Oh and apologies folks if my beef looks overcooked but I'm still trying to educate myself with eating beef rare or at least medium rare and getting better but when I cook it at home I'm still not brave enough and cook it longer:) When I'm out in the restaurant I have started asking for it medium which is a huge progress from two years ago when I could only say well done!!(Please don't strike me) I understand the reasoning but I'm a bit squeamish when it comes to rare meat and blood etc

Your beef looks marvelous, jonny!

I just put chicken breasts and veggies in the crockpot with water and seasonings. It's either going to be chicken-rice soup or chicken with veggies and rice on the side, making a gravy in a separate pan. At least it's in there.

Meatless minestrone.

Maybe a pan of biscuits to warm up the kitchen.

Thanks VB:) I just know most people like to see a bit of pink but it still tasted moist and juicy and lots of flavour.

Either option sounds good to me and very warming dish for a cold day! Good to see you have made a start

Undecided. Might thaw a tri-tip and do something different with it, i.e. chimichurri sauce or (Mark Bittman's) Romesco sauce. Salad. Dessert to be determined.

we had ratatouille (minus the aubergine but plus butter beans) and neck of lamb slow cooked in red wine and rosemary.

1 child refused to eat it at all and the other sat and picked at it

I liked it and so did dh but I swear the longer I spend preparing a meal the less likely the little sods are to eat it (however at ikea the other night their meatballs and chips went down so fast they barely touched the sides)
