Good morning.

It worked.  I'm saying no more but, oh, the relief!  :-)

What else worked was what I did with the tuna/cottage cheese.
I had about 120g of drained tuna (flakes, not chunks or steaks) and I topped that up to 200g with 0% cottage cheese and mixed it together.  I then added a bit of salt and pepper, about 10 mls of balti curry paste (allowed) and 10g of mango chutney (not really allowed but tough and from Aldi so not dreadfully costly).  A shake of lemon juice and I mixed it all together and had it with salad veg.  It was filling but the tuna was much nicer, not dry and it was flavoursome.  I shall do that again.

Today's plans
B:  muesli, natural yogurt and a bit of stevia
L:  chicken and chickpea soup (recipe here)
D:  sardine temptation (adapted from something on a River Cottage programme), broccoli, fruit yogurt
Ss:  apples

From the freezer
The chicken, stock and chickpeas for the soup
Bit of cheese for the sardine dish

The frugal factor
The muesli was a gift
The chicken is leftovers with stock from a boiled up carcass.  I'm nearly out now and it's proven so useful, I might buy a chicken, roast it and freeze the lot in portions to replenish my supplies.
Sardines in cans are not expensive.


  1. I love it when an idea, or a recipe works out 😊

    1. Me too - it's very satisfying, isn't it? :-)
