    The Simple Bare Necessities feat. Gratitude & Recipes 27th Oct 16 at 9:11 AM
    Hello

    I think that the time may be right to start a new diary. So much has changed since I started my 2nd diary, which can be found HERE and we're a whole lifetime away from my first diary, which can be found HERE

    Whilst my first 2 diaries concentrated on living a simple life, concentrating on debt-avoidance for my (then) DP and I, we had a 'bit' of a tumultuous 2015, which meant that my DP became my DH and we 'Two' became 3, with the safe arrival of Baby Greying

    Our focus has changed dramatically. Far from contemplating 'downsizing' (a bit of a misnomer in terms of our house, honestly, I've been in bigger 'flats'! ) and somehow achieving early retirement; we now have a future focus that needs us to be super fit and active for as long as we can be. Also, as older first time parents, we are both committed to try to be in Baby Greying's life for as long as possible, without being a burden. Because whilst being older does have some distinct advantages when applied to parenting, there is no denying there's a downside too..............

    Also, the economic climate is changing once again. Blame it on whatever you like, but there is always some reason why prices of x, y or z rise. There is always a reason why, when you find a way to combat inflation; someone comes along and changes the rules of the game. A good example of this is our wood burner. When we had it installed, we had access to a goodly amount of free wood, we both had the time and energy to process it and we could live with parts of the house being cold. Forward 10 years; more people have stoves - and are all chasing that 'free' wood, 'purchased' logs are now very expensive around here and we've no time to stack nor chop wood. It's become easier, and 'as expensive' to flick the on switch for the central heating....... a cleaner in-house option, that can keep the whole house a manageable temperature and Baby Greying at a safe and comfortable temperature.

    Now it does matter if our hair-brained money saving wheezes make our teeth fall out or our toes freeze orf, because it impacts on our ability to look after Baby Greying in the now and in the future. Our health and well-being is a priority - but still not at any price. We want to have it all,;but with only a modest budget available, we're gonna have to get creative. I rarely shop in the 'big 4' supermercados. We purchase some things from mrL, some from mrAl. A smattering from mrW, mrT and m&$ (bananas mostly), with h0me bargins and h3ron f00ds being the sources of our regular shopping. We also have access to a food co-operative and I occasionally get to go to the next city along to get bulk purchases of pulses and spices.

    Our focus now (that we've got over the shock of Baby Greying ) is to move on from Greying Towers. The long and short of it boils down to it not being the right environment for us to bring up a child here. There are nicer places. We need to find them. So a move is on the cards. However, some renovation of the towers is necessary, and whilst funding has always been an issue; now we have the added upheaval of trying to do work around a baby. Not impossible, but not ideal. It's also still proving impossible to find reliable tradespeople. We're looking for a plumber, again

    The one thing that I've come to recognise with age is that there is always 'good stuff' in every life. Even when you're really going through the mill. There are good people, who say or do good things to help you. There are the wonders of nature to take in at every turn. There is humour everywhere, even if you have to look under a few rocks to find it. It is important to be thankful, even on the dark days. And I try to do that - and find writing it down, in my online diary a good exercise in stopping. And thinking.

    We like food at Greying Towers. I write about it alot. I take pictures of me tea. We're vegetarian (at present) and so vegetables feature. Alot. When it's gifted HG produce, it's even better

    So, do you fancy climbing aboard for the new adventure. Taking some time out to Fall apart in my backyard with Me, DH and BG?

    Aw catching up on here is just lovely reading.

    Keep warm folks xxxx

    Thanks for the dumpling recipe GP - I have to say I tend to revert to packet mix RT - I never use enough suet to justify buying it and then feed it to the birds. The packets are cheap and whilst I don't buy much premixed, they serve the dumpling craving purpose here beautifully. Although I'm sure I could FREEZE the suet - maybe one day I'll be brave and try to do my own.

    How did I miss your dumpling advice GP?!?

    Thank-you for the link! I have no clue what fat Scottish Aunty used but I do remember how dry the dough was so your advice is spot on! Makes sense as the moistness must come from being steamed on top of the stew. As we never buy moo but do buy cluck (more budget friendly), I shall give dumplings a go using something like solid Crisc0 - I think it's called Tr3x on this side of the pond!

    Pips if I remember correctly, you can freeze and then grate solid fats, and then return them to the freezer to use as needed - easier to incorporate into cooking without having to defrost first!

    rtandon - iirc - isn't tr3x vegetarian? Or you can get a veggie version of it? I can't remember what recipe it was...... I'm thinking pastry for mince pies (sweet) that Memorygirl used to post, and I know she used tr3x, because meat-eaters or veggies could then eat the pies (I assume no suet in the mincemeat - or veggie suet) , so I'm pretty sure it would work dandy. When I get the recipe right, even olive oil works to make dumplings, so it doesn't have to be full-blown meaty suet, if you don't want it to be hth.

    Good Morning

    I'm not too sure if we've had lots of snow in the night, or some snow and lots of blow(ing) about of that which was here already But there is quite a bit of it about.

    I would have achieved a nsd yesterday, but DH called into mrL on the off-chance, and picked up some bread and milk. So I owe him for those purchases, but currently have no change, as I've spent nowt of my March budget.

    Tea last night was very much a hodge-podge. We had fish fingers, which are a Greying Family favourite (highbrow we ain't ), and which BG calls 'fingy's'. Which given they are described merely as 'omega 3' probably aptly describes the 'any fing' in them......... I cooked up some baked tatties, the last of the broccoli all combined (mrAl & mrL bags - the mrAl bags had a lot of bits.......) and a tin of mushy peas. Either mrL have changed their supplier for mushy peas, or I got an 'end of shift' tin, which was definitely more 'mush' that 'YPeas'........

    Tea this evening will be bottom of the freezer curry - who knows what is in there???? - with dhal and rice.

    Can't think of owt else to witter on about - apart from I shall probably be spending very little by keeping out of the shops, and keeping out of the great outdoors generally

    I enjoyed my catch up of your day in the snow. I am glad you took the camera, pictures of my two playing in the snow are still treasured and smiled over, over 30 years later.

    I have just been perusing Jack Monroes blog, and discovered they have switched supermarkets, to Mr. A.
    Mr L or Mr Al probably would not meet the needs of a vegan household, but it makes sense. They are off Twitter anyway, had this been the case a year or two ago, the latest book would probably be long published.
    I crowdfunded a library copy, which is not on the catalogue online yet, but hopefully it will have been sent.
    Have a lovely day. Our snow is keeping me in.
    PS.
    Something that may benefit some, and I am spreading the word, if you are sent a cheque, and have no bank locally, you can now pay it in online via an online banking app and a Smartphone camera.

    I did this yesterday. Could not pay in a Premium Bond win, but I did pay in a cheque that has been sat in my waist pack since December, waiting for me to cycle past the bank and stop, rather than just cycle past. It is very easy to do.
    EDIT The MSE apostrophe curse has struck my phone. Hence Monroe minus apostrophe s.

    I'm obviously behind the times - I thought that mrA was advocated long-time since? I didn't realise Al & L had crept in? I knew mrS had gone by the wayside, for a variety of reasons, that included a housing relocation. I think a vegan would stay hungry relying on our mrA. They don't really stock 'food'.

    I'm also confused - is the crowd-funded book published, or not? This is another budget concious book, isn't it? Or is it wholly vegan? I'll admit to not keeping up with events totally, since posting got intermittent, I've kinda lost track - and I'm not a follower of anyone on any other type of social meedja, so easily lose track if it's not totally food related.........

    Good Evening

    rtandon - we didn't have as much of interest in our freezer I dug out some mugg (scroll down for recipe), lots of dhal and boiled up some basmati. It was a 'good enough' tea

    Well, we did end up getting out and about today - for which I am grateful. I felt better going out with BG and DH rather than on my own. We picked up the shopping, that was on the list - due to it being the start of the month - and I was surprised at how well stocked the shops were. Delivery drivers must have made a supreme effort to get around. DH had picked up some things from the supermercado this morning - again, 'list' stuff due to it being the month start. So money has been spent.

    I've had some nice communications from friends - good to see what everyone else is up to and how they are getting along

    I had a snooze myself this afternoon - DH was looking after BG - who then went for a snooze themselves anyway, I ended up falling asleep in the chair - awkwardly - twice and then managed to move to the sofa and had a few extra winks before DH batted on about needing to wash socks..........

    DH finally listened to me and bled a radiator that has had an air lock in it for at least a day. Apparently I was 'right' and he sat there for 2 minutes getting the air out........ And yes, dear reader, I could have done it myself, but...........

    Right, today I am grateful for these 3 things;

    Getting out and about with my family

    sufficient stocks of what I wanted

    us all staying upright!


    Ta for popping by. Appreciated.

    Aw, that's great news pinkypig - but it is gien that deserves our thanks and praise, as they originally talked about val3r1an and hops in relation to what we were experiencing.

    Yes, definitely better here too - although I can't say 'brighter' as the sky is grey and overcast We have had some rain - which has removed some snow and made mucho slush. We'll be for it if we have another hard freeze.

    The weather has disrupted yet another weekend, I cannot deny. We're into March already, and have done precisely nothing on the house The decluttering is ongoing, and ruthless is my middle name when doing it, but passing it on to chazzers or elsewhere has been curtailed by the weather. And I'd be the first to say that we've not had it half as bad as many - so I'm not complaining, as such, just airing frustration I think.

    Tea this evening is going to be toad in the hole, using some of the chickpea and mushroom sausages that i made from YS'd mushies the other day. I need to roast some parsnips (mrAl S6) and some carrots too, so that I can have a bash at another 'flavour' of the savoury bread recipe. There will also be mash, roasties, veg and gravy for tea. A proper 'roast' for a change, as we don't need the convenience factor.

    I actually sat down and watched a prog DH had recorded for me last night - it was the BBC2 programme about Rome that AGD and Georgio did in January. I've watched 1 episode of 2. I fell in love with the markets though - such produce - in the middle of the city too...... mmmm.

    I'm hopeful we'll get out for a toddle later. Today should be another nsd - we don't need anything.

    Ta for popping by. Appreciated.

    Mmm, toad in the hole

    We are reaching the stage in our house move where we should probably start eating real food again We've survived for a week (in fact longer, as we weren't cooking much in the last few days at the old house) by foraging - toast, porridge, oatcakes, ryvitas, cheese, raw carrots etc, but it would be nice to do something proper soon... We did have some tasty soup one day But I shall be inspired by your cheery cooking to try something else

    Of course, our stocks of actual *food* are dwindling and becoming more bizarre, as we haven't been able to get to a supermarket since Tuesday, and weren't aware at that point that we would be housebound for a week But we have lots of onions and potatoes, a couple of tins of beans, a tin of tomatoes, some mushrooms and cabbage, so we won't starve yet

    Might knock up a curry or something

    Need to start thinking about meals for work too and start thinking about WORK in general Feels very far away

    Glad you were able to get out and about Greying even if your house efforts are being hampered by the weather - I know the feeling

    Hey up all Cheery I'm sure you'll do grand and enjoy being holed up a bit more you'll certainly not starve.

    And, given our snowed in for 4 and a bit days, the shops round here look like some sort of zombie apocolipic event so well done to your drivers GP and cheery don't be surprised if there's not much on the shelves.

    It honestly looks like some kind of shop emptying rampage escapade this side, no sign of milk or fresh bread at all never mind all the empty shelves.

    Although I think anyone veggie or vegan be fine, clearly there hasn't been a run on anything green, vegetable based or crunchy.

    Good Evening

    Yes, it's a strange one - bread and milk, being bought up in any weather scenario or worse...... It is interesting that DH was more worried about getting enough bread and milk (not hoarding), than I was. Although I appreciate that it's more important to him, as he eats/uses both. I can quite happily go without milk, BG doesn't like it and as for bread, well, we do eat bread, but not masses, and can certainly do without for a period of time. Still, I don't mind folk purchasing stuff, as long as they use it. It's when it's bought - for whatever reason - and then thrown away when the 'crisis' period is over. There are people in war-torn areas and disaster hit parts of the world, who don't have that choice.

    We got out and about for a toddle and a breath of fresh air It was the right thing to do The weather wasn't brilliant, but we were wrapped up warmly and even though it came to rain, lightly, on our return, we were dry in our waterproofs.

    I can legitimately claim a nsd today

    Tea was as slated. I think - nay hope - that it can be deemed our 'end of winter feast' as if we have to eat like that again before next autumn, I would need to invest in considerably bigger pants, or do alot more of this The 'sausages' weren't the best idea for toad in the hole - they were a bit too like...... stuffing? in the yorkie batter mix. Veggie sausages (bought) are a better option. But it reminded me that they do make great sausage rolls, and I have some puff pastry in the freezer, so I'm going to definitely make some so that we can have them for picnics when the better weather arrives Roast potatoes and roast parsnips and mashed potato are always a good idea, along with steamed carrots and broccoli. MrAl onion gravy completed the feast. I did not make, nor need, pud

    Today I am grateful for these 3 things;

    BG's continued development
    - it's new actions/words everyday at the minute

    A walk out and about, listening to birds, pointing things out and striding with confidence

    The right clothing and footwear


    Ta for popping in and chatting. Appreciated.

But as I say, I don't have a problem with folk buying foodstuffs that they use (at any time), it's when it's bought mindlessly.

    Right, Monday morn. Another week has left the starting gate.

    I have some bits and pieces on my shopping list that could be picked up today. It'll certainly get us out and about. It looks like the weather might be OK today - the sun is certainly rising, long may it stick around.

    Tea this evening is not yet set - there is a gap in my planner. I'll have a think on and come up with something, as we've sufficient food. I think I was just cautious of allocating things, just in case we're not out of the woods weatherwise yet.

    Other than that, I'm not sure I've got owt else to report today.

    Ta for popping in. Appreciated.
