It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great…
Ready to do a double take?
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
The inventory? Here goes…
Cheeses, Actimel probiotic drink, Yogurt, Olive oil spread, Grapes, Strawbs, Toms, Houmous, Peppers, Cuke, OJ, Pizza (shop bought!), Ham, Natural yogurt, Milk, Pesto, Olives, Buttercream, Limes and White wine.
Not my fridge’s normal Friday look.
This is due to 3 things;
a) I’m ill. Okay, so not quite as under the weather as I was. But still not firing on all four cylinders.
b) Being ill has played havoc with my routine. I shopped Tuesday not last Friday as I would normally, hence much more food around at the end of the working week.
c) I purchased items I wouldn’t typically. Can you see the ready-made pizza? The houmous? Actimel? The list goes on…
Buy pizza? No not me… not usually, but I’m going to forgive myself
Those who follow the blog, regularly, know I’m not a fan of convenience food. In fact I did a costing experiment in 2011 on ready-made versus home-cooked. However, I have decided to allow a ready-meal night, say every fortnight or even once a week so I get a night off. And I’m going to do it guilt-free!
A teeny-tiny bit of guilt remains, but hey, we all experience that emotion from time to time, don’t we? Whether justified or not?
I’m sure the purchase of the convenience pizza is a glitch. Particularly after seeing what can be cooked up in the kitchen. Here’s hoping I can replicate The Frugal Girl’s fabulous recipe and do it justice. But as I have decided to go a little easier on myself, I’ll be satisfied with good enough!
The good news is that there is no waste within the fridge. It may be stacked but it all has a purpose and place. Next week’s meal plan will incorporate all the items. In fact the olives, peppers and pesto will rustle up another one of these. I may be ill, but I haven’t totally lost my way
I do have waste though – boo.
Totally forgot I had carrots in the cupboard. Duh!
