It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Except it isn’t Friday’s Fridge – it’s Thursday evening’s after dinner.
Why did I take the shot early this week?
Well, they say a picture speaks a thousand words.
This picture shouts, processed ready-meals aren’t popular at Chez Wright.
Despite my best attempts for us to eat processed foods for 3 days this week, it didn’t really happen.
Second-born-4-year-old point-blank refused to eat any of the meals. First-born-7-year-old partook in lasagne on Tuesday and then decided her Brother knew best.
Which mean’s I have leftover fresh pizza dough in the Fridge. I was at a loss as what to make for their dinner Wednesday. Thursday, I found some tinned mackerel and baked beans to accompany garlic bread (I’m not going to be awarded any Michelin Stars soon, am I?), as they snubbed the macaroni cheese and bacon concoction.
So, what’s the No Waste Tastes Great plan today then?
Top Shelf – Spreads, Cheese, Garlic – all in date. Fresh pizza dough.
Top Middle Shelf – 3 yoghurts, 2 mousse, grapes
Bottom Middle Shelf – 2 untouched ready meals (now frozen and will be taken to work by the Hubby for lunches at some point). Processed ham.
Bottom Shelf – Snubbed macaroni cheese that’s been packed up (only shown uncovered for photo) and sent to work with the Hubby for lunch.
Dinner tonight will be pizza for the Kids. The Hubby and I have tickets to see Plan B, and will grab a bite on the way. The grapes and ham will be used up over the weekend, as will the yoghurts.
Remember the monstrous bag of treats? How did they fare?
11 items left from a bag of 45. Are you shocked?
I’m not. It was expected. I know two things to be true. Variety increases consumption. As does having an abundance of an item – whatever that item may be, food or otherwise.
It’s back to basics at Chez Wright next week. Right back to basics.
I’ll be posting about my next experiment on Sunday. Let’s see how it compares, shall we? As a taster here’s a shot I just took. The question was raised on Tuesday - How would £50 of unprocessed groceries look?
There you go – £49.94 to be exact. But more on that Sunday. However, if you pop over to Facebook, I’ll introduce you to Lucy. Again, more on that Sunday.
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or is it nice and bare? Please share…
