I'll start- pile of home made pakora, some chicken ones & some veg ones, with chilli sauce and yogurt dip. Served with salad. Not the healthiest by the kids have been asking for them for a week or two.

What's yours?

Spag bol -lazy Sunday usually have a roast blush

Veg chilli with cheesy nachos, sour cream and guacamole.

Rachel's Divine rice pudding with homemade raspberry jam for afters.

I forgot the parsnips! We always have parsnips grin.

FabBakerGirl Sun 16-Mar-14 18:18:40

I am probably going to have cheese on home made bread, toasted and crisps. Made by DH.

I made lunch - roast chicken, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, stuffing, sprouts, green beans and gravy. Mango, cherries, kiwi and a banana, walnut and choc chip muffin.

This is making me want figs! But with salad & Parma ham.

atthestrokeoftwelve, I can cook, but my dh loves it with a passion so we have gradually got into a set up where he does it all as he's so good at it. If he's away the kids generally get pasta.

Well Peggy, if you ever do, let me know how it turns out grin
Mine is looking v sad in the bottom of the bin right now

CheckpointCharlie Sun 16-Mar-14 16:55:11

Ta remus I might be and get some tomorrow!

I am being good and having Linda McCartney sausages with mash and veg, very SW friendly more so than the sausage sandwich earlier grin

I really, really want pakora now. sad

Homemade macaroni cheese tonight. We were going to have it last night, but DP had friends over so I did the roast then.

Charlie - the baby figs are fresh ones from Sainsbo's, but they are not as baby as the yummy Pizza Express ones, which I think are probably dried and then soaked in booze before cooking. The Pizza Express ones are with marscapone, I think - the only reason I ever go to PE tbh!

Roast chicken with zatar and lemon. Roast onions and peppers with oregano and garlic. When these come out of the oven I'm going to toss through some feta and mint.

To go with homemade flatbreads and a chilled glass of rose grin

Mmmmm sticky toffee pudding. I have never even attempted to make anything like that, I must try one day.

CointreauVersial Sun 16-Mar-14 16:15:05

Planning to have a Barbecue here! And it's March!! grin grin Sausages, burgers, marinated chicken and salad.

theDudesmummy Sun 16-Mar-14 16:12:01

DH making barbecue (braai in S African parlance). Chicken and sausages. Mieliepap (maize meal) with tomato and onion sauce. Mixed veg. I am working upstairs and he will call me when it is ready!!

I hope it goes better than my attempt at sticky toffee pudding this morning. That went in the bin sad
Like the sound of a sausage and cheese sandwich Checky

remus I'm not keen on deep fat frying either. I have a huge pot, 12" high, and put in 4" of oil to keep things safe.

I cook pakora in small batches amf transfer to a plate lined with kitchen roll.

Giraffeski Sun 16-Mar-14 16:02:09

Roast dinner at the ILs- so not sure which variety but just so glad I don't have to cook it myself. Currently suffering from horrendous morning sickness but FILs roast potatoes are to die for so hoping they feature as I think I could eat a massive plate full of them alone!

CheckpointCharlie Sun 16-Mar-14 15:57:58

Yum thurs
And where can you buy baby figs remus? I have had them in Pizza Express with crem fraiche (sp?) and they were lovely.

I am also slow roasting a shoulder of pork, with mustard and cider among other things. Going to 'pull' it later and have with tiger rolls, sweet potato wedges and coleslaw.

Oh I love vegetable pakora. Have never made it though, as I'm scared of deep fatfrying!

The carnivores have got some gammon and I've got nut cutlets, plus loads of veggies. Baby figs for pud, with natural yoghurt and honey.

thefirstmrsrochester Sun 16-Mar-14 15:49:17

Almost the same going down here mum
Lemon, garlic & rosemary roast chicken, crispy (crosses fingers) roasties, roast root veg, stuffing and gravy.

Drooling in anticipation.

Oh, and an amaretti and peach pudding that dd is planning on putting together.

atthestrokeoftwelve Sun 16-Mar-14 15:45:13

capitola- how do you get away with not cooking?

Eminybob Sun 16-Mar-14 15:44:53

Slow roasted pork shoulder with chilli and beer. Recipe courtesy of James Martin. DP's fave.

mumbaisapphirebluespruce Sun 16-Mar-14 15:43:52

Roast chicken with lemon, thyme and garlic. Roasted root veggies; beetroot, parsnips and carrots, possibly with a yoghurt dressing.
