Declaring my 6th NSD in a row today :T ...
Hubby is on duty today -so won't be back until the morning.... so im going to use more odds n sods out of the fridge/freezer :j
Lunch is a portion of liver casserole(from the freezer) with some veggies
dinner -im going to cook chunks of the huge courgette i grew, with garlic, onions, mushrooms, peppers, beans and peas (need to fetch them in later) then a dollop of cream cheese and 1 of wholegrain mustard... i really should put pasta under it -but think i might just have it on its own
I am chuffed to little mintballs that i still have the €61 in my purse that i had on Friday evening.... my purse is sat gathering dust :rotfl: . Hubby gets paid tomorrow so my dilema is if i should just whack all the new housekeeping away into the bank and try and get through next month with just the €61 i have it does sound a bit "low" for the month -but i do have loads in and IF i can just be good and ignore the whoopsies i really only NEED fruit and a bit of veg...
I think i will check over my meal plan and double check what i have in and what i should need and decided from there. I guess the money will be in the bank if i get desperate
I know we are off to the NAFFI tomorrow-so hubby can take advantage of the 3 for 2 on whiskey -so i guess "how good i can be" or "how good the whoopsies are" will be the decider well it would be rude to turn my nose up at a bargain wouldn't it
I need to make myself a new loaf of super seedy bread today -im down to my last 2".. it has stayed as fresh as when i made it on friday and there is no fat in it ...very nice it is too..and good for me
think thats about all I have to do today..the rest of the day is going to be taken up x stitching/knitting..ooooh and setting a few more seeds
have a great day everyone....

Just fetched over 1lb of various beans out of the garden :T I went out to have a bit of a tidy up and thought i'd see what i could find... i also have some carrots and several bright yellow patty pan-and loads more tiny ones on there too :j .... I will be good and blanch and freeze the beans .... even though im tempted to just steam the lot and have them for my dinner tonight:p ... NO i must make the courgette dish to use up other things first :rolleyes:KAAT_LADY
I have just set loads more carrots, salad leaves and pak choi..... have sooo many packets of carrots -so i figured that as i have cleared some tubs out i may as well set them ..still have 4 packets left :rotfl:still im sure we can use them
The bread i did was a concoction Im making a serious effort to eat more wholefoods, seeds, nuts etc and this came out rather well :j I make it by hand and it goes in a 2lb tin .... tomorrow im planning on making baguettes using similar flours/seeds but the baguette method... fingers crossed -mind they are only for me so i will eat them anyway :rotfl: hubby likes his white hm bread
Depending on how the baguetes come out i will post the recipe-once i have thought of it Super seedy bread
300ml warm water
14g fresh yeast
100g wholemeal bread flour
100g sunflower bread flour -it has crushed sunflower seed in but you could add your own to normal bread flour
100g rye bread flour
200g granary flour
then i add poppy, sesame, caraway and linseeds -about 1tbs of each
I made the loaf on friday and it has sat in a plastic bread box all week and every slice is just as moist as the when it was firt made -which surprised me as i didn't add any oil I think it must be the crushed sunflower seeds, the oil must be helping
If you like a lighter bread I would swap some of the flour for some white bread flour, but this didn't come out really dense like they do sometimes:D
Right i really should get my dinner sorted..not that hungry yet but if i leave it much longer i won't bother:rolleyes:
have a good evening all
