Morning ladies!

It's Friday. End of the week. Dinner time. What are we having? I'm simply interested to know how many will cook and how many will succumb to the temptation of the delivered takeaway??

Me; I'm cooking.

I'm cooking - well easy cooking; bought falafel and I will do grilled veg, hummus and couscous too smile

FauxFox Fri 19-May-17 10:09:17

And maybe chocolate mousse if I can be bothered...

I'm cooking. Chilli wraps for us tonight.

Not cooking as such - more assembling - a mackerel salad. I'll steam a few new potatoes so I guess you can count that! Busy day at work, gym at lunchtime and theatre tonight so no time for anything more!

I'm cooking - moussaka and salad. Need a bit of comfort food in this grotty weather!

Were having chicken and chorizo chilli pasta...easy peasy

I'm cooking as DH cooked last night. It'll be a very easy fish, rice & veg.

I'm cooking easy chicken tikka masala; the chicken is already diced and the curry sauce is in the freezer. Just need to add them together and cook rice.
Takeaway round here is not great and very expensive, plus we have to go and collect it.

Me, got a curry going in the slow cooker

DeanKoontz Fri 19-May-17 10:44:22

I'm cooking. DS is coming home from a school holiday and taco's have been requested.

MusicToMyEars800 Fri 19-May-17 10:44:48

I am cooking, we will be having macaroni cheese, we had a dominos last night grin

Steak with garlic butter, samphire and spinach.

Trying to be healthy so that I can then justify half a bottle of wine and half a tub of ice cream smile

salmon and spinach pasta ! DP away on business , he hates fish so this is a good opportunity to enjoy without him complaining about the smell !

he usually cooks so this will be a novelty , 5 mins washing up vs 30 mins when he does the cooking

Cooking - we had pizza mid-week as I had a bad day and tomorrow we are out (And my dress is too tight, curses pizza). I will be going to the gym while the others eat and have mine after my spinning and pump classes.

OhHolyFuck Fri 19-May-17 11:19:58

I'm cooking, will be fajitas I think

Oogle Fri 19-May-17 11:20:16

Cooking lamb tagine because I'm at home with a poorly toddler, otherwise it would be freezer surprise.

Pantah630 Fri 19-May-17 11:22:15

I'm cooking, cashew chicken curry.

MrsD79 Fri 19-May-17 12:18:00

Wow that's so cool to see! I honestly thought most people get a takeout (well that's what I see on social media) & get drunk. I only tend to agree to takeout once a month & in my opinion the only 1 worth the calories is fish and chips. The rest are just nasty. I'm my own worst enemy, I have just marinated some ribs for the weekend and some wings for tonight (hubby's fave), and am now making pakore (bhajis) proper ones & home made samosas for the 1st time ever. I don't think I'll notice too many errors after a few drinks later 😕

gamerwidow Fri 19-May-17 14:17:51

Sausage casserole and mash here for me, DH, Dd and dm.
Saturday is takeaway day for us.

DeanKoontz Fri 19-May-17 14:32:47

If we have a takeaway, it tends to be mid-week. Takes the pressure off.

SayHelloDoris Fri 19-May-17 14:37:53

A takeaway listed on

oceanjanie Fri 19-May-17 14:39:10

Cooking - but not much. Home made pizza. Going to make extra dough and freeze some for another night as well.

Gooseygoosey12345 Fri 19-May-17 15:02:08

Cooking as well. Well OH will be as I feel rotten today. The joys of headaches and getting towards the end of pregnancy. No idea what he'll cook but as long as we're fed I don't care (also I have no leg to stand on about moaning about what he cooks as he's worked all day and I haven't)

NennyNooNoo Fri 19-May-17 16:27:03

Me. Smoked mackerel fish cakes with peas and chicken drumsticks and rice for the one who doesn't eat fish.

Never have proper takeaways. About once a month we have a supermarket 'takeaway'. We had a Tesco Chinese takeaway-in-a-box yesterday because I had an evening meeting to go to. It doesn't actually save that much time as I cooked extra chicken and veg to go with it.
