Queen your pie sounds good!

Brillo do you mind** sharing your tofu stir fry recipe? The cucumber bit sounds very tasty.

IHaveBrilloHair Fri 14-Oct-16 16:51:57

Erm, I'll be making it up as I go along, I'll share what I did afterwards though!

I've been ill and all I really want is comfort food.

Need to do an order but am thinking along the lines of:

today - out for curry
tomorrow - jacket potatoes, cauliflower cheese
Sunday - I really fancy a cheat's Sunday dinner, with nut cutlet for me and probably chicken thighs for the carnivores
Monday - veggie shepherds pie
Tuesday - lentil and vege soup and nice bread
Weds - some sort of Thai curry or laksa with noodles
Thurs - No idea!
