Snapper sounds good.
I'm making Madeira roast chicken with steamed veg (broccoli, carrots, sweet potato, courgettes) for my hubby and kids.
I'll just eat the veg or maybe make a gazpacho for myself.

I made the Madeira chicken and also some brown rice.
Family loved it! I had some of the rice with 2 fried eggs. Sounds bland but it was pretty darn good. Think I have a new fave :)

We are having hotdogs and mixed fingerling potato salad. I might fry up some homemade Mexican chorizo as a topping or maybe some of my "Coney Island" sauce, which is sauted sliced onions, chopped garlic, a 14.5oz can of stewed tomatoes and Crystal hot sauce to taste.

We had Spanish style beef stewed with port (Claudia Roden recipe) with very peppery (black pepper) potato boulangerie. There was leeks/onions/carrots/peppers/tomato in the stew so I didn't do any veg on the side.

Nice but a bit sweet for me, will use the combination of veg again but use red wine as normal, plus beef stock and bacon. I didn't mean to make the potatoes so peppery (burning hot) but they were so good I am definitely doing that again

And less that 450 calories for the whole dinner, whats not to love?

Haven't had lunch yet - still 10/24 here. It's a beautiful sunny warm day, & I have no desire to cook. Order in Shawarma or falafel & eggplant salad.

snippers, as you yourself don't like chicken, how often do you end up having to make it for your family?

is your hubby a good sport about having meals that you like, but he doesn't care for?
