What are we all having for dinner?

You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

The OH visiting family in Holland, so left me charge, forgot the mushrooms in the cellar, :oops: went into get a bottle "what else"and found 4 large mushrooms trying to escape the box; I captured them and sentenced them to Pan with a few Rashers of bacon and an egg or even two.
Will go well with the bottle :thumbright:

As the weather here has reverted to sub-arctic with 60mph+ winds (the polytunnel is standing up to the onslaught well, thus far :cheers: ) the planned roast chicken has changed to chicken and barley casserole.

Edit: The above casserole was unbelievably good with enough leftovers for tonight :cheers:

Oh and the wind is starting to subside :iconbiggrin:

Fried (yesterdays leftover) potatoes; nice homegrown cabbage; and a piece of pheasant which I cooked and froze some days ago. Right now we get pheasants every week from a shoot across the road - yum!
