It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge (taken very early hence awful light)
Nothing to see here!
Well not a lot. It’s the usual spreads, yoghurt and garlic on the top shelf (I’m even out of cheese this week). All in date.
Then there’s a few baked beans and some eggs. It’s omelette and beans for lunch for Dan and I today. The remaining eggs are well in date and will be used over the forthcoming week.
So that’s what my Friday Fridge looks like when I keep my eye on the prize.
But I do have a potential waste confession.
At the bottom of my fridge there’s a compartment. I don’t use it for perishables and produce, but condiments that have a long shelf life. I’m a big believer that ‘out of sight’ is indeed ‘out of mind’ when it comes to food.
But we all make mistakes. Somehow half a jar of sundried tomatoes ended up amongst the condiments, and when I emptied it this morning (for the first time in a couple of weeks) I found them. I’d like to blame the Hubby for putting them there so as to be able to plead some forgiveness, but it’s unlikely. He’s scared to touch anything in the fridge 😉 just in case he messes up my system!
Which is shameful, I know. Even worse in that I’ve been so on the ball this week, that because we’d had an impromptu takeaway on Wednesday, I am cooking up the ingredients, not used then, for tonight’s dinner. The slow cooker is already loaded, there’s a slow cooked Chilli on the menu.
The tomatoes would have been a tasty addition to the Chilli. they haven’t quite met their fate yet, I’m mulling over still using them. They’ve been kept refrigerated, and actually have a ‘unopened date’ of 2014. I’m wondering how much tomatoes that can last till 2014 unopened will have deteriorated in a month if opened? Hmmm?
The Kid’s have a party after school, so they’ll eat there.
(Better get cracking – I have a decoupage birthday box to finish!)
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.
