It’s Friday Guys, time for No Waste Tastes Great.
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Spreads, butter-cream, cheddar and garlic
Top Middle Shelf – 3 tiny chocolate yoghurts (that the Kid’s like)
Bottom Shelf – 2 onions, some leftover spaghetti bolognese and a virtually empty jar of home-made pickled beetroot (it’s now mostly vinegar).
Door – Milk and OJ
Not bad eh? I’ve kept my eye on the prize this week. The only item to use up is the spaghetti bolognese. The Kid’s will have it tonight with some home-made garlic and herb flat-breads. It’ll be chocolate yoghurt for dessert, I may have to eat the third to stop them arguing over it. The onions and beetroot will be used up over the weekend.
Not all great news, however. The Brie is still hanging around.
This unassuming piece of cheese has been with us since Christmas. It’s beginning to feel like one of the family. I’ve even considered naming it. The wrapper finally got taken off last weekend, as part of the Hubby’s Birthday celebrations, but we didn’t eat all of it. Despite valiant attempts this week to include it with our cheese and cracker supper, that we appear to have developed a habit of having, there’s still some left.
I have a saying. ‘If in doubt make soup’. So that’s what I am going to do. Brie has never struck me as a soup type of cheese, but it seems I am mistaken. A quick Google has uncovered quite a few recipes, of which mushroom and brie looks the most appetising (and frugal). Extra mushrooms are being added to my shopping list this week. I’ll update on Facebook how it goes and if any good I will share the recipe.
I also have these to use up;
After last weeks’ success, I’m going to make another sweet potato curry. Served with rice and flat-bread that’s mine and the Hubby’s dinner sorted. The butternut squash will be turned into soup. One of the recipes in the mini e-book I’m putting together is spicy butternut squash. Today may be a good day to get it all photographed and in the slow-cooker.
How’s your fridge looking this Friday? Are there any unloved pieces of cheese hanging around, or has everything got a purpose and place?
No Waste Tastes Great is bought to you (as always) with thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original inspiration.
I now update daily of Facebook, why not head on over and take a look?
I’ve just updated Facebook with the Nutty Sweet Potato slow-cooked curry I made as part of No Waste Tastes Great. At less that a £1 per serving including rice and flat-bread, it’s a super frugal meal, and pretty tasty too.
