The No Waste Tastes Great plan this Friday
Lunch today will be cheese, crackers, cucumber, grapes and I am finally going to try to finish off the beetroot. Any remaining cucumber will be eaten tonight and over the weekend. The Kid’s will also have some with the pizza I plan to make them for dinner.
3 eggs will be used to make (yet another) Birthday cake for this weekend. The same cake as I made earlier this week. The remaining egg the Kids will fight over to crack, and then make a few fairy cakes for us all to enjoy after dinner.
The Hubby and I will not be partaking in a takeaway tonight (I can’t remember the last Friday we did?). Instead I am going to make a potato and mushroom Balti with flat bread. I have some potatoes leftover. Unfortunately they do look a little like this:
Truthfully, I don’t mind. A few roots peel off, it makes little difference to the potato under the skin.
One of these weary looking pots will also be making its way into ‘Brenda my vegetarian slow-cooker’ to make a broccoli and blue cheese soup along with half of the large onion. The other half of the onion will be used in the Balti.
The broccoli and Stilton soup will be featured in the mini e-book I’m putting together at the moment, don’t forget if you’d like a free copy just drop me a comment or an e-mail. It’s probable it’ll be the end of March before it’s complete and ready to e-mail out.
Whilst cleaning the fridge today, I remembered a reader had requested the dimensions of my fridge. The Hubby had measured it at the time, then I lost the piece of paper he wrote it on. Too proud (or rather embarrassed) to ask what they were again, it went on the back-burner. Today I remembered to grab a tape measure, so I’ll be hot footing it over to my Facebook page as soon as this post goes up to share the news. Sorry Aggie!
Measurements aren’t the only thing I came away with, unfortunately.
As I said earlier, I’m not squeamish. In many cases I’m happy to use certain foodstuffs after their best before date. But the jerk sauce I’ve had way too long, it’s time to say good-bye. And mayonnaise I never take chances with. I always buy the smallest jar I can find, but this time it just hasn’t got used. That’s my food waste confessional dealt with. Oh dear better luck next week.
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Is it confessional time for you or is it looking saintly? Please share.
No Waste Tastes Great is bought to you (as always) with thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original inspiration.
I’ll post the Balti recipe later today!
Couldn’t upload this image to Facebook (presume file size too large) so have popped it here. What do you reckon? Fairy or Butterfly cake?
