It’s Friday Guys – Food Waste Friday.
And it’s my week to host! Yay!
Let’s get on with the show…
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge
This Friday fridge photo has been taken before my No Waste Tastes Great routine.
I’m on a go-slow today (actually I decided to do ‘work’ work before blogging today).
Hence there I was at 9am sitting on a cold tiled kitchen floor, drinking green tea from my Poldark mug – videoing my fridge. It doesn’t get any more Rock n Roll than that does it?

(see, I did listen – I’m no longer embedding video :))
In fact I’m so behind schedule today that I haven’t even done an inventory of my fridge. The plan is to look back at the photo above and talk through it.
Top Shelf: Jam, greek yoghurts, mozzarella, pasta sauce, grapes and nail soup
Top Middle Shelf: Strawberries, salad, salmon, bacon, cheese
Bottom Middle Shelf: Carrots, soya milk, olive oil spread, green pepper and cherry tomatoes
Bottom Shelf: Marmalade, beans, tikka paste, milk and water
Door: Condiments and milk
Can you tell I’m back to following a more Paleo based meal plan at the moment?
Everything in the fridge is fine. Nothing about to spoil. But to ensure it remains that way we’ll be having a lot of salad over the next couple of days. That’ll be salmon salad, and bacon salad.
The carrots will be slow cooked into a great nail soup. I love nail soup. Anything goes. I still have one portion sitting on the top self from some parsnips, carrots and leeks I had hanging around last week. After cooking it was a little bland, one spoon of Patak’s tikka paste and problem solved. Once open it lasts 6 weeks refrigerated, so I’ll be adding more to my next batch, and the it’s likely there’ll be a slow cooked curry on next weeks meal-plan also.
I did lose some non-refrigerated food this week. About 6 slices of bread, it went mouldy. We are having unusually warm weather in the UK. The plastic wrapping and the heat weren’t compatible and mould set in. Lesson learnt, I’m keeping bread frozen currently until the British normal service resumes!
How’s your fridge looking this Friday? Did you photograph it? Did you blog about it? Or are you simply participating in your own way?
