I’m just back from the school run – we biked today all together for the first time! Yay!
Only one minor mishap and fortunately it happened once the kids were safely deposited in class. I shut my finger in the bike lock. Not surprising, more haste less speed eh? Anyhow…
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Today we have (drum roll)…. ta da da…
- 2 Eggs
- A very large homegrown cucumber
- 4 Carrots
- 3kg (approx. 6lb) of homegrown cherry tomatoes
There is also a tub of olive oil spread, some margarine for baking, a yogurt and some garlic cloves… all of which are in date and have many days left to use up.
First born is having a play-date here after school, pancakes have been requested, that’ll use up the eggs. Sorted. And it looks like lots of cucumber sandwiches next week! Lots and lots!
The carrots and tomatoes are about to be acquainted with my slow cookers.
The carrots were purchased to make my favourite soup
for dinner last night, but after another donation of toms earlier in the week they were relegated. After all I had to make some more of my competition soup
Thanks to all those that voted for me it is appreciated, the competition for this month has finished and the judges are deciding which they like best. I’m definitely submitting a soup for the next month as it is in support of one of one of the most worthwhile charities in the UK – the RNLI
It should make about 24 servings I would imagine – to be frozen. One batch is being gifted back to running_mum who donated the toms.
Those who follow No Waste Tastes Great
know that Friday Night is Date Night at Chez Wright
. I conceded last Friday and ordered a takeaway on the Hubby’s request. We had Chinese and watched Fight Club
(one of my all time favourites). However £12 lighter in the wallet and a good bout of indigestion means that this week I am cooking. It’s no hassle to make a slow cooked curry in Lil’ Bill
(my other standard non-vegetarian slow cooker).

So that’s the plan. I have pilau rice and naan bread already, so I will pick up some fresh free range chicken at lunchtime and chuck it all in! No wine tonight though, just 4 weeks till the half marathon and the long weekend run is now up to 9 or 10 miles (I did 16 last week with a 5 hour break between the first 8 and second 8). Not really possible to do it even with the slightest thick head – well it is doable but why make life hard for yourself?
How’s your Friday Fridge looking? Are we all clean and clear, or cluttered and packed to the brim?
