It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Not bad eh?
There’s just cucumber and grapes to consume over the weekend. But this may be the last cuke you see sitting in my Fridge for a while. This item of salad’s days have been numbered since I have failed to find it sold without plastic wrapping. And as it seems to be potential food waste most weeks, I think it’s going off the menu for a while.
As the fridge is bare, we are having a takeaway this evening, for the first time in a long-time. It’s a day off for me. Yay!
Which is very much welcomed because yesterday lunchtime, this is what my Fridge looked like.
I had an hour before I left the house for a playdate. But I knew immediate action was required.
1. Roughly chopped the tomatoes and onion, added a splash or 2 of balsamic vinegar, some herbs and garlic and sautéed for 20 minutes.
It’s now a frozen pasta sauce for emergencies!
2. Also into the freezer went the remaining strawberries. They were introduced to some cousins I’d frozen a week or so back.
Protein smoothies here they come!
3. I’m a soup fan. No question then. The cauliflower and cheddar were popped in Brenda (slow-cooker) to make the simplest soup on this planet. I even popped the small block of parmesan in as there are no plans for it to make an appearance in the meal-plan over the weekend.
Another addition to the freezer for lunches next week. Oh and I’ll partake in a portion this lunchtime as well.
4. Can you see the cookie dough? All week there’s been cookie dough in my fridge. Instead of batch cooking it in one go, every couple of days I’ve made it an activity with the Kids.
These were taken to the playdate. Dan chose what shape to do each child. I’d been pleasantly awoken by the post-lady early with a delivery. I’d been itching to try my new cookie-cutters out!
The recipe is over at Jo-Jo Bakes for those who’d like to give it a whirl. Very simple, fool-proof. And of course, very tasty!
I do have 2 food confessions this week.
Firstly I didn’t make the rough-puff-pastry as planned. I thawed out some puff-pastry I had. But, I will be making it next. Without fail.
Secondly I lost a satsuma and a strawberry. They were mouldy. I draw the line at mould.
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or is it nice and bare? Please share…
