Re: What I ate for dinner last night.

I love my kebabs with garlic sauce and lots of salad, don't like the chilli sauce at all.  Smiley

Re: What I ate for dinner last night.

Tonight more or less home made curry - nice and warm
Actually a jar of Lloyd Grossman Balti curry mix plus 3 of my home grown jalapeño peppers chopped, two chicken breasts and a couple of large handfuls of home grown chopped bell peppers (does three portions) with basmati rice and home made green tomato chutney on the side
Lovely
and to finish off - a nice glass or two of McGuigan Shiraz Viognier

Re: What I ate for dinner last night.

Did someone mention Curry ? My signature dish  Grin
It has even been features on the local BBC morning show and if word gets out I'm having a curry night, I get messages from various people asking to save some onion bhajis
A lot of it is easier to make than you'd think. We don't really do take aways these days, it's a lot cheaper to make your own Chinese / Curry / Pizza / Fish & Chips etc.

Re: What I ate for dinner last night.

@ picbits...They look absolutely scrumptious, it's been quite a while since I had a good Indian curry and onion bhaji's.
I don't have any ingredients in to attempt making my own, but I just might order one from a take away tonight.

Re: What I ate for dinner last night.

Chicken Kebabs in homemade pitta bread ?
Crispy battered chicken with Kung Po sauce and egg fried rice ?
Pizza and doughballs ?
This is what happens when you give up full time work to look after the kiddie and need to save money by making your own food rather than buying takeaways  Grin

@ picbits...Thanks for the link, bookmarked it in my recipes folder.  Smiley
They look really scrummy, I'm starving now.  Grin
I used to really enjoy cooking, just got a bit lazy recently, I need to start cooking properly again, as you say it's cheaper and healthier.

Re: What I ate for dinner last night.

We regularly have the parents and sister over for family meals and it's easy to cook on a budget.
Those pizzas above have a cost price of around £12 (I make my own dough) including a tray of dough balls and garlic butter dip - comfortably serves 8 people.
I can do a curry night for a similar price and Kung Po chicken and prawns for 8 comes in at a tenner.
The only problem is that when the family eat out, they compare what they are getting to my cooking ....... it doesn't always end well  Grin

Re: What I ate for dinner last night.

We also cook on a budget Embarrassed
"poached" hot-smoked trout, (home made) pasta and mangetout, in light garlic, chives and olive oil with green salad with blackberry vinegar dressing, followed by gooseberry sorbet.
Wine was a bottle of 'Strawberry Champagne' (sparkling wine - we had a glut of strawberries this year).
