It's been so action packed that a quiet day seems out of place. I'm full of cold with a rotten sore throat so I have done nothing significant.
One thing I did do was make shepherd's pie with turkey mince. I like the turkey mince because it is low fat, high protein and very inexpensive. On the other hand, I suspect what I save on mince I spend on stock cubes. Actually it only wanted a stock cube and a pinch of sage (with the usual carrot, onion and a few spare mushrooms), and bear and DH loved it. I will see how it goes. For comparison, the turkey mince was £2 for 500g and the lean beef mince was £4 for 500g, so I think it's worth experimenting.
I've actually paid out for a frozen shoulder of lamb joint for Easter Sunday. I am not keen on lamb but bear and DH adore it and it's traditional - and hideously expensive. Poor DH is feeling very poorly with the cold so the least I can do is cook the lamb slowly in the slow cooker wrapped in foil with rosemary and garlic.
