Hi Guys – It’s Food Waste Friday.
I’ve been away from the blog since the last time I officially hosted Food Waste Friday, which was 2 weeks ago now.
Normal service has resumed. I have a functioning blog. Yay! A new improved one. Double Yay!
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge – Before
Simply Being Mum’s Friday Fridge – After
I’d like to say that the before photo is organised chaos. I did actually know what was in there this week (I don’t every week I admit). The Kids’ had free reign to make lunch a couple of times this week, while off school, and they aren’t quite as particular in how they organise the food inside the fridge. Understatement.
A little bit of chaos is a small price to pay for the Kids’ learning about making their own lunch, isn’t it?
The after photo is of a rather well stocked Friday fridge. This because I’m having a vintage tea at my house for a few guests. Knowing there wouldn’t be opportunity to grab the bits and pieces I needed, this morning, the fridge was stocked up yesterday. The cakes are yet to arrive! I decided to outsource, and there will be a photo on Instagram later.
As for waste – potentially there are 3 chocolate mousses that are looking a little worse for wear.
One thing I have learned this summer is that chocolate mousses do not travel well. These ventured down to Cornwall with us last week and back.
On a more positive note, I have a plan for some peppers and onions that are surplus.
A while back (quite a while back!) I was sent some free samples from The Bhaji Man – Don Lear.
Now I love curry. Truly love it. And when I looked at the ingredients list on Don’s products I was thrilled. From what I can see there are no additives or preservatives. I’m excited to whip up a Jalfrezi this evening for date night. Just need to remember to pick up some chicken later today. The plan is to post the recipe step by step also. Watch this space!
Click here to head on over to The Bhaji Man’s website. Go say Hi to Don. A really interesting and inspiring Guy, who has followed his passion (and I can totally understand where he is coming from):
“Only one in six British families cook from scratch so you can just imagine what rubbish they eat and what they spend. For a generation and a half we haven’t mentored our kids round the kitchen table.” Don Lear.
