That looks fab, Mis. Could just eat a slice....or two.

About a week ago - on impulse - I bought two duck breasts which were already past their best (but not past their best before date).

I planned to cook a meal for my daughter while we were decorating her new house but she declined. Two days later the breasts were still in my fridge and I couldn't foresee an oppotunity to cook them so I put them in the freezer.

Tonight I defrosted them, cooked them as suggested, saving the oil for the potatoes. I par-boiled the potatoes, put them and chopped onion into the duck fat in the pan while I continued cooking the duck breasts in the Halogen oven.

When I came to dish up, the potatoes were burnt and the onions incinerated. It wasn't quite the meal I had anticipated but the duck was delicious - and I have another one (cooked) in the fridge so I have another opportunity to make a slightly more tasty meal tomorrow.

Also a dish that suits the weather. :laughing:

I did prawns and mushrooms in a creamy tarragon sauce with just the merest hint of garlic on fresh egg tagliatelle.

Starving this evening after a long drive this morning, cleaning the car, some nasty dental treatment and fence painting, I put my hand in the fridge to retrieve the three frozen cooked chicken thighs I'd put in there to defrost...

Unfortunately they were RAW frozen chicken thighs so that delayed my dinner a bit.

However, I defrosted the thighs in the Microwave, cooked them for 15 minutes in my Halogen Oven, snd meanwhile fried up some mushrooms and onions and cooked some pasta. I put a sachet of Carbonara Sauce into the pan with the vegetables, stirred in the chicken and cooked pasta - result! The whole meal from fridge to table took about 20 minutes and was delicious and satisfying.

Now I'm going to bed ... still shattered.

Mac'n'cheese. It was bang on, especially after having been out for an hour long walk.

We had sausages and brilliant stir-fry last night.
I actually enjoyed it more than the lovely steak that I had on Saturday.
She's very good.

I had left-over liver and onions with mushrooms and tomatoes in gravy with boiled spuds and it was scrummy. Mind you, I was starving - only having had a banana for lunch.
