It’s Friday Guys – time for No Waste Tastes Great
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
Top Shelf – Spreads, fats, garlic, cheese and a chocolate mousse
Top Middle Shelf – Cucumber, grapes and cooked cauliflower
Bottom Middle Shelf – Buttercream
Bottom Shelf – Bacon
Door – Milk and an egg
The top shelf holds items that all still have plenty of shelf-life left in them yet.
The cucumber and grapes will meet their fate tomorrow. We are having a birthday tea for Daddy. A very enthusiastic 7-year-old helper has it all planned.
I have no idea where she gets it from? 😉
There’s buttercream left over from the birthday-cake baking fest I held last week. I produced 3 celebration cakes for friends. The cream was left over from the last one made.
But as it’s the Hubby’s birthday, I have a feeling it may get used up.
**For those who’d like to give it a try – this is how to make a simple birthday cake**
I have cooked cauliflower left over. It’s headed for a cauliflower cheese that I will freeze for consumption over the next week or so.
Tonight’s dinner will consist of bacon and egg for First-born. Second-born, the Hubby and I will be partaking in a slow-cooked vegetable curry. As I do my Aldi grocery shop Friday morning, if the fridge is bare I now scoop up some ingredients for a curry. My 4-year-old son is a curry-monster!
We no longer have a Friday night take-away. I would like to proclaim this saves us about £15. In fact one reason I’ve ditched the Friday night takeout is that we now have fish and chips on a Monday night, after swimming lessons, at a cost of about £10. The kids love it and it’s become a bit of a tradition.
Looking good on the no-waste front? Hmm, yes, apart from this;
The question is to eat or not to eat?
They are off-cuts of puff-pastry, now a week old. I can’t decide whether to make cheese puffs?
How’s your Fridge looking this Friday? Anything to declare? Or is it nice and bare? Please share…
