It ain’t ‘arf ‘ot

Had a bit of a disaster in the meal department today, and hope it was me and not my cooker.
This was Hubby’s dinner today. Looks nice doesn’t it.
Fish, wedges, green beans, carrots and broccoli, all done the way I usually do, with the fish and wedges cooking for thirty minutes in the oven, the same length of time it takes to cook my tomato pasta dish (I added peppers today) to go with the same veg.

For some reason, the green beans and broccoli didn’t fully cook so were squeaky, and although Hubby’s fish was OK, his wedges were not as nice as usual, my theory being because they were quite big this time and I should have cooked them longer. My bake was lovely though.

For our meal tonight, Hubby had a corned beef, pickle and onion sandwich and I had an egg and beetroot salad as neither required cooking! I bought a bag of mixed lettuce for a change yesterday and although it looks pretty, lettuce is lettuce and boring.
I have no idea what I’m going to cook tomorrow and have my weigh in at 5.30.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Veggies can be tricky. Sometimes we get them perfect, other times a bit over or under done. And we don’t change a darn thing about the length of time we cook them, nor the amount of water we add; I’m of the opinion that ‘chewy’ (squeaky) veggies which are under done are maybe a bit older than advertised and therefore a bit tough, even if cooked perfectly. Both you and your hubby’s dinners looked delicious btw.

    • You could be right about the age of the veg Melanie. Some of the beans looked a little ‘limp’ when I prepared them and the broccoli was frozen.
      Foody picture post tomorrow after weigh in. Had some nice stuff this week!
      Are you doing better today?
