T.T.T. for dinner on a windy day.

What to do for dinner when the wind’s blowing a gale and I don’t feel like going out to do shopping.

1 to 10
Here are my Top Ten Tips:

1. Ask Hubby what he’d like.
2. Check store cupboard, always something that can be botched put together, sautéed, sauced or microwaved.
3. Check fridge, you never know what may be lurking hidden or forgotten in the bottom drawer.
4. Send Hubby out on the cold bow to ferret around in the veg bin for carrots and onions.
5. Select tin of pineapples (in natural juice of course).
6. Find ginger spice, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, garlic and stock cube from other cupboard.
7. Take two pans from cooker drawer.
8. Add rice to one and cover with water and lid. Bring to boil, turn off and let rice swell.
9. Mix teaspoon of flour with fruit juice, add other wet ingredients, stock cube, and sugar. Heat until it begins to thicken.
10. Add pineapples, sliced carrots, onions, garlic and whatever other goodies you may have found in your search. Cook until soft.

Meet SSS:
my Sweet and Sour Something-or-other,  plus a mixed fruit dessert using the other half of the tin of pineapples, some fast ripening strawberries and a handful of blueberries.
sss strawberries-and-blueberries

I steamed my broccoli separately as Hubby is not a fan.
Total syns by the way 2½ being 1 for the sugar, ½ for the flour, and 1 for my share of the pineapples in natural juice.
I added a sprinkling of granola cereal on top of my fruit for some ‘bite’, so that was another syn and a further syn for my pineapple at the bottom.
So the entire meal was less than 5 syns and I’m feeling full.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. Feeling full…of course, that looks wonderful. I make some of my best dishes by digging around in the cupboards and frig !

    That’s a very decent meal conjured out of ‘nothing’. 🙂
