It’s Friday Guys and it’s time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
From top to bottom…
Top Shelf – Spreads and Chilli’s in blue pot (all in date)
Top Middle Shelf – Cheese, Lemon, Cucumber and Onion
Bottom Middle Shelf – Dan’s lunch – Yorkshire Pud and Veggies (leftovers)
Bottom Shelf – Chicken and Peppers thawing out after I removed them from the freezer last night.
Door – 2 Large Eggs, Milk and an unopened carton of OJ (more on the OJ later)
Okay so I’ve redeemed myself after last Friday’s misadventure with the spooky jar of pickled beetroot.
Everything in the fridge has a purpose and place. This Friday I am actually going to ‘entertain’ with what I have left…anyone think I’m getting a little too confident? 🙂
A friend is joining me for lunch so I am hand-making bread rolls, and at the same time putting some dough aside for the Kid’s tea tonight. They are having home-made pizza with tomato puree and cheese on top, and cucumber on the side.
For lunch we are having cheese and onion rolls with cucumber (my friend’s vegetarian) and potato chips (crisps) on the side. I am making a lemon drizzle cake with the two eggs and lemon left over. I may add some ice-cream on the side. Dan’s having yorkie pud and veggie leftovers from last night with a spot of gravy.
That just leaves approx 3/4 of an onion, and the thawing chicken and peppers that I took out of the freezer last night. Friday Night is Date Night at Chez Wright, and we have been indulging in a takeaway. However my taste for takeaways has been diminishing, particularly since my cooking from scratch experiment. So the chicken, onion and peppers will be slow cooked with canned tomatoes and curry paste to make a tasty Balti.
So that’s the plan! There’ll be very little left in the fridge for my grocery shop tomorrow.
This Friday I’ve also photographed what general supplies I have left over as I plan on posting Monday further information on my grocery shop and meal plan. I thought it would be good to see where I am starting from as I plan for the week! (plus I quite like photographing my cupboards – is that slightly odd?)
Among this lot I have two and a half bottles of red wine. Which is pretty impressive considering I didn’t purchase a bottle last week at all. Two bottles were a gift as a thank you for a favour I did, and the half bottle (half of which we drank last night) has a story behind it. I’ll come back to this and the OJ next week sometime.
So that’s where I’m at… how’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Has everything got a purpose and place, or is some of it heading for the compost heap?
Off to start making that lemon cake, and to lick the mixing bowl – naughty I know but I’m prepared to take my chances… The cake will be making an appearance on my Facebook page later!
