Saturday, 24-03-18

Good morning!  We're 3/4 of the way through March, incredible as it sounds.  Where's the time going?

Today's plans:
B:  porridge with natural yogurt and stevioa
L:  ham and salad
D:  turkey casserole; fruit yogurt
Ss:  apple and orange

From the freezer:
The turkey and the stock are both from the freezer

The frugal factor
Porridge, obviously, and home made natural yogurt so that's pretty frugal too as well as being delicious.
The turkey and the stock are both Christmas dinner leftovers from a turkey that was a gift.  I bought a stew pack as that's better than getting all the bits individually - I stood there in the shop and worked it all out as it isn't always.  There will be some to freeze too which will be OK as it will have been well boiled up!

All I will do is soften the onions, add the rest of the veg (carrot, parsnip and swede plus some sweet potato), saute that, add the stock (and maybe more water and a stock cube) and herbs and simmer it all until the veg is soft, then add the chunks of turkey and give them ten or fifteen minutes, stirring carefully so they don't break up.  That's about it.  Rustic and tasty!


  1. We made beer bread yesterday for soup. Very good. 375 ml of beer, 2cups of sr flour. Perfect for the pumpkin soup. Nice cakey, porous texture too.

  2. Lovely food. Franny and Danny's beer bread sounds good too.

  3. Beer bread sounds delicious. Is it just SR flour and beer?
