Smoked chicken salad with lime dressing, I don't have desserts too fattening

We had a freezer surprise; defrosted a random 'wodge' of screwed up unrecognisable meat that has been knocking around in the freezer for ages.

Fortunately it turned out to be two pieces of sirloin steak, I did some potato wedges and roasted red onions with a homegrown red pepper, some garlic and yet more tomatoes from le jardin.

I'm cooking roast lamb too. With spuds, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, peas, gravy and mint sauce. It's oxo gravy in our house.

Individual lemon meringue pies for dessert.

I shall crack on and make tomorrow's chilli con carne today so the flavours can develop. I'll also make beef in beer casserole so we only have to reheat it on Tuesday and serve it with potatoes and veg, not forgetting the horseradish and mustard.

Snap for last evening. Mr BEVS can polish off an entire cheesecake in one round if I don't snaffle a piece.

...edit...

This evening will be lamb & bits leftover pie. Basically chuck it all in a pot to simmer for a while with pearl barley etc and then stick into the oven with a pastry top.

Mr BEVS will be very pleased.

He can have his tinned rice for afters. I'm not baking.

After all these years, I finally got fed-up with the Russian roulette randomness and invested in some labels. The last straw was when I mixed together what I presumed to be two portions of chicken curry - one turned out to be lamb. Baaaaa!!!

Today we had cold slices of pork & apple loaf, a la earlier recommended recipe from Snap Shot that has become a firm favourite, with Pomme frites (oven chips), coleslaw and finished with a side of lightly spiced, iconic Kiwi beetroot (from a tin) .

Coo yum, I wish I'd thought of serving it cold with oven chips and coleslaw, it sounds divine. It's funny, once I get 'in the groove' of serving something one way, it's hard to serve it any other way. Except for cold roast chicken, cold barbeque meat etc.

So. Very stressy day what with one thing and another plus him late from the gym .

Seafood chowder and bread.
Strawberries , icecream, bananas and raspberries (garden) for afters.

Does the pork and apple loaf need to be in Moneypenny's recipe thingy.
Probably does.
