It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas. Okay, so it’s starting to look a little like Christmas.
Shall I explain?
The top shelf is the usual spreads, garlic and yogurt – all with life left in them yet.
But cast your eyes below. Not instantly recognisable but there are 2 homemade Christmas puddings and some salt dough.
Following my new recipe (eliminating animal fat and substituting breadcrumbs) I made 3 puddings.
Correction, I actually ended up making 4 puddings. Not sure what it is with me and Christmas pudding, I also make way too much mixture.
Fortunately a neighbour had a spare pudding basin. They are now the proud owner of a Christmas pud (a bready one ;-)).
I won’t be sharing the recipe here this year because it’s not quite right. I know this, because we’ve already eaten the small one. Very tasty with ice-cream (well, I’m trying to make it not too Christmassy yet!). It’s too bready (is that even a word?). It needs work!
The salt dough I’m not planning on eating. I made these:
And I still have more to make. I’m having a stall at the village fayre this Sunday. My first ever. I’m a little bit scared…
You may have noticed – No waste at Chez Wright – Hurrah. The first in a long time. There’s also nothing for dinner, but that’s okay because I am out to eat then catching the new Twilight movie. The Hubby is away and the Kids have a sleepover.
Fortunately there’s a portion of Broccoli and Stilton soup sitting on the bottom shelf for my lunch. No cooking for me today – hooray!
