What are you having for lunch/dinner? (Part 2)

I’ve got a pack of chicken drumsticks in the fridge.
Probably go for a marinade, it’s a case of what’s in the larder.
I have a jar of Dijon mustard, some Chianti wine vinegar, citrus fruits and more jars of dried herbs than I can remember.

What could possibly go wrong!

Luncheon = Piece of mature cheddar and a handful of red grapes.

Dinner = Tuna, tomatoes, mushrooms, and onions topped with macaroni cheese and served with carrots and brocolli

Pudding = remainder of fresh fruit salad from yesterday.

Going to have to order in tonight. The new air fryer/instapot hasn’t arrived - the old one kicked the bucket a few days ago.

Do you not have such a sweet old fashioned thing as a cooker, Besoeker? :smiley_cat: :smiley_cat:

I got an air fryer and have used that far more than the cooker, to be honest.

I have been very bad with eating today…it was going to be a fasting day, but I have had cereal, a bagel, and a packet of crisps :frowning_face:

We have a nice built in cooker and a nice hob as it happens…:slight_smile:

I am back on solid food rather than being fed through a drip.

Small portions only.

Fish, chips and peas for lunch, I had 7 chips on my plate.

Just had pasta with salmon and a sauce, 3 fork fulls



Well done, Swimmy. It must have seemed like manna from heaven!

Ah, feel sorry for you swimmers.

We are having homemade Chicken Curry and Rice.


Not me, but being in hospital you cannot help overhearing things.

The man in the next bay ordered for lunch today, spaghetti carbonara, garlic bread, mashed potatoes, cabbage and gravy.

He got it,all on one plate.

Yuk - just the thought is enough to give you a relapse!

Chicken in the slow cooker tonight. The new air fryer/instapot arrived today. Looks it is an all singing and dancing device…:slight_smile:

Smoked Haddock, new potatoes, carrots, runner beans and cauliflower cheese.

Luncheon = homemade carrot and orange soup with a slice of toast.

Dinner = Chicken breast roast in garlic butter and lemon juice, with roast vegs (cauliflower, Brocolli, carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms, onion and garlic)

Leftover marinated ham with macaroni this lunchtime. Very nice too! The Instantpot is a game changer…

Set an extra place please, Tabs. I won’t be long. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

(Makes my mushroom omelette for lunch sound very boring. ?
Not sure about tonight’s tea yet.

Hopel Popel

Never heard of that, Cinders. Had to google it.
Sounds tasty. :grinning:

Can add what you like.
Origins: Hoppel Poppel is a traditional way to use up leftovers in Berlin. It is a variation on the traditional fried potatoes known as Bratkartoffeln.

I had to google it as well - definitely going to try it - here’s the recipe -
