Yesterday passed uneventfully on the food front, I’m pleased to say!
We haven’t got through a whole lot more food, but I’m confident there will be nothing to show for a food waste post this week.
Little Miss Green created herself a strange sounding breakfast – 2 chopped apples and oats soaked in freshly squeezed orange juice. Well I guess it’s not that strange after all; it’s a bit like muesli without the other grains, nuts, seeds or dried fruit!
Lunch was some of the soup from yesterday. Both little Miss and Mr Green were raving about the broccoli and watercress soup, so they fought over the last portion. The vegetable soup is gradually going down and will be finished for lunch today.
Tea was spaghetti bolognase and Little Miss Green helped herself to two pears and a banana before bed.
The fruit bowl now contains:
- 4 lemons
- 1 grapefruit
- 1 orange
- a couple of bananas one banana
- lots of apples 2 less than yesterday! Few apples
- an avocado
- lots of pears three pears
The only ‘danger’ item is the avocado which will crawl out of the fruit bowl if we don’t eat it today. I need to do something creative with it – probably guacamole or similar which can be served on toast or with carrot sticks.
The onions and garlic from the veg box really are ok, so I don’t need to worry about those and all the odds and ends from the fridge have been used up. There is a handful of blackberries in there from our glut this weekend, so those can be blended into a smoothie or thrown in a bowl with a cooking apple and topped with pastry for pudding.
I’m really pleased with the way things are going and have learned a lot this week. Most notably listing everything and making a plan is working and I should do it more often!
