Its been a busy old week and I had hoped to get a post popped up that I prepared the other day but in the greater plan of things real life has reared its head and I have had to deal with other things. I have since popped this post up entitled "Mulled Pears".
Its rained on and off all day yesterday and we had a lightening strike in the office - which fortunately I did not see but it upskittled a colleagues computer but then she was sat by the window.
We also had a disappointing tea last night. A little while ago I bought some breaded cod goujons. I had never had them before but thought that they might make a meal and I popped them in the freezer. As I am currently working through the freezers for meals so that I can restock again come the autumn this was a meal that came out of the store. Never again. The chips I did were lovely but I do not think I am ever going to buy fish prepared this way again. If we have it I shall buy fresh and do it myself in batter rather than crumbs. Should have listened to my inner voice. The fish was dry - I am funny about fish at the best of times preferring it fresh to frozen. However we learn and I shall certainly not be buying them again. Which is a pity as I was hungry and I had been looking forward to my tea. Its always the way.
With me working the extra half hour a day it is impacting on how quickly we get our tea so I am going to have to sort out some new strategies for getting things sorted and in place before the winter months hit us again. I need to get to grips with the timer on the oven and also sort out some more recipes for the crock pot/slow cooker. Ones that I can prepare the night before and just leave.
I also need to organise the pantry again it has got into a bit of a state.
We will get there eventually.
Catch you soon.
