We decided to do to Aldi at Grantham and do the shopping. OH changed his appointment to next week when he has to be in toen anyway.
Aldi was very busy, much as usual, it was quite a shock when we got the bill, but I have been using stuff from the store cupboard which we needed to replace and I have also started the winter stores as well. The lady on the till told us that the store in Bingham, which is only 7 miles from here, is to open before March next year. Work has already started to clear the site.
Supper is prepped OH is in the garden. I am going to have half an hour with a book, get my breath back, so to speak.
There will be some pictures appearing on the blog of plates of food, if you read the comments from yesterday you will see why.
Todays offering is sausage and bean casserole, with mash, carrots and calebrese. Dessert is a steamed lemon sponge with some cream.
No idea why its done this, we do not eat dessert before our main course. Steamed lemon sponge.
Two small portions of the sponge. The left over pudding will be used tomorrow and friday. I cover the pudding with an upturned pudding bowl, keep it in the fridge, 1 minute in the micro on medium and its reheated.
Main course, 2 ice cream scoops of mashed potato, carrots and calebrese 2 sausages, cooked with some left over bean salad. Sauce is stock cube, chopped garlic and tomato puree.
One way to cut down what you eat is to use a smaller plate, that way your brain thinks there is more food there because the plate is smaller.
I will post pictures of our suppers for the next few nights.
