It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Spreads, Cheese and Garlic
Top Middle Shelf – Grapes and Yoghurt
Bottom Middle Shelf – Slow-Cooked Ham, 6 Mushrooms, 1/2 Aubergine/Eggplant, 2 Peppers and 2 Tomatoes
Bottom Shelf – Carrots, Onion and a Green Chilli
Door – Milk, Soya Milk, OJ and 2 Eggs
A little fuller this week, I’m sure you’ll agree?
But as always, there is a plan.
The spreads, garlic and cheeses are all still full of life – so no issue with the top-shelf then. Ditto with regard grapes and yoghurt. They’ll get used up during next week.
The slow-cooked ham will accompany noodles and veggies for the Kids dinner. They currently like using chopsticks, and the meal will lend itself nicely to that method of eating!
The veggies sitting next to the ham shout “lasagne” to me. I’ll adapt this recipe to use what I have for the Hubby and my dinner tonight. The Kids aren’t keen on vegetable lasagne, hence the two dishes being prepared. Any leftover lasagne will do for lunch tomorrow also.
Carrots, onion and a green chilli will make a lovely slow-cooked spicy soup. Easy to freeze for lunches next week.
That just leaves the door. Well, I have 12 cupcakes to make for a princess party tomorrow, so that’s the eggs dealt with. The milk and OJ will be used up as and when. As for the soya-milk, there’s just enough left for a fruit and protein smoothie tomorrow morning after my run.
Done and dusted?
I have waste.
Firstly – chopped sausage. Now, I’m not 100% that this isn’t edible, but I am fanatical about food hygiene, particularly with pork. It’s being disposed of. It’s leftover plate-waste (which I’m also cautious about) from a few days ago when my 4-year-old’s appetite wasn’t quite as expected.
Secondly – red grapes. These babies have been hanging around a while. Probably 3 weeks. Apart from looking a bit mushy and potentially mouldy. They have no taste. Time to go.
Thirdly – look what followed my daughter home from her dance-presentation last Friday night.
I know a perfect way to dispose of this. Down the toilet. Great for cleaning loo’s. Which makes you wonder what it does to the insides of your stomach really doesn’t it? But there we go…
So what does sausage, grapes and Pepsi all have in common? All waste for me this week. Not good.
p.s anyone notice the amount of plastic going on here? desperately looking to replace the pyrex I’ve broken – any suggestions on where to get it from?
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or is it nice and bare? Please share…
No Waste Tastes Great is bought to you (as always) with thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original inspiration.

Thought I’d leave you with a clip of what I’m listening to at the moment… I watched a fantastic ballroom sequence to this song last Friday and tracked it down (Kings Of Leon have such a distinctive sound it wasn’t too difficult!)
