It’s Friday Guys! It’s time for …
No Waste Tastes Great
Fridays I take a little time first thing to strip down the fridge and perishables cupboard, clean both of them, take note of anything that needs replenishing, return any items back to the fridge leaving what needs using up on the counter.
So what is sitting on the counter in anticipation this week?
2 Free Range Chicken Breasts
Half a Punnet of Mushrooms
Some Ready Made Puff Pastry
Slow-cooked Ginger, Carrot and Lentil Soup
So what’s the plan?
Quite a good and easy combination of foodstuffs this week:
The chicken, mushrooms and pastry will make a fantastic slow-cooked pie, which I will prep as soon as I have finished this post. That will be the Hubby’s dinner tonight. The Kids and I are attending a fish and chip super at the Village School tonight – so date night was cancelled anyway this week.
The soup I will use up for lunch today. The remaining 7 carrots I will slow-cook some more of the soup overnight tonight. This I will freeze and gift my very dear (vegetarian) friend who has just given birth to a beautiful baby girl.
Both recipes I will post over at No Waste Tastes Great and then drop the link back over here. If you like spicy soup I highly recommend taking a look, it is the nicest soup I have ever had, and although I have adapted it to make it even simpler, the initial inspiration comes from my favourite cookbook Ultimate Slow Cooker by Sara Lewis.
How’s your potential foodwaste looking this week – salvageable? Any grand plans for using up – please do share!
