I bet Nigella doesn't have this problem

I'd planned to do ratatouille and pasta for dinner but my aubergine had gone soggy (and we all know there's nothing worse than a soggy aubergine) so I offered Husband a choice from butternut squash soup, macaroni cheese and beans on toast. He grumbled that it wasn't proper food.
'It is. It's yummy,' I said.
'It's all stuff you like,' he said.
'It's all stuff I have the ingredients for.'
'Yes, it's all stuff you like.'

What he means, of course, is that it doesn't contain meat.

Husband calls any meal without potatoes a picnic , and having fish instead of meat means it's a snack .I learnt to ignore this a long time ago .
All your options sounded delicious ! In fact , butternut soup is sounding more appealing by the minute .....

It's a snack for tea tonight then, sonata, as we have salmon.
