I'm doing a turkey stew for dinner tomorrow, using the legs and wings we cut off the bargain fresh free range bronze turkey we bought after Christmas.  The body of the turkey was roasted after brining and portioned up for the freezer, the legs and wings were frozen raw.  I also made lots of stock after boiling up the carcass.  One tub of stock, along with some water and herbs and the de-skinned legs/wings, all in the slow cooker.  Tonight I'll take the meat out and leave it to cool overnight, in the morning I'll pull all the meat off the bones, chop it up and put it back in the slow cooker, along with lots of veggies, adding some dumplings later on.  

Tonight I'm making a beef mince and lentil curry with homemade naan bread.

Traybake of roasted root veggies and mini Cumberland sausages left over from Christmas, with a sauce I'm making of bacon stock, leek and cheese.  A green veg on the side....broccoli or cabbage, probably.

Meat free Monday, so have just made lentil and veg soup for lunch.  For dinner we're having bubble and squeak with a fried egg and baked beans.  Lots of cooked veggies left over from yesterday's dinner and saved in the freezer to use up.

Bit rude to sign up here purely to advertise what appears to be your own website ponder

Sue, I have been either breaking the links or deleting the entries.  As you say it is rude to use this forum to advertise a website.

Lovely to see you here!

I'll try that again!

My Today's main meal is Filipino spaghetti!

Filipino style spaghetti dish is an adaptation of a classic Italian spaghetti with meat sauce with a local Filipino twist. Pinoy spaghetti recipe is the same. It has a pronounced sweet flavor thanks to the red sauce made with tomatoes and sweetened with banana ketchup or sugar. More details here Subway Spicy italian Calories

Oh that sounds delicious! Will check this out. Don't think that we have banana ketchup over in the UK but will check. If not I'll use sugar. Thanks!
