Rainy and cool here again today, so more comfort food - shepherd's pie. And a cup of hot tea for me.

Made the chicken and dumplings today!  It came out really nice, with a nice rich broth that my DD complimented.  She was not a fan of the dumplings, but I thought they came out good.  Next time I think I'll try the stew part of the recipe with a slider-type dumpling instead.  My DD likes those, and they're nostalgic for me.

Glad you liked them! I've been thinking of experimenting with a noodle-style dumpling because those are pretty good too.

Has anyone made an easy good cream of mushroom soup that is comparable to canned? The catch is I need it to be gluten,dairy and soy free...I want to make Beef and Noodles and my recipe calls for a can of cream of mushroom...

Those 2 recipes look wonderful! Thank you. :)

 

Tonight I've made lamb koftas with yoghurt sauce. Going to serve them with basmati rice and veg from the garden. For dessert I've alread made a lovely creamy rice pudding from our Jersey cows' milk, and Aunty Lyra is also making bread and butter pudding with sultanas of which I've nabbed a few. ;-)

Tonight it's beef and Guinness stew with plenty of horseradish dumplings. You can never have enough dumplings. :yum And this, aromatic pomegranate jelly. Very pretty on the plate.

Pulled pork pizza. (We like a thin crispy crust. I use up leftover pulled pork, with extra barbecue sauce as the pizza sauce, topped with sharp white cheddar, sliced jalapeños, and chopped green onion. Then plain goat yoghurt drizzled overtop.)

We have left over broc and cheese casserole for me and left over spaghetti and noodles for them. Tomorrow will be the same. Planning chicken and dressing for Sunday and tacos for Cinco de Mayo Monday. I'm dull, I know. I was planning to have my test results from the dr this coming Monday, but my allergy tests aren't in yet and they are vital to his recommendations. SO I get to wait till the 12th. Grr

We didn't visit McD's after all because I'm unwell. Instead, Aunty made us an Italian chicken dinner with a delicious raspberry pannacotta dessert. Scrummy!

Instead of pigging tonight's party food, I found some lovely oak smoked salmon in the fridge and made several wholewheat sammiches with it, and poured nice big glass of chilled Jersey milk. Juni did well. Under my sister Iona's care she enjoyed the pick of the party's ace canapes while I turned a blind eye. It's great that my little sweetiepie enjoys such food because kids can be notoriously picky. Must have been Iona's good guidance then.

Husband is working a night shift tonight, so I'm taking the opportunity to make something he doesn't entirely care for - home made bean and bacon soup. With a loaf of half-home made bread.

Okay, I think we have a plan shaping up for the week.

 

Monday - Pork carnitas with corn tortillas and a salad

Tuesday - Harvest pork stew with butternut squash and apple

Wednesday - Tofu/broccoli stir-fry

Thursday - Homemade tuna noodle casserole with a salad

 

We'll see after that...

Across the pond here, it's bank holiday weekend and all the family are gathering. Lunch is going to be a buffet, so all the kids will be buzzing around. As for dinner, probably meze, but we'll see.
