It wasn’t a great start to the day but I was indoors cooking anyway. I did a roast chicken and we had lots of Aldi 29p veg with it – parsnips, carrots and swede. 29p! So cheap. The swede wasn’t a great success, however. I just cooked and mashed it but I think I will find something nicer to do with the other half. It’s not really an inspiring vegetable! Any ideas anyone?
I am still watching my weight so avoided anything hugely calorific like chocolate cake or crumble for pudding. My lot are quite happy with stewed fruit and custard, so that is what we had. I used some of the blackberries and red currants I froze last summer from the garden, mixed with cooking apples.
Later I went and ruined my efforts at the garden centre where I gave in to a rather large chocolate crispy cake with my cup of tea! Mr S had some vouchers for Christmas so we went and bought a few plants. We don’t usually go near the rather expensive cafe but because we didn’t spend any actual cash we caved 😀.
I don’t expect to have lost anything when I get weighed this week! I hope I haven’t put any on though…
