    ...... I've only got half the fridge left to eat now!
    Did you give the OH the other half?  And how does one prep a fridge???   Start with a chain saw???

    I'm using up the leftover pork from yesterday's roast dinner. I have minced up the meat and fried it with lots of finely diced veg - onions, garlic, mushrooms, aubergine, carrots, plus some peas and a little bit of leftover red chilli - and cooked that down in a sauce made from miso pate, mirin and sake.  It'll be topped with buttery root veg mash and baked. My version is loosely based on an Australian recipe I found online. Not sure if I will add cabbage to the mash or not though.

    Spinach and ricotta tortellini with some caramelised onion and cheese flat bread. Quick (although i still seem to have made a mess) and easy

    Wow that looks interesting! I clicked on the link and they were advertising deals at Coles, an Aussie supermarket, and a small bag of onions is 5 Australian dollars! That's like £2.70!!

    @Brie:D I just meant that I'm only half way through all the food that had accumulated in the fridge. It's slow going when there's just you. 

    I just didn't fancy anything at all this evening so in the end I decided to make myself a treat and made some Dream Bars from an Australian Women's Weekly cook book I found in a charity shop a while ago.
    Here's the online version Dream bars | Australian Women's Weekly Food (womensweeklyfood.com.au) 
    The good part is that I managed to finish off the jar of home made mincemeat that was sitting in the fridge as well as a couple of eggs and some butter and all the other ingredients came from my larder stores.



    Here's mine in my Delia's oblong tin with the liner which is almost the same size as the lamington tin my book specifies, it came out beautifully firm so that it cuts into lovely thin fingers which don't crumble when you eat them.
    I think this recipe is going into my folder of useful ones to make for cakes sales and that sort of thing because it tastes so nice and can be sliced up so attractively.

    Going to do BBC Good Foods spiced root veg and lentil casserole with some SM naan breads tonight. Don’t think DD will be keen but she’s so fussy it’s tough luck!
