    Wind is bad, a couple of big trees down, an ash about 50' high and a birch which is bigger at least they didn't bring down any fencing. There's also a a broken field gate, ripped off its post. At least I'll have enough logs for next year. Hope everyone is ok and safe.

    OUT
    turkey breast
    bacon - going to do turkey strips wrapped in bacon for tea. I'll make as many as I can and freeze the rest for another day.
    2 slices teabread
    blueberries
    plums probably crumble or pie afterwards for DH I'm having sugarfree jelly.

    IN
    cooked turkey/bacon when I've done them

    Loads - OUT definately lots of wiggle room.
    - Fruits, Veggie Burgers, homemade soups x4, veggie mince, meat free chorizo and lots of veg from fridge. Made the most lovely Ethiopian inspired lentil & potato dish, amazing what you can do when you have to think out of the box. Can't wait to go shopping 2moz, need salad stuff, stock cubes, spices & garlic, really hoping to not spend more than £10 and that should be me done 'till end of month.

    Out: bolognese sauce.
    In: nothing

    I can now open both freezers without a cascade of bullet like goods raining down - this is definite progress.

    I am going to try and list everything that remains in the small freezer and create a meal plan. I don't need to food shop this week and this month so far I have spent £39.84 which included buying a years supply of M&S coffee when it was on sale (must be a thread wide coffee bargain gene).

  • That's me away for a week!! Very best of luck for the week ahead and keep on using up all those stores folks...

    Out: nothing
    In: sprouts, broccoli, cauli rice (F)

    OH has 'the' list and it includes takeaway and steak so they're all happy. I still haven't eaten anything - day 8 today but I'm off to sunny Cyprus and I'm okay with heat. Yeay.

    Had a spend in MrM and BandM yesterday of £22.96 for stocking up things like loo rolls, HP sauce, bread, milk, cheese, fruit, veg etc. A few branded items that I wouldn't normally buy it's all bought now and ready for the recipes.

    Zafiro - cauliflower 'rice' is just cauliflower blitzed up in the food processor to resemble rice and is used in place of rice for low carb eating. I will blitz and bag in small portions then when needed I will just pop in microwave for a few minutes with garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper. It's obviously nothing like the texture of rice but it's tasty and soaks up curry well.

    See you in a week x

    Just moved stuff in the fridge and discovered an unopened pack of grapes BB 28/12/16 and they are perfectly fine not even a little wrinkly despite being nearly two months over date :eek: Will need to get them used up now they're open as suspect they might start deterioating quite quickly now, just as well I don't worry about dates on fruit & veg:D
