I'm going to make the wife a lovely Chicken Masala curry later on tonight.

I've enjoyed making a curry since the 1980s.

There is nothing better than having the wood burner burning and enjoying a nice meal while watching the TV.

Self indulgent I know but I picked nearly a kilo of Gooseberry's and made a Gooseberry crumble.
I promised myself this when a long time ago I was in a restaurant and thought I would have the Gooseberry crumble but there was none left.

I resolved this by buying 4 bushes last year and this is the first crop.
Food miles 50 feet, cooked within 10 minutes so looking forward to tasting it.

Roast Chicken tonight as I purchased 3 last week at a reduced price but noticed today that they are all dated a couple of days ago.
Middle dog is getting over pancreatitis so eats lots of chicken etc.
Roasted one earlier for them and we shall have a meal and what ever is left can go to the dogs or I make pies tomorrow.

Potatoes may be from the garden, I purchased 2 bags of seed potatoes some time ago at the end of the season and they were reduced to 50p a bag.
So far I have dug about 1/3 of the plot and there have been loads, some the size of small boulders, what great value and excellent for roasting.

Did steak and ale pie yesterday.
Put one up for dd to take back to uni this morning but I was half asleep loading her cool bag so forgot her pie .... bad mother that I am.

So, I'm half guiltily going to eat her steak and ale pie (minus the pastry) with pots and peas.

Cottage Pie with a couple of spare sausages thrown in and a side of leaks chopped and fried in butter and black pepper with mature cheddar cheese grated and added to melt into the leaks.

Followed by apple and cranberry pie I made earlier, with a generous dose of cream.

No-one is on a diet when they come here for dinner...……..

Today I made Lazy Chicken Stew.

The "lazy" bit being that I didn't saute anything, just put it all in the pot and left it in the simmering oven until I was ready to eat it at tea time.

Delish!!

Also made up a big batch of leek and potato soup which I will portion out and freeze tomorrow.

Sausage Toad in the Hole today with roast potatoes.
Did the Yorkshire pudding to a recipe I copied from James Martin and reduced it for the 2 of us - never had a better batter, I had to lower the shelf in the oven half way through cooking it was so big.
