    Pizza.......
    Greasy, doughy, stringy, always burns the roof of your mouth/chin/lips

    Don't get me wrong, I love all of the toppings on a pizza (except mozzarella), but not together.... And not that doughy soggy base - vile.

    The ONLY nice pizza, is home made French Bread Pizza. (Or cheese on toast).

    Thai Red curry, I found a new paste, hopefully this is hotter than the Red Dragon sauce I've been using. I've never found one to match the lovely flavour of the one I found in lidl a few years ago, a huge pot that lasted ages, and they've never had it back in stick since...

    Home made steak pie, with ½ inch pastry. I left the cooking of the meat to the youngest, it's a wonder there was any to put in the pastry case, he ate loads.
    All meat purchased courtesy of Sainsburys yellow sticker bit.

    Back to school tomorrow, so glad to have routine again!

    Pie for tea tonight, husband requested roast potatoes rather than mash which was a nice swap (plus an opportunity to squeeze in more vege - roasted parsnips and carrots!)

    Even made spag bol for tea tomorrow while everything was in the oven!

    I expect this level of organisation to last about two days!

    We had the other half of yesterdays steak pie, tasted well lush second time around.
    Youngest says he wants us win the lottery, so I can stay home and cook for him every night.

    We went to the Seven Stars earlier. Much improved from our last visit.

    Spag bol (so organized!)

    My only moan is the husband made WAY too much spaghetti!

    This is what happens when I leave him in charge - carb central every time! You'd think I starve the poor man!

    Gawd that sounds good!

    One of the biggest perks of returning to school is cheeky chippy runs on the way home!

    I brought weighed out portions of pasta and rice away with us for exactly that reason.

    I should caveat that with the fact that I've eaten cake every day so expect to have put at least half a stone on.

    It is feasible to use unskilled workers to accomplish technically challenging tasks, if you have strong procedures in place and adequate supervision.

    Pub!

    Veggie burger!

    I'm knackered! Two days in and I've lost the will to live already!!

    Husband took it as an opportunity to have a meaty carb extravaganza! I might have to roll him home!

    Thanks to @littleme's inspiration yesterday we're having egg and chips baps today, with added bacon. Mrs p not back from work 'till late tonight so we're making the most of it.

    For desert raspberries from the garden with Chantilly cream.

    I'm also testing out my new corkscrew, so some wine will have to be consumed.
