I mixed some Spag Bol with rice and wrapped it into little Silver beet parcels, covered with diced toms and topped with white sauce. Cooked long and slow in oven.  Served with mashed potatoes.   Very nice.

I made a thick Borscht yesterday to have for dinner tonight. We had it with cheese toasties.

Some great cooking in here. 
Cookie are the pies you are making from the WW book?  I'm embarrassed to say I haven't done anything more that flick through the book yet. 
I used to make some nice ones last winter for the freezer, I really must start again.  ???

Crumbed chicken with potato bake, steamed broccolini, carrots & beans.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Todayís cooking was Saganaki prawns from Skinnymixers new book). 
Making ahead of time I cooked the sauce (which was really delicious).  Did my usual browning of onions in the High Heat collection then carried on with the recipe.  I then weighed that and divided into 2 lots.

Once the prawns were peeled, washed etc, I counted and divided into 2 lots.  All I had to do for me was put a thin layer of cooked brown rice on the base of a small baking dish, add one lot of the combined sauce and prawns then  put the dish in my airfryer and bake for about 10-12 mins then sprinkled with Greek feta and baked another 5 mins or so until prawns were fully cooked and it was hot.  Was so delicious, I loved every mouthful.  Iíll have the other serve tomorrow with some salad greens and cherry toms.

Iíll do the same with the other lot of rice, sauce and prawns which is for DH when he gets home tonight, though heíll have it all as one serve instead of splitting it into 2.  I know heíll really love this too.

I had some over ripe pears that needed using up so I did a search on cookidoo and found a Ďpear & peach crumbleí recipe that I had everything in for.  I reduced the sugar a bit and as my pears were quite ripe, when they had cooked down it made the sauce quite liquidy.  The peaches were okay though.  I didnít worry about that at this stage I just poured it all into a baking dish.  Covered the top with half the crumble (vacuumed packed the rest and put in the freezer to use another day) and baked for about 30 mins. The liquid evaporated and I was left with a lovely dessert.  Will be made again.

I didnít get around to the tahini biscuits but Iím hopeful to do them tomorrow when I have more time.

Julie, that does look and sound tasty.
Last night I cooked the easiest and tastiest meal. An Alison Roman recipe, sausages with capsicum peppers and onion. All cooked in one pan and served with mashed potato.  We are very fussy about our sausages.  These were delivered with the order from the local small goods order. They were very good.  I can now eat a little onion so really enjoyed this dish.
Chow Mein tonight so I can use the left overs for Spring Rolls tomorrow.

We don't have sausages that often but I always buy them from the same butchery.
Tonight is pizza.
