I really don't know what I am having tonight.

Today is a very rare day. I really don't know what I am having for tea tonight.
Due to being out last night I haven't made lunch for today or sorted out tonight yet, very strange. I have just eaten an M&S sandwich for lunch, no fun at all and not nearly as satisfying as the home made variety, and now I have to give tonight some serious thought.
I do have a plan to cook, there is a butternt squash in the fridge that is the size of a new born child and it needs using up. I am going to try some butternut squash muffins, I have friends and family here this weekend so there is no danger of them going to waste, but I haven't baked with squash before. I will let you know the recipie I decide on and how it goes.
I suppose I could also give some other butternut treats a go, how about gnochi or pasta, any ideas on this would be gratefully recieved.
Who knows what I will come up with by the time I get to cooking tonight.

The inaugural post...

So, the inaugural post of my blog. Where do we start?

It has been on mind for some time to share my thoughts about food and eating with the wider world, I do after all share it with those around me on a regular basis throughout the day. So, here I am sharing it with you now.

What are you having for tea tonight is a question that rings around every ofice I have worked in. It could come at 2.30, just after the lunch time feed, it could come at 4.30 as you start to think about popping to the supermarket on the way home, but it is always there on the tip of my tounge ready to open debate.

Often I have an answer, it is not unusual for me to have the weeks meals planned out before I leave for work on Monday morning, but there is always room for inspiration and additions to the menu.

The best conversations involve food. I love to cook, taking inspiration from a recipie, a TV show, a meal in a restaraunt,something that is sitting tantalisingly on the end of a supermarket shelf displaying it's for one week only offer, or the veg that turns up in the weekly organic box. So, from here on in I will share this with you.

I hope you enjoy.
