While I'm hopeful that things are about to happen I'm not counting my chickens yet. But I can't just sit and do nothing so I'm planning ahead. I'm trying to use up stuff in my freezers so they can be moved empty. I found 2 bags of blackcurrants from my mum's garden at the bottom of one. While I like them they're a bit too tart for me just using them on their own. So I decided to make some cassis which I can use for gifts.
Blackcurrants plus sugar and topped up with cheap gin or vodka. Shake once a day until all the sugar has dissolved and then store for 2 months to mature before straining and bottling. I did these last night and already they're turning a glorious blackcurranty colour.
I scored some great bargains at Sainsbury's last night. Fish pie with salmon for 10p!! Popped it into the freezer for a lazy supper next week. The Teenager loved the fancy yogurt. It's a new luxury brand The Collective and costs £2.39 a tub. I'd never pay that much so I was pleased I got it for 59p.
I feel a potato related post may be next as that's a big bag for just 2 of us!!
