I have been using everything we have this month and still have lots more food in the freezer i am going to see just how long i can make it last , not because we have too but because there are quite a few things i want to get done this year , I want to makeover the front garden, New kitchen at a bargain price and a new cooker. so any money saved will go towards all this.
Yesterday i picked up three pastry flan cases from the co op 10p each , They were a month out of date but i figured they are only flour , fat and sugar so guessed they would be ok ,I made custard with old fashioned custard powder , I just made it a bit thicker than normal , then topped it off with tinned peaches , I don't normally buy convenience foods unless they save me money. It tastes lovely too.
But i wouldn't be without my store cupboards , we are not within walking distance of shops and that together with health issues sometimes prevent us going out .
This is just one cupboard.
This is what i made from my cupboards this month.
I made all this from store cupboard last year too
Some more bargains this week , The chocolate was out of date too but i used that same decision to buy it as the pastry cases that sugar is a preservative
The Art Deco Mirror was £2.00 at a jumble sale last week.
The sign was £2.00 at a local bric a brac market its not original but i don't mind i love it and its fits well with my other signs in the kitchen.
So this got me in the mood for rearranging the shelves in the living room
Then i have been overwintering my begonias with this frame i knocked together out of scrap wood.
