It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Spreads, cheeses, garlic and a half-squeezed lemon
Bottom Middle Shelf – Grapes, 2 x apples, and 3 x satsumas, melon and cucumber
Door – Milk and 4 x eggs
Not a lot to report today – Hooray! The spreads have life left in them yet and the cheeses will be used up over the forthcoming week.
The lemon I’ve pierced and have been using to clean and also squeeze over fish this week. I’ll continue to use to clean next week, and once most of the juice has gone I’ll use the rind and zest to make my Mom a lemon drizzle cake – her favourite.
The fruit and cuke will be accompanying The Wright’s on their weekend adventure to the beach.
Eggs for lunch before we head off, and there’s hardly any milk to speak of.
No grocery shop or dinner to prepare for me today. We’ll be eating on the road.
I love it when a plan comes together!
It would appear no waste this week then? No such luck, unfortunately this happened on Tuesday.
Immediate action required to save the remaining 5 vine tomatoes.
A little chopping later, and voila! A tomato and basil pasta sauce (ragu) was slow-cooked and then used in a spag-bol the following day.
But…I’m not accepting total responsibility for the decline of the tom.
It was 3 days old (from purchase). I probably should have taken it out of the packaging. Pretty convinced it was the packaging that was its demise. Too much moisture. Lesson learnt.
Which brings me back to packaging. From the great comments my last post generated, I am once more questioning my shopping habits – particularly in respect of unnecessarily packaged goods. My next shop is Monday, and I’m going to try an alternative outlet for the fruit/veg. Maybe I’ve been a little lazy of late?
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.
