    I do like the malbec. A lot of them seem to be very heavy on the sulphates though and I think I'm allergic. No runny nose so far though!

    If you mean the Argentinian Malbec then yes, that's very pleasant and well worth the £5.50 or so it costs. My rule of thumb with Aldi is anything between £5.50 and £7.50 a bottle is usually well worth the money.

    Had no intention of being Nigella or Delia tonight. Have cooked almost every day this last week.
    So we've had a Dominos pizza.
    Tomorrow is a roast chicken, roast potatoes, mash potatoes, yorkie puds and loads of gravy.
    Nowt coloured, ie veg, he'll think i'm trying poison him.

    Maybe try hot and sour soup especially
    now the temperature is dropping a bit.
    Sweet and sour as long as you ask for Cantonese style not the horrible balls with a pot of sauce.
    Singapore vermicelli is very good and depending on the chef that night can either be spicy or blow your mouth off spicy.
    To be honest if you can have two or three main dishes mix it up each time. You might then find something you like which you wouldn’t ordinarily try. A couple of dishes we tried and have been added to our list are beef with seasonal vegetables (not spicy or garlicky but nice) and the prawns in garlic butter sauce (what it says on the tin ... lol).

    Awww, you've listed our favourites already, I was hoping for a secret new dish that I didn't know about.... My search will continue.

    Have you ever had Yuk Sung? That is a good dish, more of a starter than main. Minced pork served with lettuce leaves so you make a wrap. In Hong Kong it was minced pigeon but doubt they would be able to serve that here.

    Salt and pepper tofu is great as well. It has fresh chilli in it as well and can come out a bit spicy. Good for any vegetarians as well.

    I’ll keep thinking.

    Chicken, Leek and Bacon Pie tonight, a cheat one though, with sliced potatoes as the topping, not pastry.

    Pie & mash!

    I've not been shopping this weekend - the freezer and fridge binge continues!

    Last night I had too many ciders and ate a pizza at 10pm ( so technically two dinners! )

    BUT it was in the freezer and needed eating so doesn't matter!

    Think we had that in the week. A nice drop if it was the same one.

    A sandwich tonight probably.

    Went to The Seven Stars for a roast beef lunch and even though we had no starter or pudding we’re still quite full.
    It was absolutely gorgeous. Felt completely safe too.

    I'm ashamed to admit that the carer ordered a McDonald's delivery for tea, I don't think I will recover from the horror.

    We had pan fried chicken and mushrooms in a tomato based sauce served with rice (sauce was from a jar).
