    Lamb tagine. Specifically this recipe. I've made it several times, it's a winner.

    Looks amazing until I got to the apricots, dates and sultanas bit. I know why they add them but thr thought of that makes me feel ill.

    Fair enough, I go easy on those bits anyway, I just chuck in a few dates. Love a meat / fruit combo personally but my gf isn’t a huge fan

    Chicken handi curry. Then a mighty lamb shank tomorrow. Honestly, it's as big as my head.

    Could you combine the two and give your big shank a handi?

    Flat Iron Steak with pepper cream sauce, fries and green beans.
    All great except for the fries, tried frozen oven ones and they are rubbish. Back to peeling for me!

    @Armoured_Bear Have you tried spraying oil on frozen fries? I tend to use chilli or garlic Fry Light on frozen chips, fried, hash browns, or waffles. Gives them a crispier outer coating whilst keeping them fluffier internally. Also can add a bit of much needed flavour to some.

    I hope that whatever it was, it was hand breaded.

    My roast sprouts, broccoli, spinach and halloumi tray bake, with either a honey/almond/cashew or a rose harissa glaze (made 2 trays) went down well with the family last night.
    Not sure if I can cut my way through the green tinted haze to go and make a cuppa until I've opened a few windows this morning, mind.

    Cottage pie, but roast potatoes instead of mashed potatoes and it works really well.

    So, I’d planned a nice Quorn chicken Korma for tea tonight but have failed to find any Quorn chicken. Have red lentils and some sweet potato which I thought would make an amazing alternative but not 100% sure how best to prepare... Pre-boil or soak the lentils then roast the sweet potato in small chunks?

    Any pointers would be much appreciated - more so now than ever. Easy healthy meal tips will be invaluable at the moment.

    You don't need to pre-soak red lentils. You do need to give them a wash first but pre-soaking isn't necessary.

    Funnily enough I'm going to make a massive vat of red lentil dhal today.

    Whatever you do to the sweet potatoes, they're going to go a bit mushy. However if I were adding sweet potatoes to my dhal then roasting them first sounds like a good idea. I would maybe glaze them with a bit of oil mixed with lime chutney or pickle. I would cook them fully in the oven, and add them to the curry only at serving time.

    I made a stash of soups last night. Split peas (250g), soaked overnight, rinsed, then fry a chopped onion and add the peas and 1.5L of stock (veg/chicken), 3 chopped carrots, 1 chopped sweet potato and simmered for 20 mins until veg is soft. Then blend. Season accordingly. I added a bag of spinach at the end.

    Made 7 bowls worth.

    Down to my last cat now and then it's on to the rats. Might treat myself and have some grass trimmings with it but they also double up as loo roll so I dont want to go too far.
