    we are quite lucky that our family are all fairly close, some within walking distance icon_smile.gif

    We had most of them here yesterday (also made an extra one for our friends as they work long long hours and often are too tired/late to cook when they get back)

    Steve, you have more energy than I have right now ... icon_lol.gif

    I totally hate the idea of cooking for a crowd!! Okay, we've had some issues with the health of my husband in the last 4/5 months, BUT, but ... I've had my time of cooking for a crowd here, when my son was at university! And used to descend on us, 6 - 12 huge guys at a time! Mannn, can I tell tales of those days! icon_eek.gif Oh me, oh my ... icon_eek.gif

    I am so happy he's married, with 2 kids of his own, and much as we totally adore them all, they are too far away to drop in for meals!!

    (I think in my case it is simply old age catching up with me!)

    Your food looks amazing, wonderful, generous, as always! icon_lol.gif

    Oooo I am up for lasagna wonder how fast I can get a flight to England?

    ok on with the show......

    leftover lasagne the day after for lunch

    now this was a thing of genius if I do say so myself..... I
    Black peas, I've had them in the past just in a cup with pepper and vinegar on, while walking around an open market. They are very similar to dried marrowfat peas..... and you make pea and ham soup from marrowfat peas... so I merged the ideas... made the black peas with a smoked gammon joint in it... then took it out and sliced it ...

    at the same time I was having the black peas my other half decided to re-live one of her childhood memories and have chips and gravy !

    next day I had the peas and ham in my baitbox icon_smile.gif

    came home to a roast chicken dinner

    next days bait, using up the ham (from the peas) and the chicken (from the roast dinner) added to bulgar wheat (with tomatos, celery, spices, stock etc)

    got home and went a little off the wall.. made liver rendang (curry) ! (I love liver, I love curry... so I thought lets give it a go.. and liked it)

    for my breakfast/brunch today.. A discovery I made on the previous curry night with my brother... His daughter rang and asked if she could call up after work.. no problem we've plenty.. she arrived but was starving (hadn't eaten all day) and the curry wasn't I opened the freezer and spotted some shop bought "cumberland" sausage rolls.. stuck them in the oven... now the mango chutney was out for the curry.. a dip and ... woah what a great combo !...

    started on tomorrows bait... cooked some Spanish spiced sausages thinking I'd put them in pasta or some such.. then thought about sausage rolls, pulled out some shop bought pre-made puff pastry... and tomorrows bait was born.

    and finally.. tonights tea .. chorizo and veg with a rich tomato and pepper sauce with pasta and cheese...

    Steve think the left over lasagna has more appeal to me than it did the first go around.

    Good shot of the gravy it is hard to shot steaming items and not get blur.

    I would eat your frozen rolls with chutney, they look mm mm good.

    Good idea putting sausages in puff pastry would be a nice change from the biscuit/crescent rolls we see at a lot of pot lucks and parties.

    you might be able to tell the day are getting colder.. the big ol winter bear is making his demands on my eating habits.. lol

    baitbox.. using butchers sausage (spicy Spanish pork) to make sausage rolls...

    after a long day at work, then straight out to do the weekly shop, we both just wanted something quick and EASY... so got some meat for a butty.. a pie.. scotch egg.. and as I was putting it on the plate, thought it looked a bit like a plougmans lunch so added cheese and some fig chutney....

    next morning.. cheese and sweet (mild) chili sauce on a naan for breakfast

    decided to have a Saturday with the family (rather than a Sunday roast) thought hotdogs and onions would be easy.. then changed my mind and made a lamb chilli to go with it... steamed onions.. cheese .. sauces etc.

    one of the grandchildren doesn't like hotdogs so I made a chicken souvlaki for her

    the chilli ready to go (note no beans, just meat, onions and peppers)

    and served up with everything on...(the nearest is mine with a blue cheese sauce and garlic.. and mild sweet chili sauces)


    the chicken for one of them

    Later on some of the grandchildren were hungry again (hollow legs?).. so out of left over finger rolls, some pizza sauce I'd made earlier in the week, leftover steamed onions, some fresh onion, the grated cheese etc.. they/we made pizzas !

    and 3 of them wanted to stop over... and in the morning needed big breakfast...

    and I would have put beans on, but didn't have any... they would all eat spaghetti (the tinned in tomato stuff).. but didn't have any.. so I improvised...

    and I made myself (out of the same ingredients without the spaghetti)
    a stack of breakfast

    later on I made a roast chicken dinner just for the two of us... steamed carrots, cabbage, brussels, roasted red onion and courgette, boiled new potatoes and Yorkshire pudding..

    leftover Sunday roast for my baitbox

    and after another long day at work.... Gammon, Egg, Chips and beans (with that mild sweet chilli sauce on, just to be different)

    todays bait some small french toasts with mackerel (in a curry sauce) and a cuppa soup..(couldn't be bothered last night, was tired)

    came home and it was a mix and match, some bratwurst in the fridge, some chips from the freezer, leftover gravy from the roast... erm a garlic bread.. green beans.....

    and put more blue cheese sauce on... actually really enjoyed this
