Tuesday’s Numbers

I am enjoying thinking about how I can create 8-days of eating joy from my kitchen cupboard and the contents of my fridge.

I think that for tomorrow’s evening meal I am going to make a lasagne using up some old sheets of lasagne, some lentils cooked with 10 calorie tomato soup sachets, and a half-fat cheese sauce gleaned from the fridge.
Tomorrow’s lunch can be mexican-style potatoes cooked with salsa and topped with melted 1/2 fat cheese and guacamole. I have pudding rice for tasty rice-puddings, lots of dried skimmed milk, semolina etc. so it shall be a stodgy week, and I must balance this out by cycling everywhere!

Today’s numbers:

WW points (to be) consumed: 19
£s to be spent: £1 on a cup of tea tonight at The Global Cafe

Menu: Muesli and skimmed milk for breakfast, hazelnuts and coffee as mid-morning snack, sausage casserole left over from last night for lunch, with a wholemeail pitta bread, a sachet of soup and a cup of tea for supper.

Free enhancements to eating on a budget:

This plate was one I made a looooooong time ago in one of those paint-your-own-pottery places; the silly words and joyous colourscheme still add wonder to the experience of eating toast.

Magic knitters* toast

*for knitters, to enhance the knitting experience with happy crumbs of love

I am sure that I have committed some sort of apostrophe crime in this design, but happy crumbs of love belong to a general philosophy that embraces mistakes and mess as part of the joy of being alive.

Also, because I am cleaning up my hard-drive to make room for another season of The Hub, I have decided to give you some tasty files and links. Check out the bubbling mud sound I recorded last year for the sound diaries website, and a snippet of my interview with Richard Martin from Filkins Mill, talking about Cotswold Sheep; posted below.

    If you have semolina, then I recommend this:

    I skip the cheese (because I never have it on hand) and the herbs (ditto) and it’s nice with a simple veggie broth. 🙂

    It’s like the Masterchef invention test!

    Well strictly speaking there should be an apostrophe either before or after the ‘s’ in Knitters (depending on whether the toast belongs to one or many knitters) but I guess you can
    say that the asterisk is a stand-in for the apostrophe. Don’t beat yourself up over it, in other words!
