Dinner yesterday was tasty. I made a marinade for the drumsticks that consisted more or less of lemon marmalade, zest and juice, grain mustard, garlic, balsamic vinegar, lea and perrins and seasoning. Tasty!
Today's food plans
B: muesli, fruit and natural yogurt
L: poached egg on a crumpet
D: Lamb chop, new potatoes, runner beans, mint sauce (home made now the mint is coming up well); strawberries, blueberries and yogurt (might turn this into a yogurt ice cream by freezing the fruit and then zizzing together with the yogurt and a bit of honey)
Ss: fruit x 2
From the freezer
the lamb chop
the runner beans
The frugal factor
Breakfast and lunch are pretty frugal, especially as the muesli is a gift
The lamb is not particularly cheap but it's from a bag of random chops, not dreadfully expensive, that I've had for ages. Heaven alone knows what sort of a life the animal had; I will use up what I've got and then pay more when I want lamb in future. We have a farm shop the other side of town which I know does 'ethical' meat, so I will investigate that when the time comes. The new pots are dear but the runner beans balance that by being last year's garden produce.
No swimming today so no extra calories.
