syrup or sugar and lemon juice for pud.

That's a favourite trick of mine BB. A few veg chucked in and simmered for half an hour and you've got a very cheap meal! Nearly did it yesterday but I had a sausage and a black pudding left.
Pancake Tuesday today......

Hope you have all had your pancakes - hubby had them at lunch time, I am not keen so I had tomatoes on toast. Fish & chips for tea, I have an oxtail stew cooking in the slow cooker for tomorrow.

Oxtail sounds good Moh. I made another roast stew with two Tamworth chops. Only three chops left in freezer so I shall ring Stewart today and see what he has hanging that's a bit different. I'd be happy with another batch of rare breed pork...

The oxtail looks Ok, I found a tin of new potatoes in the cupboard near their sell by date so I have thrown those in. I don't usually buy new potatoes in tins but they are handy when we are in the caravan.

I do the same with packs of Charlotte salad potatoes. They stay in one piece and take up the flavour from the meat. One helping of pork stew left...

Triggered By BB and Moh I got a bag of broth bits yesterday (89p) and stretched the roast stew to one extra meal. (And very healthy!) Butcher's day today and a discussion with Stewart about the next refill of the freezer!

Last of the Tamworth cross roast stew will bite the dust today. I did a Moh and stretched it with a quid's worth of carrots. Healthy and cheap!

Funny thing is I am not sure what I had. When I got back from the butcher's I found that Stewart had added a bonus to my bag. They seemed to be spiced sausage meat wrapped in a thin layer of another meat and bound up in streaky back bacon. A sort of complicated 'Pig in a Blanket'. I grilled them and had them in a butty. They were very good!

The other day we had lunch at Holden Antiques centre on Grane Road. Bob had a tuna pasta bake and it occurred to me that we hadn't made that for ages. So... last night Bob made a tuna past bake and it was delicious.

Bob has just told me it is sleeting!!!!

Smoked duck tonight, a request by Claire as it is her birthday.
If you keep searching you will find it
