    I've only seen cheese curds in Canada tbh, we used a block of mozzarella (rather than buffalo) cut into big chunks and I used onion gravy with tomato sauce, black pepper and garlic added (this was our just in from the pub food so we used micro chips and instant gravy lol!), twas well yum though

    We're having home made gorgonzola and grape flatbreads, with home made humus and veggies for lunch, nom!

    Really want to make pumpkin soup this autumn since I missed out on pumpkin season last year (and every other year lol), had an ace recipe I used about 5 years or more ago in my first year which made loads of amazing soup and of course have no idea where I found it. I don't remember whether it had other roasted vegetables in as well as roasted pumpkin :/. Anyone got any delicious recipes they could share? ^^

    I'm so stuck for things to cook! I've been living out for about a month now, sharing with four people. Our kitchen is pretty small so I don't have much space to keep food etc.

    For the past few weeks I've cooked something and eaten the leftovers the next day, generally chicken in a tomato and herb sauce with peas with pasta or rice, bolognaise, or just plain tomato pasta. Other times I'll eat a precooked Spanish omelette or a salad with tuna or just a toastie.

    Completely out of ideas!! Can anyone recommend simple, cheap dishes, that can b prepared using just a stove top (we have no oven). Also, Redraven, was looking back at this thread and saw you made a yum looking stir fry a few pages back. Any chance you could tell me how you made it?

    Get a wok, you can do loads in it and I also recommend a slow cooker then you can do stews/casseroles/chilli/joints easily.

    As for stir fry you can just get sauce/noodles/bag of stir fry veg, fry off whatever meat you want if any and then add everything else and cook down. I tend to use chicken, brown it off, add a little big of veg stock, chinese 5-spice powder, garlic, chilli, soy and stir up, then add whatever veggies I have (peppers, beansprouts, mange tout, peas, mushrooms, spring onions etc) cook it down, add noodles or rice and it's done.

    What about sausage casserole, chilli, beef stew, creamy pastas made with philly or philly sauces, chorizo instead of chicken in your tomato pasta, bacon and pea rice, meatballs, home made pizzas done on tortillas or pre made pizza bases or make your own, gnocci instead of pasta (it's well cheap). Chunky soups which you can have a salad/sandwich/toastie with. Cottage pie, fish pie, quiche. All dead easy to make!

    Dunno, they're just ideas off the top of my head.

    Do you have freezer space? When I was living on my own I'd make up batches of food and freeze portions. It's good for using jars of "cheat sauce" for curries or whatever that usually serve 4-6, or your pot of pasta sauce if you make too much.
    My cooking repertoire is pretty limited. I can do stir fries, fajitas, chilli, and my dad's all-time favourite; Student Pasta Surprise lol.
    I can also do French Toast aka Eggy Bread.

    For stir fry I just slice up a load of veg (my staple veg diet includes peppers, onions, mushrooms, and spring onions) and maybe a chicken breast - fry off the meat first before adding the veg - then throw it all around in our giant frying pan with a bit of oil and some spices, or thai curry paste. Serve with rice or noodles.

    (edit) adding Philly to pasta sauce is frickin wonderful btw, thanks for that tip Hazel

    Risotto, paella? Both super cheap and quick. For meat slow cookers are brilliant. There's a lot of variations of pasta dishes you could try also, cheese/white sauces, chicken and broccoli, tomato and marscapone, pesto etc, soups-so many you could make now with winter veg, and they'd be cheap!
    For pastry and that having no oven must be a real bummer!

    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.
