It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Looking pretty sparse eh?
Top Shelf – Spread (for cake baking), garlic, cheddar, stilton and wensleydale cheese. All in date.
Top Middle Shelf – Nowt!
Bottom Middle Shelf – Half a jar of shop-bought pasta sauce (from my emergency stash)
Bottom Shelf – Some ‘past their prime’ green grapes
Door – Milk and 2 eggs, plus a third of a bottle of white wine (well I am back doing the school run each day)
I really thought I might have some waste today. Looking at the grapes yesterday it didn’t look promising. However, upon giving them a gentle squeeze this morning, I reckon that they are edible. In fact so determined am I that they won’t go to waste, that I’ll eat them all myself over the weekend to save composting.
So what’s the plan today? Well normally if I have foodstuffs to use up I conjure up a No Waste Tastes Great dish. Lunch will be pasta for Dan and I (he’s home from school at midday) and that’ll take care of the remaining pasta sauce. For dinner the Kids will have boiled egg and soldiers, with cheese and crackers to make it a more substantial meal. Anything goes at Chez Wright on a Friday!
It’s been a while since the Hubby and I partook in a takeaway on a Friday evening but this may be the ideal opportunity. I think a portion of fish and chips from the Village Chipshop would go down quite nicely this evening with the chilled white wine. Classy girl aren’t I?
I am doing my grocery shop this morning at Aldi, and could grab something to slow-cook for later, but I fancy a night off tonight.
The meal plan for next week is already up on the board.
So without further ado it’s off with my grocery list and reusable bags in hand to try to meet my self-imposed £50 grocery budget.
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or is it nice and bare? Please share…
No Waste Tastes Great is bought to you (as always) with thanks to The Frugal Girl for the original inspiration.
