....I’ve got into the habit of making all our bread and haven’t bought a loaf this year so that really hurt! mmm--know how that feels ....
On the positive side though… I turned the sprouty potatoes and an OOD jar of sauce into a tasty gratin for Wednesday tea; used a mixture of frozen potato products instead of buying more frozen chips for Thursday tea; and on Friday (after the chaos caused by DH being disorganised and children going to bed late) I didn’t reach for the hidden Pringles or make do with a piece of toast (I’m not good at cooking just for myself), I made some chicken fried rice which was delicious and cheap and even without precooked rice it was done faster than DH can pick up a takeaway!!! :j (Sorry but I’m very proud of that one). Don't be sorry; shout it from the rooftops! You are justified in celebrating your minor victories :T
I’m ashamed to admit it, but previously I’d have ignored the potatoes until they got too disgusting to do anything with and automatically gone out to buy chips rather than using up an alternative. Please don’t throw me out of here, I’m trying to reform and it’s reading and posting here that’s helping me to change.
....Thanks for the support....
