Daughter was looking for something to eat for brunch. She looked in the fridge and declared there was nothing at all to eat in the house. Now I know the fridges are quite bare as it's Sunday and I shop on a Monday so like to have the fridges empty and cleaned for the new load of shopping. Here are my fridges
Her brunch ended up being a quesadilla made with two leftover wraps 3 lonely mushrooms from the fridge, half an onion, half a tin tuna and some cheddar cheese. Hubby had the remaining tuna in a sandwich for his lunch.
A small portion of mashed potato went to the birds as it had been lurking at the back of the fridge for too many days forgotten about. The small portion of rice and the bit of a sandwich daughter left were mixed with some chicken fat scraped from my stock. This is food also for the birds. Hate to see the poor little things scrounging for scraps in this cold weather. The bits of leek trimmings were added to a pan of pony carrots I cook for the dog to bulk out his food.
Daughters boyfriend did not stay for tea last night so I did not use all the minced lamb when making burgers. This mince will be mixed with the beef mince to make a bolognese. Some leftover tomatoes will be used in the bolognese along with a few roasted peppers. I'm going to use what's left of the bolognese in a pie with some gravy mixed in for a meal through the week.
The rind left from some Grana Padano cheese was added to the bolognese to add extra flavour. It will be fished out at the end of cooking.
The large pan in the fridge had leftover leek and potato soup in it. I had a portion for lunch and a portion went in the freezer. That's my fridges cleared of a lot of odds and ends and all washed down ready for tomorrows shop.
