My store cupboard is in a shocking state, I am ashamed to say! I had an Approved Food order delivered at the same time as I did my weekly shop, it was a busy evening and everything ended up shoved and squeezed in all over the place.
This is not a good situation for the frugal cook. You need to know what you have in your store cupboard so that you can plan your meals around what is available, use things up and make sure you don’t waste money buying things you already have.
I have a free evening tomorrow so I will stick on the Archers on Radio 4 and get it sorted!
I do know that there is lots if food in the house though, with my stores and the fresh veg in the garden, so this week’s grocery shop should be minimal.
I intend to eat very little meat and will use just enough to stop the troops moaning about rabbit food. They don’t appreciate that I am managing to keep them and my bank balance healthy, and saving the planet at the same time!
There has been a lot on the news recently about western countries eating far too much meat. From an environmental point of view, red meat is particularly bad, as it’s production creates a lot of greenhouse gases and large areas of land are given over to beef and animal feed particularly.
I will tell them this next time they complain and hope it leaks into their consciences somewhere. We can but try!!
