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.

Not good so far - OH has had to take over making the pasta -but then he is part Italian! Think I'll resort to the chilli I made earlier and practice some more!

Mmm, fish pie for us tonight I think. But with filo topping not mash as we have some left over. Coley fillets, a tin of sweetcorn, some boiled eggs and of course a little grated cheese. Mmmmm

Vegan pizza, with a new, experimental cheese substitute (which currently looks like it might need tweaking :( ) :lol:

I just made some 'baked' beans, though they weren't baked.

Enough for roughly the same as four cans'-worth:

500g cannelloni or haricot beans, soaked overnight then pressure cooked for three minutes (cover the beans with fresh water and a tablespoon of oil to prevent foaming).

Fried a couple of big onions and a good helping of garlic in a big pan with olive oil.

Threw in a tall jar of tomato passata, some fresh parsley, salt, pepper, sugar and cayenne pepper and let it bubble gently for 10 minutes then liquidised it and put in the hot beans.

Scrummy on baked spuds or brown toast with a few alfalfa sprouts.
