    We had stir fry too, but I forgot to buy the sauce.

    Yesterday we had Roast Beef dinner with the works.

    Today husband had beef salad and I cooked up some pasta to add to the leftover cauliflower cheese.

    Totally bizarre. Husband goes crazy for cauliflower cheese with Sunday lunch, he adores pasta.
    But he doesn’t like pasta with cauliflower cheese.
    Never mind, more for me.

    So I messed with the recipe a bit, I cooked it in the slow cooker, put the meat, stock & Guinness in in the morning before work, along with an onion (that wasn't in the recipe).

    When I got home around 3pm it really just tasted like Guinness & beef, so I added 1tsp of tomato puree, half a teaspoon of sugar, and some Worcester sauce (all not in the recipe), then at about 4pm I added the veg...

    It was absolutely lovey, not as heavy as a winter stew, and I will defiantly have it again.

    Chinese takeaway later in time for the match. Sweet and sour king prawns, vegan mushroom chop suey, mushroom egg foo yung, fried rice, egg fried rice and vegan prawn crackers.

    Homemade vegan Eaton Mess to follow.

    Just a slight chance that a bottle of red may make an appearance, or two.

    We had comfort stodge too.

    Found a tin of corned beef in the cupboard from my Brexit Stash and some pastry in the freezer so I made a corned beef pie.

    Corned beef, onion, cheese, parsley, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, bit of milk. Mix it all together in a bowl.
    Put half the pastry on a large plate, pile on the filling then put the other half of pastry on top.
    Costs about £4, serves four and is absolutely gorgeous.

    Not very healthy though.

    I'm saving this recipe for when I need to butter up the carer, he loves corned beef (me not so much) , he loves pie, and all the other things in this recipe. I think I'll get lots of brownie points if I make this.... Thank you @Carole

    That's camping food - ideal for a wet day in the campervan.

    If it's wet in the campervan you need to ask for a refund.

    Used the wrong noodles hence the murky broth, but a good first effort I felt.

    For @littleme

    This recipe is from “The Dairy Book Of Home Cookery” which was given to me in 1978.
    I think the milkman used to sell them.
    It’s still my favourite cook book, well used, and now held together with masking tape.

    I use a 340g tin of corned beef instead of the 175g in the recipe and I double all the other ingredients.
    I then pile it on a 10” plate (Hedge Rose from Boots, we all had these in the 80’s).
