  • 2nd portion (also known as l/o) put in a wrap with a ball of mozzerella which had been in fridge for yonks, had grown really fat in its bag but was OK when drained. Also finished off half a courgette and last of the aubergine, fried both and put in wraps. Actually was nicer than I expected. Will finish off some ham into a scrambled egg thing for lunch today. Tonight I have taken some of the hash browns out of freezer, no idea why I bought them !! and a lamb leg steak no doubt with peas and

    plan to have some of the frozen curry and rice for tomorrow. Last 2 slices of sour dough chocolate and nut bread are out for today. Had 2 huge fish finger sarnies for lunch yesterday when dd joined me.

  • Went to Asd.. yesterday and bought 3 ready meals, 2 for freezer, 1 for today so the curry is still in freezer. Hard boiled 5 eggs for fridge so couple today with toast, bread on last legs and instead of using one from freezer, bought a new loaf. Also bought some baby corns and asparagus so had some last night with dinner, new punnet of maushrooms, I do not know why I buy by the punnet as it makes me eat them as I already have some in freezer, but I do like em. Bought just 1 carrot and 3 onions. At least the onions last and I use them regularly. Carrot will bused spiralized with cougette for salads, maybe boiled egg salad tomorrow.

    At the market last week the veg man was almost giving away his punnets, it was raining like crazy. Got 2 punnets strawberries and 2 punnets cherry tomatoes for £2! Got me thinking of doing some soups for the freezer. So in: 4 portions carrot&tomato soup. Out: frozen french beans, peas and in 2 portions indian spiced chickpea soup. Out: chicken breast to add to summer minestrone soup. Out: half tomato ciabatta for tonight.
  • Threw away the last few slices of old bread, it was still OK but over a week old. Have picked some of my home grown leaves and pea shoots - no sign of pods ??? - and the plants I was unsure of I noticed are radishes so I pulled one of them, wil have with boiled eggs, maybe in a tortilla wrap, thats lunch, will get some of the curry n rice out of freezer for dinner, been planning it for days. Out fpr lunch tomorrow so will have light meal later on.

    Really do need to do a freezer and pantry inventory so I know what I have and can plan what to make.
