It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Quite a sparse fridge, apart from the top shelf. There is still a lot of cooking margarine to use up. No pressure – as it has plenty of life left in it yet. But it did remind me I’d promised a post on piping/frosting *perfect cupcakes.
Luckily my dear friend had, the night before, gifted me my belated birthday present. It included some super-cute cupcakes cases. Giving me every excuse to rustle up 6. I did have to beg an egg off my very kind neighbour as the basket was bare.
There’ll be a decorating post on Sunday for those who are waiting for it!
Top middle shelf is holding some tuna and cucumber as well as the Kids’ chocolate mousse. All these items will be used up as part of a ‘choosing tea’ after school, along with cheese, crackers, fruit and bread sticks.
Bottom shelf is dinner for the hubby and I. There are 2 small beef steaks left over from dinner last night (they are wrapped – you can’t tell from the photo!). They’ll be cubed and tossed in the slow-cooker with a can of chopped tomatoes,chopped onion and some rogan-josh paste, for a really simple slow-cooked curry.
So far so good, no food waste to speak of.
I did make a save yesterday.
Keeping my eye on the prize I froze some remaining fresh strawberries, after I’d blended my mid-morning snack.
A whey protein smoothie.
The only dilemma is what to do with the sour cream? It’s the ole use-by-date quandary once more.
It’s been open about 3 weeks. It states on the bottle “use within 14 days”.
Dairy products get me every time with this. I’m always unsure what to do.
What would you do?
