Thought I would try the local Indian takeaway so having some kind of prawn curry and rice with naan. It's quite tasty.

I was busy today and tried three new recipes!

One was rotisserie style chicken cooked in the slow cooker (never thought of cooking a whole chicken before), cauliflower gratin (aka cauliflower cheese - making the cheese sauce from scratch which I had never done before) and for dessert Berry Meringue smash - white chocolate, broken up meringue, cream and berries. Yum!

And the best part is that cooking all that was nowhere near as stressful as I find cooking for guests!

A new discovery today at Costco. Seafood stuffed portobello mushrooms. Costco sized of course ;)

Very rich though, I will be popping a heartburn pill shortly :(
At home with a good book and the cat...

Sounds delicious though!

Mine was shepherd's pie with peas and sweetcorn.
