It's icky cold for so many of us today. What are you going to have tonight?

Got a pot of red beans and ham hocks going here. Should start smelling good in about an hour.

last nights veggies were SO good...there were some left, but not many, so......I roasted some more, lol! Added a bottle of passata and its a sort of rich veg sauce.....so I'll join DH with pasta tonight and oodles of veggy sauce and cheese!

Also, I had 3 plums that needed something done with them so made a compote with them, adding some frozen berries and an apple and a teaspoon of honey. So We'll have that with some yoghurt, and maybe some crumbled cookies on top.

Keep warm my cold friends!

Pork chops and potatoes here. Not sure about the rest yet. Boring. Sigh.

Although it's not cold here (windows and doors open), I have a bag of avocados that I have to use. Sounds like shrimp salad on some slice avocados to me. They are pretty small and oh so good.

Well, we're expecting 50cms of snow tonight, it's already started. I have odds and sods of cheeses, and a loaf of beautiful Italian bread going hard. So, it's cheese fondue and a salad in front of the fire.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I'm thinking a piece of fish would be nice with rice for a starch and mixed veggies. Guess I'll thaw out a piece of cod

Baked chicken crusted with mayo, herbs and cornflake crumbs, creamed spinach with bacon and Parmesan, homemade cinnamon applesauce, hot rolls. Dreary and wintry here.

I know I've mentioned many times that he will not eat much of anything healthy. He's a very special and intellligent guy . . . yet he wonders why he feels like crap all the time!
