    That sounds really good and I too love a good glug of Worcester sauce in my cooking. Smile

    sunday roast, to celebrate....sunday lol beef and bacon joints, kids like bacon, wife likes beef, daddy likes both so its a win win for me, ive developed a taste for sprouts, betcha my mum would collapse if she heard that, cabbage, cauliflower AND cauliflower cheese lol 2 cauliflowers in one meal may sound a bit much but it was suprisingly good lol i got the cauli cheese in a seperate bowl and scofed the lot, followed by jelly and double cream

    weird but one of my cats who thinks shes a dog, will leave the meat for the cauliflower, whats that all about? my dog taught the two ragdolls to beg lol

    Would Sunday be Sunday without a Roast ?

    Well OK you don't have to have a roast the choice is yours ..........

    We enjoyed Pork with a little carrot, plenty of cabbage and our favourite buttery mashed swede with onion gravy. Tasted great - who says low carb is boring NEVER  lol!

    It Must Be Love !!

    Tonights dinner "was a disaster darling" as a certain Judge on Strictly might say.  lol!

    It should have been a lovely low carb burger with a cheese topping - served with brocolli cheese and mashed carrot and parsnip. The vegetables certainly passed the test but the burger was overcooked - and that's being polite ........EEK affraid

    I blame it on this Forum ....what with Eddie posting and me peeping in sunny  

    Oh well tomorrow night's dinner will certainly be better BUT what did you enjoy for your evening meal this evening?

    I managed not to overcook dinner tonight !

    Our chicken, was perfectly cooked, with a little red onion gravy. A few green beans, some cabbage and a spoonful or two of buttery mashed swede. Might have celeriac tomorrow for a change.

    One of the great pleasures in life for me is dining on the train. Not many lines you can do it on these days, but there are signs it's making a comeback. Anyway, I did it last night on the train from Paddington to Penzance, first time since I was diagnosed, although to be fair it was always a good low carb option - the alternative now is a Mexican on the concourse without too many nachos!

    I could have had smoked salmon as a starter but didn't. The three main options were fillet steak (always excellent), duck or mullet. I had the baked mullet although any would have been fine. Roast veg (courgettes and cauliflower cheese), just don't have the new potatoes. Nice regional cheese selection and coffee to finish, oh and I had a G&T and a glass of shiraz.

    5.6 when I started, still 5.6 2 hours later. And despite the stories about the British on trains, you always get into interesting conversations with interesting people on your table.

    Never dined on a train but I do love a train journey now, even short ones ( not the London Underground though lol ). I used to use the train all the time as a kid cos my parents never drove but then never got on a train for probably 25 years. Great war to travel and if you shop around on the internet you can get some bargains too !

    There is a special feel about travel on some trains, not the London Underground, but the trains that pass through the very scenic regions and how about if you're fortunate to have been on the Orient Express .... now that is a great way of travel and dinner on that must be almost magical  flower

    Sort of two days in one post here .....

    Last night it was a delicious beef casserole slowly cooked with green peppers, mushrooms and onions added plus a side dish of yes, you've guessed it ...... buttery mashed swede.

    Tonight it's chicken with cheese and bacon stuffed portabello mushrooms and broccoli cheese. What a delicious mix of good flavours sunny

    Bon Appetit

    Tonight's meal is a Mediterranean Style Chicken Bake. Chicken thighs and drumsticks in a tomato type sauce, used some canned tomatoes,  with yellow and red peppers, courgettes, mixed herbs the aroma as it wafts from the kitchen is lovely. Buttery mashed swede to go with it.

    Can't be bad ..... and England have just scored. YES !

    Sounds good to me! Smile With pork chops I like to brown them and then spread a little bit of french mustard on them and add some flaked Almonds and put them back under the grill to toast the Almonds and it really jazzes them up nicely. Smile

    I'm sure Eddie asked me What's For Dinner Tonight ....but it may have been on another thread. Question

    Anyway it's cod with leeks, red and yellow peppers and lovely buttery mashed swede. Cod was on a special offer at the local supermarket ....can't resist special deals Smile

    Hope you all enjoy your dinner whatever you're eating ?

    Sounds like whole real food to me Andy, but never forget. This sort of grub is not sustainable in the long term and scurvy and mange awaits you. Have you considered a diet based on pot noodles and junk ? covered by medication. This will ensure our good friends at big pharma maintain their profits, think of the nations economy you selfish person. affraid

    Made a shepherd's pie with leftover slow cooked brisket and its gravy. Topped with cauli mash made with butter, Emmental cheese and some reduced whipping cream. Served with Savoy cabbage and fat beans. Yummy.

    My missus attempted low carb shepherds pie the other day they had normal, it was like foul tasting baby food slop lol, and I had to eat it as she had made the effort lol the sloppy consistancy may have been due to me telling her now to drain the fat outta mince but the taste was all her Smile

    Shepherds ' pie is sloppy baby food though it does need to have some taste. I make mine either with mince ( and I don't drain fat as I buy the leanish one) with a tsp red currant jelly, squirt of sundried Tim purée and beef stock, Worcestershire sauce and some gravy granules to thicken , all cooked with a browned onion and a diced carrot.
    Tonight' s was leftover slow cooked brisket from Sunday - I kept the gravy back which had onions, swede and carrots in it and just shredded the meat into it then popped mash on top. Tbh I couldn't tell the difference between the cheesy cauli mash and normal mash by the time I'd added the cream, cheese and butter.
