It’s Friday Guys – It’s time for No Waste Tastes Great
Click here to find out more about my Friday routine – Written almost a year to the day!
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Spreads, Garlic and Ginger – there is Cheese also but just as I was about to photograph the fridge I removed to the cheese to start making lunch. We’re having cheese sandwiches!
Top Middle Shelf – 4 Yogurts in date and will be eaten next week.
Bottom Middle Shelf – Head of Broccoli, Head of Cauliflower, Chopped Melon, Grapes, Quarter of a Cucumber and 3 Carrots.
Bottom Shelf – Nothing!
Door – 1 (in date) Egg (I’m out of milk and juice oh no!)
So what’s the plan?
Lunch will use up the melon, grapes and cucumber. I’ve already decided (upon finding 2 large potatoes) that I am going to make fishcakes (there’s fortunately 2 frozen cod fillets in my nearly empty freezer). We are going to all have these for dinner with some cauli, broccoli and the 3 carrots (no takeaway for us tonight). I’m then going to save about two-thirds of both the cauliflower and broccoli and with my remaining cheese make a cauli/broc cheese bake and freeze it for Christmas dinner.
This brings me onto Christmas Dinner. This is my planning weekend.
Whether there will be any interest in this I’m not sure, but if anyone wishes to ask any questions about preparing a Christmas Dinner or how to reduce Christmas food waste, I’ll happily run a post on it early next week. Kind of like a Questions and Answer post. It’s likely I will post about how I’m planning to host Christmas dinner at Chez Wright, and may incorporate it into that if I do get any questions.
How’s your fridge looking this Friday? Is it quaking at the thought of trying to cram in extras in preparation for the Holidays, or is it all decluttered and ready for some tasty arrivals?
I’m now posting daily on Facebook – all sorts of bits and pieces that don’t always make it to the blog!
