The No Waste Tastes Great plan this bright and sunny Friday
The cucumber and grapes will be consumed over the weekend by the Kids. No problem.
Keeping my eye on the prize this week (aka – no waste) I soaked some dried beans overnight.
I’m planning a vegetarian chilli this evening with home-made tortillas. I’ve enjoyed my vegetarian week. So much so, I’m not going to eat meat next week either. As a fanatical meal planner this initially means some extra planning to build in suitable meals specifically for me to complement the family meals. But I’m up for the challenge.
I made a veggie chilli earlier in the week, and it was really good. Today’s chilli will be slightly different in that I’ll be using 2 peppers and no mushrooms. This meal will use up 1 onion, the 2 peppers and the half jar of sun-dried tomatoes.
The remaining onion and butternut squash have already met their fate.
No waste to report today! Hurrah!
It could have been a different outcome, however, as lurking in the fruit bowl I found this:
This had the potential to be waste. Or at least it had, if a banana and ginger loaf weren’t planned for this afternoon. Sorted.
Off to do my Aldi shop, with my new menu and list in hand.
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or have you been keeping your eye on the prize? Please share!
No Waste Tastes Great is bought to you (as always) with thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original inspiration.
I now update daily on Facebook with all sorts of randomness. This morning’s offering was a steaming monster-sized pancake on a High School Musical plate. Why not head on over and give me a like?
