I’ve found a new favourite thing!
Had a migraine come on in the late afternoon. I’d only had a couple of hours sleep the previous night which didn’t help. When I got home, I lay on the sofa for a couple of hours, then went to bed before 9. All gone this morning.
Another job done
So today, another beautiful one, Mike and I emptied out the summer house to put in a couple of industrial shelf units, then put everything back in again. I did most of it as he’s struggling today. He has been infected again by someone sharing a cold. Right now he’s sitting on the sofa with a scarlet nose having just had a cough that sounded really painful. Hope I don’t get it.
Lots of Vegetables
On Tuesday, the U3A cookery group came round. As the recommendations for numbers of vegetables and fruit have been changed, I thought we could explore some salads. We did the Barley Salad, the Avocado, Orange and Tomato Salad and something I found on Green Kitchen. They call it Roasted Rainbow Root Tangles , they are absolutely scrummy! We just did the tangles, not the other things on their plate. I’ll be costing them up shortly and making a meal with them. Think I’ve found a new favourite thing!
We spiralised them on Tuesday because it’s fun and I have a spiraliser. I’ll also test them by grating them on an ordinary box grater. They would go with lots of things to make a delicious main. My pictures are such rubbish compared to Davids I had the remaining veg for dinner this eve and I’d just piled them all in a metal cooking dish, not in the artistic nests we did on Tuesday. They were delicious, but didn’t make a great photo
Take care of your family and your budget
Before putting together the meal planners, Lesley surveyed what was needed. Of the existing 14 meal plans, most are for 2 people so can be sized up or down. Others are for 1, or 4 people
