It’s Friday Guys – Time for No Waste Tastes Great
(it’s an early one this morning as we are off to Conkers for the day)
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Spreads, cheese, garlic and yoghurt – all in date so no waste there!
Top Middle Shelf – 4 peppers, 2 onions, half of a very large courgette and half a bag of salad
Bottom Middle Shelf – Strawberries, red grapes and a cucumber
Bottom Shelf – Carrots and broccoli
Quite a few peppers, no?
I’m thinking vegetable lasagne for dinner with a side-salad? That’ll take care of 2 peppers, an onion, most of the courgette/zucchini and the bagged salad.
Any courgette not used, I’ll shred using my new food processor (which I love!) and make Zucchini Chocolate Bread (which I also love!).
The 2 remaining peppers will be chopped and frozen.
I purchased some strawberries, earlier this week, to make Naked Strawberry Muffins, but didn’t get round to it. They’re still fresh enough to rustle a batch up tomorrow and freeze any leftover berries for smoothies.
My cucumber and grapes are still good enough to eat, and will be used up next week. I’ve previously said there’d be no more cuke here to sabotage my food waste efforts. This one is homegrown and gifted to me. Not a piece of plastic wrap in sight. And guess what? It’s lasting well.
Finally the carrots, broccoli and the final onion. Time to make some slow-cooked soup, me thinks. I love spicy carrot soup, and the broccoli will go very nicely with some stilton.
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.
Don’t forget I update most days on Facebook.
