Way too many carbs!


Let myself down with this weeks food waste. Very unhappy with taking me eye off the ball. There was a pack of 12 scones which we gobbled up early in the week, mostly. yesterday I discovered three rock hard scones left in a hidden area of the fridge.

Someone took a pack of pitta bread out of the freezer and left it in the fridge. Most of them got eaten but two turned to stone :(  And I didn't even think about blitzing them for breadcrumbs as I thought they might be on the edge of blue and furry too!

There are two lemons that have seen better days too but I will microwave them and make them give up their juice for me!

The reason that I am sure this got overlooked is that my husband cooked quite a bit these week. Each time he cooked he cooked Bulgar wheat as the carb. We are all a little sick of it and feeling stuffed. The last thing we can feel like eating in between meals is more carbs!

So I am not buying any more bulgar week for a week or two. Next week is all about veggies, fruit, lovely light salads. Anything light.


  1. Never thought about microwaving lemons to get more juice, but it makes perfect sense. Will have to try that next time. Good luck next week. Here's hoping for no waste.

  2. Thank you. Yes, am cracking down again this coming week :)

  3. That reminds me, I have 2 heads of sad lettuce in the fridge. I must make this a salad week.


My life

My wonderful husband has died. He was in hospital for some weeks but this was very unexpected. I won’t be reading or writing for the foresee...
