It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
If you are new here, please click on this link to find out more about my Friday routine.
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Spreads, cheese, garlic and 2 x green chilli’s (in blue tub)
Top Middle Shelf – Grapes and some leftover raspberry frosting
Bottom Middle Shelf – Small head of broccoli and a handful of cooked pasta
Bottom Shelf – My Mom’s home-made pickled beetroot (yes another jar!)
Door – Milk and OJ
Not bad eh?
The plan – not too taxing this week…
Top shelf all in date – sorted.
Grapes will be eaten after school today by the Kids and I. The frosting is left over from decorating some muffins on Monday. First-born wants to do a cake-stall at the weekend and sell them to unsuspecting relatives – that should use all the frosting up. She’s donating the money to charity.
The handful of pasta I will add some veggies and sauce for Second-born’s lunch after school (he only attends morning’s at the moment).
And the broccoli has already been dealt with;
I’m slow-cooking it on high (so it should be ready by lunchtime as it’s a small portion) with cheese. I’ll have it as soup for lunch today and tomorrow.
Talking about soup. I also have these remaining from my grocery shop;
6 sweet potatoes, a butternut squash and two onions. I have a great recipe to batch cook two different kinds of soup from these ingredients (using the 2 chillis also). They’ll be frozen for lunches next week.
So what’s for dinner tonight as there isn’t anything to use up? Well Friday Night is Date Night at Chez Wright. We had been partaking in a takeaway but since my cooking from scratch experiment I’m finding it harder to make that call and put my order in. Friday night is now slow-cooked curry night. As I now grocery shop on a Friday, I grab anything I need and load the slow cooker up after lunch. The Kids will be having home-made flat-bread pizza and veggies. I’ll make some extra flat-breads for the Hubby and I to have with our curry.
Just going back to soup for a moment, I have decided to put together a mini e-book of my 6 favourite simple vegetarian slow-cooked soups. It’s a free e-book, a little thank you to you all for reading (and putting up with me!). I’m not sure exactly when it will be completed. Daytime light currently in the UK is making taking decent photos difficult. A particular problem for me, as my kitchen has black granite worktops and a very dark floor.
If you would like a copy either comment here and confirm you’d like a copy e-mailed, or contact me directly at simplybeingmum (at) gmail (dot) com.
I never e-mail readers without their specific consent.
How’s your Fridge looking this (grey and dismal – in the UK anyway!) Friday? Have you got a No Waste Tastes Great plan?
As always No Waste Tastes Great is brought to you with thanks to The Frugal Girl for her original inspiring Food Waste Friday
I’m now posting daily on Facebook – My menu-plan for the next 6 days will be going up later today
