The biscuit tin ......
... is actually empty and I'm thinking of using it for the dried dog food.
The dogs are on three different types of dried food at the moment. Suky is on her special diet food, which is tasty and not a lot of volume but it fills her up and she seems to be doing really well on it. The other two are on Iams for volume and a few Bakers meaty chunks to keep Rosy's interest, it seems to be working and for the first time in ages she is really enjoying her meals.
Having three open bags on the go is not ideal, so containers on the worktop with a scoop in each speeds things up no end and it means the bags can be sealed up and kept in the cupboard, thus keeping the food fresher and the worktop neater.
The 'hoiking out the cupboards' title of this post relates to me emptying out all our food cupboards and getting rid of anything that does not fit in with our healthier eating habits. I found a gift tin of shortbread biscuits yesterday and between us we ate them all, I'm suffering the consequences today. Knowing how easily I am swayed by things I love but shouldn't have I have decided to check things with a finer tooth comb and jettison what I know deep down I just cannot eat.
Wheat and milk seem to be the culprits that really give me a gippy tummy, nothing life threatening but why make myself feel yuk, when with a bit of forward planning and a lot of common sense I can feel soooooo much better.
Before I indulged and made myself feel bleugh, we had taken ourselves off to the car boot sale in Rhuddlan. There was so much tat and junk there but we managed a few bargains. I just couldn't resist this book it was only a pound and after standing there for five minutes amazed at the drawings in it thought I might as well just cough up the money and finish reading it at home.
The firelighters we use to start the outdoors bonfires and as we had just used the last one on Saturday these popped up at just the right time. With a new dish for Ginger and a couple of packets of seeds also tucked in our bag we headed off home just £3 lighter and with full tummies, as before we left we crossed the road and had a cooked breakfast in Sainsbugs cafe. It made a pleasant change on a Sunday morning.
Have you managed to get any boot sale bargains recently?
