Whatever’s in the fridge lunch of lettuce, mushroom quiche, beetroot and pickled onions. Dessert is yoghurt, linseeds and pear.
It’s ‘whatever’s left’ day today…. Tortellini, tomato sauce, creme fraiche and Parmesan bake for tonight
I watched the Hungry Britain programme today, recorded last night. It makes me so angry to see Edwina Currie banging on about people making the wrong choices…
Has she forgotten she f*****d the prime minister???? During his ‘back to basics’ campaign!!!
I haven’t forgotten that.
I wouldn’t say that was a particularly good choice by anyone’s standards. An unnecessarily sanctimonious stance, I think. Ugh.
Mushroom quiche made from cheese scraps, reduced mushrooms, 4 eggs (thank you ladies, you’re laying well in the sunshine!), a dollop of creme fraiche, 1/4 pint milk, pinch of dried thyme and a little butter to fry the mushrooms in. Quiches don’t really need a pastry base if you don’t have ingredients to hand, just grease a solid glass, metal or ceramic dish and bake it frittata style. 20 minutes at 180 usually does it.
Hubby getting unreasonably excited over finding £1.75 in change on his bedside table.
Meanwhile, I’m squealing in delight at finding a travel size bottle of bubble bath left over from Christmas (because the alternative would be asking the dogs if they will share their flea shampoo).
Toad in the hole with thyme. Under £1 with our own eggs. 2 eggs, 200g plain flour, a pack of value sausages, teaspoon of dried thyme, a pint of milk and salt and pepper. I put the sausages in the oven for 15 minutes to get the fat flowing and when hot, poured the beaten ingredients over it and baked for another half an hour.
