The sun is shining and there's a gentle breeze moving the branches. It's very lovely!
Yesterday's meals were also very lovely. I posted about lunch and I cooked the fish for dinner by simply spraying the smoked basa with a little oil and adding some lemon juice before wrapping and baking. So tasty!
Today's meal plans:
B: strawberry overnight oats
L: chicken tikka, salad
D: peach and chickpeas curry - a Jack Monroe recipe:
then maybe home made banana ice cream as I have a bag of frozen banana that ought to be used up or watermelon slices
S: apples x 2
From the freezer
Maybe fruit for breakfast, if the fresh strawberries don't play
Chicken for the tikka
Chickpeas for the curry
The frugal factor:
The muesli cost me nothing and I might have a few strawberries left,I haven't looked yet.
Jack says the curry costs 22p. It may be more now but it is undoubtedly good value. I may or may not cook some rice to go with it but rice isn't going to up the cost much.
The chicken for the tikka is the most expensive but I still have a bit of not-kind chicken to use up so I will use that, given that it has to be used or chucked and I'm not doing the latter. I'm using some tinned tikka mix that I found at the back of a cupboard. It still smells fine so should be OK.
The bananas were from a bag of over-ripe bananas on YS, bought a while ago that I peeled and froze. I shall zizz them with some lemon juice, a bit of natural yogurt and, if needed, some sweetener (but I doubt that last will be required).
