The new Blog is really keeping me on track, making me stop for a moment and re-think everything to do with food.
When you have little or no money to actually spend on food you don't waste a single thing.
Earlier when rolling out slightly thinner the pastry in the pack above, which has been languishing in the freezer for I don't know how long, I did my usual thing of putting all the tiny trimmings, and there really weren't many, straight into the bowl to take out to the chickens later. I quickly pulled myself up short.
Luckily the bowl was clean so I fished them back out squidged them together in my fingers and rolled the little ball of dough out flat, taking a large pinch of grated cheese I pulled the pastry up around it and then re-rolled so the cheese was trapped in the middle, then cutting out with one of my smallest biscuit cutters I managed to make five of the cutest little savoury biscuits you ever did see.
A quick brush over with a trace of milk and a sprinkle of Paprika and sesame seeds and I had a perfect little snack for later .... unfortunately the chickens missed out on their favourite little treat!!
I've put a link in the right hand sidebar to get you (and me) over there quicker.
