It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
There’s no doubt this week I kept my ‘Eye On The Prize’, there wasn’t a day where I wasn’t inspecting the fridge and checking out what was to be used up in anticipation of No Waste Tastes Great. This was partly due to the fact that this week I didn’t do a grocery shop and had one of my ‘use it up’ weeks.
I’ve shared the way I meal plan and shop already on this blog, but it has since changed. I’ll be posting about it soon having recently reduced my grocery spend by at least 25% a week.
What impact did this have on my Friday Fridge this week?
So it’s toasted cheese and tomato sandwiches at lunch for my beautiful Son and I, and then an omelette with frozen veggies for him at dinner.
For the first week in an eternity it will be a takeaway for Date Night at Chez Wright. I’ve resisted the temptation to grab a few ingredients on the way home from the school run for a slow cooked curry, after the Hubby commented wistfully earlier this week that it had been ‘AGES since we’d had a takeaway’…
The reason for the total lack of waste this week is due to not doing a shop and really thinking about what could be used up and how. Earlier in the week we had a lovely donation of some ripe homegrown tomatoes from a work colleague. They were sitting in the fridge yesterday, and inspiration struck.
Last night we had slow cooked tomato soup and cheese and tomatoes on toast.
It was the first time I’d made it without lentils and we really enjoyed it. One portion even travelled with me on the school run this morning as I gifted it to a friend who has started Weight Watchers. It’s less than 1 point per serving!
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Are we all mean and lean or is it fit to burst?
