Tonight was our regular Union meeting so in the best Socialist tradition we were treated to beer and sandwiches. Mmmm.

Turned down the option of two cheap lamb hearts, because the faff of a really hearty casserole requires four to justify.

I settled, sluttishly, for some Asda pre-formed, Italian-style meat-balls. I am, however, doing a nice long-cooked sauce, using some cherry tomatoes. I buy these a lot, often at a knock-down price; a few get used as a garnish but the rest linger till one gets a fur coat and the others copy. The colder spell seems to have kept them from this.

To drink, there will be a Cabernet Plonkignon from Lidl: Sarfefrikin, bottled in Germany and change from £3. What could possibly be wrong with that? :party:

Plenty - report back when you've tried it.

One of my favourite teas: potato wedges with fried eggs, sloppy peas and ketchup.

Cheese pie. With ketchup.

(And no, there is no pastry involved). :)

I don't know what that is but it's not a pie. I had a steak & stilton pie, pastry & everything, from the farmers market pieman. Now that's a pie.

I'm not sure about that, but I could give you the recipe! The trick is to fry the onions first, gives it a nicer flavour.
Yes please! It has all the things I like.

Onions're brilliant. I'm sure I was healthier when I ate them every day! Often raw on bread and cheese.

OK, this isn't out of a book, this is me improvising:

Heat up a little olive oil in a pot, add chopped raw onions (or onion rings, if you desire), fry until nice and brown, add some chopped garlic, fry a bit more, then add a tin of tomatoes and a tin of lentils, stir, add some vegetable stock (a couple of teaspoons should do it), a few leaves of basil (unless you don't like basil), some pepper and continue heating until it starts to bubble. Once it's hot enough, add the sauce to your pasta (I stir it in, but you don't need to), and if you like cheese, you can grate some on top, but it's not essential.

Et voila, a simple pasta sauce. Just call me Delia.

Thanks, Delia.

Some 'pies' are topped with potatoes.
I was really hoping someone else might know the term 'cheese pie'... it's what me mam used...

... to describe mashed potatoes with cheese mixed in. :)

I do that sometimes ( thought it was my invention ! )
Well mam was making it for us since the 80s (and likely further back than that, as she knew of the recipe) so unless you invented it before then... :D

I've always boiled/steamed onions and spuds together. Makes a lovely mash which is good as it is, or in bubble'n'squeak, or with grated cheese mixed in. You can use the water as stock. Or just drink it, as is traditionally done in working class households.

You can't beat a meal with fresh vegetables. Techy is having a lamb casserole for tea. You're only s'posed to put carrots and onions in but it also has peas, long beans, sweetcorn etc. I've now talked myself into making him onion mash to go with it.

Last night, some wonderful Thai food. Seafood with betel leaf, chicken with a ground cashew and chili sauce, minced prawn and crab on sugarcane sticks and fried chicken wings that had been marinated in a sweetened fish sauce. All very delicious.
Just now, a large bowl of a rather good granola.
