For the past couple of months we've been using up things from the pantry, initially because we thought the pantry would be refitted this year, but also just to but down the amount of food we have in the house at any time. We haven't been shopping "properly" since Christmas, just to the corner shop for bunny greens and other small bits and bobs, but I am amazed at how well we've managed. There are so many ways to eat not all that unhealthily with what we had lying around, plus the bag of veggie balls we bought from Ikea when we were in Manchester last weekend. Just in time shopping is working for us.
I mentioned recently I have started keeping an emergency jar of pasta sauce (cheap and cheerful from Home Bargains) and a couple of tins of soup/ chilli/ whatever in the pantry, they have been worth their weight in gold this week. I started feeling a bit off colour on Tuesday evening, by Wednesday afternoon I couldn't move out of my chair. Dan's been really busy this week, and going everywhere on his bike due to lack of car so it was a huge relief to everyone that he didn't have to think about cooking when he got home, and that there's no fresh food going to waste while I'm out of action. Just in case shopping works for us too.
That may not make sense, I am still in a fug, I listened to the news yesterday and it all seemed so strange that I'm not fully sure it wasn't just a really weird dream. Is any of this real?
