Mrs Green recycles breakfast
From the more ‘usual’ plastic bottles, tin cans and aluminium foil to the more unusual:
crisp packets, toothpaste tubes and broken plates for example…
I’m also well known for my love of viewing today’s leftovers as tomorrow’s ingredients and squirrelling things in the ‘fridge ready to be used at a moments notice.
I learned through you lovely people that you could reheat chips , at Grandma Green’s Birthday party I saved pizza and chicken from landfill by bringing it home to eat, and I once reheated some porrage with no ill effect.
This week Little Miss Green and I hit a bit of a battle over the breakfast table.
She’d suffered from eyes-bigger-than-belly syndrome and left half a bowl of porrage. <gasp>
I told her she’d have to finish it off when she came in from school to which she audibly groaned.
Funnily enough, that very evening she didn’t WANT anything when she came in from school… Strange that; as normally she walks through the door with hollow legs that need feeding…
Being a woman who can bide her time, I ceased my opportunity after dinner, when Little Miss Green asked what else there was to eat:
I went off to the kitchen, found the left over porrage, added a couple of squares of chocolate, a dash of cream, a squirt of agave syrup and some vanilla extract then reheated it.
I presented it to her with a flourish…
“What is it?” she asked, peering into the bowl.
“Chocolate pudding.” I replied, handing her a spoon.
And after an empty bowl and a smile on her face, I don’t think she was any the wiser
What ‘leftover’ have you used as an ingredient recently?
