looking in the cupboards
Dear Chris and Maisi and all reading this, hello!
January is generally seen as the austerity month, well it used to be, particularly if a person has had a bit of a 'blow out spend' at Christmas. So...looking in the cupboard and freezer, looking to use up what we have with a view to spending less on the shopping.
so I have strange things ...
bags frozen rhubarb why???
frozen blackberries, mango, raspberries
frozen fish in cornflakes!!
frozen peas, French beans, sweet corn, fish (cod, herring)
frozen nasturtium leaves from the garden (remember those?)
I got 3 meats for £10 this week - mince beef, pork chops, steak and there is some chicken in the fridge.
I also have 3 pumpkins left over from last year. I did have 4 in the cool area near the back door. the forth and the biggest one self imploded and I found a wet gooey mess yesterday.
Maisie and Chris, I do hope that telling you this will give me a bit of motivation to leave the biscuits alone and try eating real food for a bit.
I think I need to eat some real food....
By the turkey has been respectfully given its last rites and laid to rest
A few years ago for Christmas, I did give chutney and merry marmalade (marmalade made with whisky, the whisky put in at the end, just before potting up), I think it went down well with the men in particular.
I did buy a box of jars in November with a view to making the merry marmalade, but I was busy with the work and poorly as you know.
I have 30 odd jars of chutney...the less said about this, the better
looking forward to hearing from you,
