    I have also discovered tons of frozen fresh fruit, redcurrants, white currants, blackberries and raspberries. Shame it has not been crumble weather.

    No but it is Summer Pudding weather! ;) I've also discovered some blackberries and blackcurrants so think I might just stew a few down and cool for adding to my Greek yogurt in the mornings.

    Actually I found rhubarb and did it with that and it is delicious stirred through. Tasted like a lovely fruit fool.

    That reminds me I have a bag of summer fruits in my freezer I think I will dig it out and make something with it I have three past-their best eating apples in the fruit bowl so I may make a nice crumble with them all.
    last night I had a peppered beefburger which I had forgotten about and two cheese and leek veggie sausages that I had got 'whoopsied' ages ago I had them with mash and green beens all froom my freezer. I know I have a big ham hock in there so I might dig that out today and SC overnight It will give me quite a bit of stock towards my soups which I want to make .

    I made egg/bacon pie for dinner last night......10 oz home made shortcrust pastry, 4 eggs, 1 tomato, 6 oz bacon and half an onion. It is an old recipe - Yorkshire egg/bacon pie.....I like that the eggs are put in the pie whole rather than beaten first. Delicious hot or cold for summer picnics. Makes a large pie - only two of us - so it does three dinners. We had it last night with roast pots + roast baby sweetcorn/beetroot and the rest of the onion. Going to have it tonight with home made spicy wedges/carrots/peas. We will have smoked haddock from the freezer for dinner tomorrow and the rest of the pie on Saturday.

    hmmm well my first night of eating only from the freezer was errr... interesting

    found some chopped onions and an unidentified vacum pac in the freezer, looked like chicken so thought great will make some pasta (still got 7 packs left from approved foods), along with one of the billion jars of sauce that have overtaken my cupboards and basement stairs.

    chicken turned out to be rhubarb..... not quite so nice with salsa sauce as you can imagine... niece refused point blank to entertain the thought of eating it so I quickly defrosted one of the packs of bacon which i don't even remember buying or why and used that instead. sent my niece out to the shops to get a couple of apples and made a rhubarb and apple crumble - no custard so made a milky cream sauce with a couple of real berries in jars (again from approved food) and had a rather surprisingly lush dessert

    tonight i shall attempt the chicken again!

    I regularly make a sugar free jelly and add in fruit. I just made a raspberry jelly to put my raspberries in.

    If you buy soft fruit and blueberries in the reduced, putting them in jelly prolongs the life of the fruit.
  • Id like to join in for this! May need milk and bread but other than that hoping to last the month (ie, july) on what we already have in! I pretty much know whats in my freezer (mostly mince based meals!) and have enough rice/pasta/tortilla wraps to last for about 3 months or so ! but may get bored of mince plus rice/pasta/wraps so will need to be creative!...

    Forgive me, as I know how annoying this can be,but it really made me chuckle,it reminded me of the time I took my Son what I thought was Beef Curry and turned out to be faggots .
