It’s Friday Guys it’s time for No Waste Tastes Great 🙂
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – selection of spreads and fats for baking, including some leftover buttercream (marked up to avoid the Hubby spreading it on his sandwiches. I made a Vodka themed 40th Birthday Cake this week and a photo of it’s on my Facebook page), Cheese, garlic and yogurt (in date).
Top Middle Shelf – 5 Tomatoes whose original fate was soup last Friday. However they have kept well and are now very nicely ripe, so I’ve decided to make chutney this weekend instead. There’s also some leftover Christmas Pud mixture, those who read my post Wednesday know the background to the puds.
Bottom Shelf – To the left, some spicy carrot soup, and to the right some broccoli and stilton soup.
Door – Milk and OJ (still going strong!)
WE HAVE WASTE! 🙁
The culprit is the spicy carrot soup. There was one portion remaining from a batch slow-cook I did last Saturday. I was supposed to eat it Tuesday, but an impromptu trip to the dentist meant I didn’t get chance. By day 6 of sitting in the fridge I’m not sure it’s edible, it may be as it’s a vegetable soup. Hmmm not sure? I’ll bank it as waste this week as I can’t guarantee it will be eaten today. The broccoli soup will get eaten lunchtime. (update 4pm – I ate it)
My other dilemma is the Christmas pud mixture. I slow-cooked (for the first year ever yay!) 4 puds on Tuesday, but still had a little mixture over so popped it in the fridge. I’m considering putting in ramekins to make mini-puds this weekend to try out the recipe as I have no idea what the puds will taste like, and this will be a great practice run for the big day. Although I’m rather proud with how they look – a little rugged and imperfect, a wonderful home-made trait!
The Hubby has a rare day off work today and it’s the Christmas Disco at school (I’m a helper!) this evening so the plan is to make home-made pizza for dinner early on and all eat together. So lovely when we get opportunity to do that in the week.
How’s your Friday Fridge looking today? As stuffed as a holiday turkey (Happy Belated Thanksgiving to all my US readers!), or as lean as a marathon runner? Please share!
