Dan was working from home yesterday, so I spent a bit of time in the kitchen, something I don't seem to have done recently, who knows what we've been eating. I needed to fine a spice storage solution after being smacked on the head by a jar of mustard. Luckily I kept hold of a plastic tub that would no longer lock after Dan microwaved it with the lid on. A perfect fit for under the little shelf to store the lesser used spices.
My Aldi flowers are still going strong, I removed the less than great blooms and swapped the vase for a bottle.
This week is a busy one by our standards so I did a bit of cooking so I don't have to think about it for a while. I even managed to fit a couple of things in the freezer box.
I made three portions of cauliflower curry (top), using the last of the 20p curry paste I bought a while ago, one portion is in the freezer, we ate one last night, and there's one for tomorrow. I used up a load of mushrooms in a chestnut and lentil stew, one for tonight, one in the freezer. I've also written a menu plan, we're out and about a little bit so a plan should prevent waste.
