    Have a wonderful time away jensfeet.

    Used the last of the pilaf at lunch and the stew was finished for tea. It'll be a veggie pasta tomorrow for tea and Sunday we're going to mum and dad's, so not much getting used over the weekend sadly. Monday is supposed to be a take away/treaty tea for coming in under budget, and Tuesday is shrove Tuesday and I might just do pancakes as that's all he wants. We used to do savoury ones but I'm not sure I can honestly be bothered! I'll see how I feel on the day.

    I have been planning for March though and I have checked the freezer and cupboard first!

    pk of venison mince
    4 slices bread
    also used from cupboard, chickpeas, and tinned toms.
    Everything else came out of fridge and veg plot

    IN nothng

    Just cleaned out the fridge tonight and sorted it out. I think I have enough cooked meat to last a few days and certainly enough veg.
    Made cauliflower rice tonight, -different, not unpleasant - and it helped with the curry sauce, so I'll be doing it again.

  • Making soup from l/o cauliflower cheese, bunch of wilting spring onions, out - mixed peppers/cooking bacon bits/bit of red onion/leeks. Bung in soup maker later and hope. Will make enough for 2/3 days. Operation is on agin for March 6th and will be away for a few weeks so using up the fresh I bought after previous cancellation and trying to use up some freezer stuff as I have cooked some ready meals for when I do return home, slightly unable to do much. Freezer tetris on hold I am afraid.

    Used up lots of stuff today with a big mezze lunch : salad, hm humous, halloumi, felafels, gigantes plaki, pittas. A few leftovers have been lobbed in the fridge but I'll be able to polish those off for lunch on Monday.

    Used up lots of bits - but 6 portions of veggie bake and 3 mashed potato into the freezer. DH will definitely not be eating the bake but he'll have the mash if I grill some sausages for him.

    Tonight we have various curries - a lot of leftovers deliberately so DH has some easy meals.
