Store Cupboard Meals

In the spirit of 'use it up' I made some mixed bean chilli. Half a large onion and pepper sauted until soft in a small amount of oil. Then I added  some left over sweetcorn and a tin of mixed beans that had been rinsed, drained before adding to the pan together with 25g of red lentils. I had  half a sachet of chilli mix left, this was mixed with water and a dessert spoon of tom puree and seasoned before adding to the other ingredients. This was left on a low simmer for 30 minutes. I decided to freeze as the flavours will deepen and we can either have with rice or baked potatoes.

Yesterday I used half a tin of new potatoes and half a tin of sweetcorn.  in a chicken & mustard dish I grabbed from the freezer. The other half will be roasted ready to go with the very simple french bread pizza. Place the sliced part baked french stick in oven for 5 minutes, the top with half a jar of salsa, tomato slices,  pepper, mushrooms and cheese.
Next place  one third of a tin of pineapple chunks in a dish, add sliced apple and orange. Voila ...Simple fruit salad. The remaining pineapple went in the freezer, some more will go into fruit salad and the rest will become  pineapple sponge cake later in the week.  



Tins, jars and packets all come in very handy. I've noticed a few out of date bits and pieces while I've been going through the cupboards that I will be looking to use up asap.

25 scubs bags have gone to Colchester hospital today. I will be making some more later this week. Bye for now. Tx

  3. I think it's wonderful that you're making scrub bags for the NHS. I've had a look to see if something similar is needed up here but can't find anything. Maybe they've been inundated with offers and don't need any more - I hope so. xx

    1. Do you have Facebook? if so look up FOR THE LOVE OF SCRUBS. Lots of companies, GP practices are asking for help for their staff to be able to stay safe.

    3. There is a huge range of people needing bits and pieces. Do you have any old bedding. I used A duvet cover and sheet as they are poly cotton and will wash at 60° which is a must.

    4. Yes, been on FB but majority of requests seem to be down south and they seem to have an army of people sewing. I'll keep poking around to see what I can find. xx

  5. Your dishes sound delicious! We have been using some old things in the cupboards which is great- we used some self-raising flour from 2015 (shocking- how had we missed it!?) and some Thai Green curry paste from the same year! The scrub bags sound brilliant!

  6. This is more like it, Tania. Delicious though his recipes are, I'm not sure what Jamie Oliver thinks we store in the kitchen cupboards. X
