It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Cheese, spreads, garlic and kiddy yoghurt
Top Middle Shelf – Leftover slow-cooked ham from yesterday
Bottom Middle Shelf – Mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, 3 peppers and a courgette (zucchini)
Bottom Shelf – Half a bag of pre-packed salad and half a jar of sundried tomatoes
Door – Eggs, Milk and OJ
Those who follow No Waste Tastes Great may be surprised at the amount of food residing in my fridge on a Friday morning. This is what happens when I don’t meal plan properly. Note to self – regardless of circumstances take time to plan meals!
However as always there’s a No Waste Tastes Great plan!
The top shelf’s all in date, as are the eggs, and the sundried tomatoes will be used next week in a 3 bean chilli. The ham will be eaten today. The Kids are having ham and cheese sandwiches for lunch (I’ll have cheese only as I’m no longer eating meat). It’ll be ham, scrambled egg and veggies for the Kid’s dinner.
I’m pretty overloaded with vegetables, so a lasagne is on the cards. Last Saturday I nipped into a supermarket I don’t normally frequent and grabbed some emergency ‘make it quick’ supplies. A couple of jars will get used today. I can stretch the ingredients to make 2 lasagnes. The Hubby and I will have one for dinner and the other one will be frozen. The salad will be served with dinner tonight.
There is some potential waste however. I’m not sure what to do with this:
It’s a remaining small portion of leftover 3 bean chilli. It’s a week old. Is it edible? I’m not sure? If it is I’ll have it for lunch, if not it’s headed for the food recycling bin. I’ll have a think (aka google) and make a decision.
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or is it nice and bare? Please share…
Keep reading Guys… I have a giveaway.
The nice people of Aldi would like to send one of my readers a hamper of Easter goodies. So how did this come about? Well I’ve recently started shopping at Aldi, and have been impressed by the quality of their products. I’ve mentioned Aldi here a few times, and they’ve contacted me. Now I know I like their chocolate and we’ve already sampled a few of the Easter products at Chez Wright. Dan’s favourites are the chocolate bunny lollies. So it’d be great to let one of you try their goodies out instead.
This is what Aldi will be sending out (in their words):
“A hamper of great-value treats from Aldi’s Easter range, perfect for all the family. You’ll receive a selection of edible goodies such as Dairyfine Milk Chocolate Eggs and Choceur Chocolate Bunny, as well as the luxurious Choceur Flame Egg.”
Please be aware that I am in no way compensated for this giveaway and would never mention a brand or product unless I myself shopped there or bought it. That’s not my style! I blog for my dear readers and myself, not for manufacturers and retailers.
You must live in the UK I’m afraid… hampers are heavy things to courier!
If you’d like to be entered into the giveaway (there’s only one hamper – sorry Guys!) then please pop a comment in below – a simple ‘enter me I’m from the UK’ will suffice or please feel free to say more, it’s the great comments from you Guys that make this blog. Please make sure it’s obvious you want to be entered – thanks!
A winner will be randomly chosen on Sunday (cut off for comment entries is 12pm Sunday 25 March) and it’ll be posted over at Facebook and back on this post. I have an idea on how to do the draw, no guarantees, but if I can pull it off it may be worth a watch on Facebook.
No Waste Tastes Great is bought to you (as always) with thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original inspiration.
