War on Waste & A Birthday.

I just realised, this blog was a year old on 20th July.
The time as certainly flown by.

I watch the Eat Well for Less on the BBC although it really annoys me, I can't believe how much people spend and how much they throw away.

We are all guilty of buying things and not getting around to using them, but I make sure I do something with them before its too late.
I regularly check the fridge, today I found a few things which needed using up.

Some White Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower & Broccoli.

So I  made Coleslaw.

The rest left over Cabbage was put in the freezer for using in a soup and the leftover Carrots sliced up for the freezer.

The Cauliflower & Broccoli were made into a soup.

We had some for tea and a tub left for another day.
The Cauliflower was from Aldi 39p, 10p reduced Broccoli , a small pot of cream 60p, one onion , veg stock and seasoning, total cost around £1.30. Not bad for two meals.

I also have a bag of lemons to use, so I will make some Lemon Drizzle Cakes.

Nothing gets wasted here.
I wish people would use their imagination a bit more, then it might save them some money.
