  • Old favourite beef bolognese tonight, I've used up some bits and pieces from freezer in it, half a chopped onion, some mushrooms, spinach and grated carrot, plus the end of the bottle of red wine I have in for cooking. Will do with some spaghetti and garlic bread.

    I made a huge bolognaise pasta bake last night so we’re having the rest of that (not convinced pasta bake freezes well) - yesterday with veg, tonight with garlic bread and salad.

    I have some slightly sad veg left to use up before tomorrow’s food shop and I discovered a tin of corned beef in the cupboard …. so I have whipped up a batch of pastry and will make a corned beef and vegetable pie for tonight (and tomorrow). Haven’t made one of those for absolutely ages!

    OH - great brain nudge @kerri_gt!  We've got a pack of chicken/turkey gravy bought for Christmas.  I'll check the BBF date and then maybe we can have it with the Lidl swedish meatballs and chips and pretend we've been to Ikea!!

    Using things up tonight. Skewers with pork cubes. Marinade from a bit of shawarma paste that was left plus tomato ketchup and mango chutney.

    Also rice, lettuce, broccoli and a sauce made from yoghurt, garlic and lemon juice.
