Emptying the Fridge

All weekend we have been chomping our way through the things that had the shortest use by dates in the fridge, or indeed had whizzed past their dates, I have a brilliant sense of smell and always trust my instincts with food rather than just going off what the packet tells me.
I am finding that as we eat our way through the fridge, store cupboard and freezer I am getting more inventive and we are actually eating better. Maybe it's that more thought goes into each meal or that extra bit of effort. It can be SO easy to just grab a pizza from the freezer and toss a handful of oven chips into the oven to cook while the pizza is cooking, but it's not as rewarding. You get much more of a sense of achievement (and a better taste), when you have taken the time to prepare things from scratch or to add some herbs or extra veggies to something. Well I'm finding that I do anyway.
So this was last nights tea, Mediterranean Veg served on a bed of Spicy Cous Cous, with a Chicken Garlic Kiev for Lovely Hubby and a Quorn 'chicken' fillet for me. ~

And this is tonights tea.....purposeful leftovers....now what will I do with this?

  4. Yum that looks good!

    I have been using all the leftovers and bits and pieces in the fridge this past few days as we are going away for a week and they wont be in good condition when I get back.

    Wishing you a lovely day,

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
