The clocks went back yesterday so it's pitch black outside despite only being 5.45pm. It's rained all day and boy, has it rained! And for some reason it's colder indoors than out. The central heating may have to go on later.
OK, so it's comfort food for dinner, tea, supper* or whatever you like to call it. I have sweet potatoes, ordinary potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, garlic, onions,
mushrooms, and a celeriac that needs using up. Thinks : soup or veg curry?
The latter, I think. I've a tin of black-eyed beans to provide protein, a tin of coconut milk and/or may add a few hard-boiled eggs. Will make plenty then I can have some left for tomorrow.
*Oop north, traditionally, dinner is eaten at midday, tea (unless preceded by "afternoon" which makes it posh and an excuse to over-indulge in cake
) is a substantial meal eaten in the early evening and supper is the biscuit you have at bedtime with your cocoa. Even if your midday meal is a packed lunch (a "piece" or "snap" or "packing up" or a sandwich) it's still called dinner.
