I thought I would start a thread for us to all share our ideas on how to use every scrap of food or share a recipe.
I have realised over the last couple of weeks, how much food we wasted or threw out I have been packing sandwiches for my menfolk to go to work, so that they didn't have to pop in anywhere to buy anything, so with that in mind:-
The left over crust ends from the loaves I have been making bread and butter pudding or turning into bread crumbs.
Bananas that had gone too far I made a banana tea bread.
Bagels looking tired, I drizzled with olive oil and toasted, topping with a chopped tomato/cucumber mix and a bit of grated cheese melted.
My fresh meat I have split into smaller packs and mince I have split into 3 lots rather than 2, thinking I can bulk with lentils etc.,
We are looking in fridge at what is nearest its best before date, then planning a meal around it. Last night it was chicken sausages, and tonight I'm making a big lasagne which will do for a couple of days
Our.local farm shop is making up drive in vegetable, salad and fruit boxes, it’s a great idea, a good selection plus you can add extras if you want, I don’t normally buy cabbage but there’s a fine specimen in my box today, so tonight’s dinner was bangers, mash and fried onions, the mash has now been upgraded to colcannon, haven’t had it for years, really looking forward to it
I have flour . I have my flour in separate plastic boxes and always have spares in the freezer. I have made a cakes this morning, one for our daughter one for me. She was bringing me some grow bags, I think that I got the best deal. I have also made some bread rolls using a Delia Smith recipe, they were lovely and soft. I recommend the recipe. Next time I need any, I will try one from Hugh F.W's book.
Jazzy, the problem with baking is the end product! Someone has to eat it and this means me. Does anyone else eat out of boredom? I keep looking in the fridge, nope nothing different to when I looked 5 minutes ago.
