Add a bit of crunch

I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen this week, and apart from my bread pudding and greengage and blackberry crumble (even if greengages are not speed fruit 😦 ) I have found a way to use up the crumbs from savoury biscuits or crisps. I suppose you could think that’s sad, but read on!

MSM is quite partial to her cheese crackers or crisps, and the latest thing to tempt her taste buds are Cracker Crisps.
If you haven’t tried them, they are delicious, especially this flavour, and equate to about one syn each.
Anyway, MSM has a container in which she puts her savoury crunchies, and I was a little bored with my salad, so pinched a couple of crumbs to sprinkle on top of my lettuce and mayo.
I have no idea what the exact calories or syns were, but not that many as it was only crumbs afterall, but it was really nice!
So I guess rather than ditch the crumbs left at the bottom of the packet, why not keep them in a container to crunch up your salad (or crush your own).

Just a thought to brighten up an otherwise dull dinner.

I shall be missing SW again tonight as we will probably be late back.  The home scales have been jittery and undecided, so I’m hoping to have had the equivalent of another ‘same’ week.
Just one new pic to show willing in the food stakes as there was a special offer on king prawns last week.

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. I like the idea of keeping the bottom of the package crumbs for a little crunch. I will have to try it for myself!
