No Waste Tastes Great (3 February 2012) – The Plan
It’s the Hubby’s Birthday tomorrow. The butter-cream will be used alongside the eggs and other butter to make a small birthday cake. Family are joining us for lunch tomorrow so the cheeses and grapes will be used up as part of a ‘choosing lunch’, as the Kids like to call it.
The remaining egg will be used to make pancakes tonight for the Kid’s dinner. First-born has a hot meal at school today, and Second-born and I are heading off shortly to Cannock Chase Forest to get Daddy an OS Map for his Birthday present (last of the big spenders eh?). We are going to pop into the Golden Arches on the way – well… it’s been a while!
The broccoli will be used up as part of a slow-cooked soup. The beetroot, milk and OJ are all in date.
See below the decoupage box (not quite finished) that will house the OS map plus a mountain biking magazine. No Waste Looks Great! (Old sailing mag plus a welly box)
As Friday Night is Curry Night at Chez Wright, the toms, mushrooms and peppers will be popped into Lil’ Bill (my slow-cooker), I think it’ll be balti tonight. I am hoping to make this recipe recommended by Claire one week… I just need to grab some peanut butter.
No waste for us this week. Next week’s menu has been planned and is already on the menu-board.
The week’s meals all come to under £1 per person (apart from the roast) – a weekly menu plan to make any SuperScrimper proud!
Just about to grab my hat and gloves and head on over to Aldi to do my grocery shop…
How’s your Fridge looking this chilly Friday? Crisp and clear, or crowded and congested? Please share!
No Waste Tastes Great is bought to you (as always) with thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original inspiration.
Don’t forget I am now updating daily on Facebook – the Birthday Cake no doubt will make an appearance later today…
