As per last week, I am joining in Rhonda's On My Mind series.
I had a baking day yesterday to restock the freezer. In retrospect I think I bit off a bit more than I could chew as by mid afternoon I couldn't face going back into the kitchen to make tea and Ginger's patience had definitely run out! Fortunately, I had some pizza bases I had prepared a few weeks earlier in the freezer so we didn't succumb to the lure of takeaway! I think this is an important money saving tool - pre-prepared or partially made meals you can whip out at a moment's notice and have dinner on the table even if you can't face cooking.
My baking used up lots of the floaters in our cupboard - Gingercake (recipe here) used up some lurking glace ginger, the fruit cake some currants bought for Christmas (recipe here), lunchtime chapattis (not pictured, but recipe from the Hairy Biker's Cookbook) some wholemeal flour which I wasn't sure whether was plain or self-raising (must label, label, label....) and the custard cookies (recipe here) custard powder I bought 4 years ago! Most satisfactory! The white container is yoghurt being made
And, now there can be no further complaints from DH that there is nothing left in the freezer for him to take for morning tea. He does like a daily sweet treat. The bread will be put to work for lunch today - I am thinking cheese and tomato toasties.
