I'll never be a minimalist but it's true the less stuff I have the less space I actually need. Since I moved in I've been convinced that I need to shelve the 2 cupboards in the downstairs bedroom (effectively the guest bedroom) so I could store my stuff more easily. But if I get rid of the stuff, I don't need the shelves built and save myself some money. Simples!
I'm still working my way through the freezer and store cupboard, using up bits n pieces to make meals. Last night's meal was a hit. Rice and broccoli covered with some soft goat's cheese mixed with a little veg stock and covered with grated goat's cheese and breadcrumbs. It was then grilled until crispy. I've always got rice in the cupboard and broccoli in the freezer. I used up the last spoonful of soft cheese and the last tiny piece of hard goat's cheese. I have a GF white loaf in the freezer that I don't like the taste of but mixed with cheese as breadcrumbs is actually ok. It's too expensive to throw out so will be doing that trick again until it's used up!
I saw these in Sainsbury's the other day and bought them to see what they were like. 2.5kg of frozen chicken pieces. Drumsticks, legs, thighs and wings, all British chicken for £4. I'm going keep a note of how many meals I can make from them.
