It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Let’s get straight to it… I’ve lot’s to share today…
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Spreads and Eggs (some of this was purchased yesterday as I have a birthday cake to make! and will get used up today)
Top Middle Shelf – Leftovers from last night’s dinner. Jelly and some Chickpea and Coconut Curry (to be eaten lunch time today)
Bottom Middle Shelf – Grapes and pepper (also being eaten today as part of lunch, adding pepper to curry when reheated and the grapes will be eaten after). The cauliflower should have been used up on Tuesday. The plan was to make cauliflower cheese to go with the minced beef pie. I didn’t as we had plenty of veggies already.
Bottom Shelf – Jar of homegrown beetroot from my Mom (being used up gradually – there’s a lot of it!)
Drawer at bottom – various condiments all in date
Door Shelf – Milk (to be used up today) and can you spot the deliberate mistake? This made me laugh so I left it there for the photo. It appears I put the coffee in there this morning after my wake up cup! I’m not a morning person!
No Waste Tastes Great – The Plan
I have a large potato to hand also, so have decided to try a cauliflower cheese soup. To say I’m not convinced is an understatement but the cauli’s gotta go! Inspiration struck flicking through a food magazine last night (which I don’t buy by the way – my Big Sis passes on – she has a subscription). There was an advert for a new brand of cheese and they’d photographed a cauliflower cheese soup – and it looked lovely – I’m still not convinced however! Reckon it’s gonna be a ‘love it or hate it’ recipe – I’ll keep you updated as I am having it for dinner (and freezing the remainder)! The kids are having home-made pizza and popcorn and the Hubby a takeaway – after all it’s Date Night at Chez Wright and I’m not sure he’s gonna be a Cauli soup fan!
Extended No Waste Tastes Great
Okay so that should have been the end of the post… but I’ve been itching to photograph my food stocks so am extending it today.
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Smart and sparkly? How about the cupboards – can you see the contents or is it a mish mash of all sorts? Do you know what’s lurking inside, or could it do with a bit of a declutter? Feel free to tell your pantry secrets here! Or if there are any questions about my cupboards I’m happy to bare all!
Don’t forget about Simply Being Mum on Facebook – I update with snippets most days – stuff that I wouldn’t blog about – so if social media’s your thing then give me a like!
As always thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original and ongoing inspiration for No Waste tastes Great
