It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
It’s Friday the 13th – will it be unlucky for me and a horror story in the fridge?
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
This is good.
Top Shelf – Spread, cheese, garlic and one chocolate mousse (all in date)
Top Middle Shelf – Grapes (with a couple of days of life still in them)
Bottom Shelf – Home-made chutney and pickled beetroot
Door – Milk, OJ and one egg
Dan will have a hard-boiled egg and soldiers with grapes and chocolate mousse to follow, for lunch. I’ll have cheese, crackers, chutney and grapes.
No waste for us at Chez Wright today!
Normally if there’s no waste then the Hubby and I have been partaking in a takeaway. However after tidying my cupboards this week I discovered I have chick peas and coconut milk to hand. As we have been having a slow-cooked curry instead of a takeaway of late, I’m going to rustle up a vegetarian curry (with home-made indian flatbread) and add the sweet potatoes I have.
The curry will use 2 potatoes and also 1 of the onions, and I’ll make soup with the other 2 potatoes (using the recipe I posted on Facebook before Christmas). This soup will also use up a second onion. The other 2 onions I am going to chop and freeze. The 2 bagels I will make pizza for the kids by topping them with tomato puree and grated cheddar cheese. They’ll get a few frozen veggies on the side.
All of the items could have been used up over the weekend. But I’m not shopping today as usual. It’s been a busy couple of days. Last night saw me cleaning the kitchen until midnight after finishing off a Birthday cake I made as a favour for a friend.
I’ve also been for a run this morning, which I don’t normally do on a Friday, but if you are following on Facebook you will know I planned on running daily this week to get back in the habit. Shopping will wait until tomorrow!
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday the 13th? Is it a Nightmare on your street or an absolute dream? Please share!
(I’ll be posting the coconut, chickpeas and sweet potato curry recipe over on Facebook later today)
