A CFC pack of beef strips for stir-fry, but I plan to do a stroganoff with it, and I found Delia's recipe for the poor man's stroganoff, which I think I'll try. I do like slow-cooked food - always seems to be more flavoursome. Plus it takes away the last-minute cooking standing over the hob! ok James Martin serves it with sauteed potatoes, whereas Delia serves it with rice.  i_am_hungry

Yes, slow cooked food does taste good, and even more so the next day.

Today we're having a stir fry with a (bought) mix of veggies and edamame beans, noodles and fresh salmon.

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O

OH has an appointment to get his Warfarin levels checked at the surgery late this afternoon so I'm going to cook a gammon joint in the pressure cooker when we get home.  I've prepared the veg and sauce to serve with the meal. Think I'll make a fresh fruit salad for pud and serve with some yoghurt.

I made rocky road last night to take to our quilting group today. However, we had some French biscuits which were not very tasty, so I thought I'd use them - liven them up a bit ... trouble was, when I tried to break them, they turned into crumbs! So my rocky road was a smoother road than planned, so I added a tub of glace cherries for a bit of texture!

My friend said of the cherries - oh good, that's one of my five-a-day!  big_laugh

Egg and beans on toast is lovely, we don't have it often but every time we do, I wonder why we don't!

We had the cottage pie I made and froze at the beginning of the week, with green veggies.

Roasted a small pork joint and served with all the trimmings.  Poached the last of the red gooseberries from the freezer and served with yoghurt for pud.

Leek, ham and cheese pasta bake - because I need to use up the remains of a gammon joint I cooked last week and still have a few leeks out in the garden.  Will put a crumble in the oven at the same time.
