The weather turned cold earlier in the week so I raided the freezer and found some frozen root veg that was sufficient for a three day stew.
The day before, we had chicken curry sprinkled with coconut which was pretty good.
Now the weather had turned hot and sunny so cooking is the last thing on my mind, new cooker or not.
To be honest, the thought of food and what to have for dinner is getting boring again.
Shopping is a chore, and shopping for food a war zone of frayed tempers and depleting shelves, especially in this heat.
In the supermarket today, I walked through the door and there was a display stand in the centre of the foyer. Either side was a customer with an empty trolley…… and no room to get past either of them. Did they move? No, just glared at me when I said ‘Excuse me….’.
We did some basic shopping, spending just over £22, but that included 12 cartons of milk, 2 boxes of cereal, eggs, bananas, dried apricots, bread, cheese and 3 tins of pineapple in case I made my pineapple and ginger sauce.
You know what I’m looking forward to?
Onions, tomatoes, potatoes and beans from our veg patch:
Raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries and blackberries from our own bushes:
Picking an apple from our own tree to make sauce to go with our pork chops.
It will come…………. in time.
