As I have been having fun this week using up the grape harvest, this week we will be mainly eating grape jelly! I haven’t made any jam for ages. In truth, I hadn’t even thought about preserving grapes in this way, but someone suggested it on Facebook, so I thought ‘Why not?’ I love pottering around in the kitchen when I have the time and I really didn’t want to waste them. This week’s frugal meal plan continues to use up odds and ends and keep waste to a minimum.
I am determined to have an easy week though, so won’t be doing major cooking whilst I am working.
This week’s frugal eating meal plan
Leftovers from my dinner party: Cashew nut and mushroom loaf, roast potatoes, vegetables and gravy. Apple and almond pudding with home made custard.
Smoked mackerel with new potatoes and salad.
As above. I can save my energy to do a bit of yoga or just chill with a glass of wine :).
We have various odds and ends of fish in the freezer and a can of anchovies in the cupboard. I think I will make Delia Smith’s utterly delicious baked fish with potatoes. A simple but filling and tasty dish.
A risotto ‘ready meal’ from a large batch cooked last week and stored in the freezer, with whatever veg or salad needs using.
We always seem to have at least one meal based around eggs. I just love them in any form, but will probably have them fried with some home made chips from my Air Fryer . I am still using this regularly and it really does make lovely chips!
