It's been a hectic week at work as expected. I'm in before 8am, home after 5pm and I'm working on stuff in the evenings too. My choice, as I just want to make a good impression when the inspectors come. But I'm tired, grumpy and predictably am fighting off a virus/bug!!! So the focus is on decent but quick to make food.
I rescued these ready meals from the bin (literally) in school as they were past the use by date by a few days. They are now in my defrosted and cleaned out chest freezer. We had them for kids to taste Scottish food on Burns' night. Sadly there was no Irn Bru, shortbread or oatcakes left to bring home although I did rescue a wee bit of Scottish cheddar for my son!
I made a load of nut and lentil burgers from a 'when it's gone it's gone' mix I got ages ago in Lidl. They were rather tasty! Now also in the freezer.
I cooked a 2kg joint of brisket in the Crockpot, cost £10.61 from Lidl. I just shook some Tamari and Worcester sauce over it and cooked it for 5 hours. Must confess it didn't yield as much meat as I'd hoped as there was a huge piece of fat/gristle in the middle. But I got 8 generous portions for the freezer.
And we were on strike again one day this week! I'm in the blue hat 😊
When my life is busy I always prep food as it makes me feel organised in at least one area of my life!! School is still challenging but if I can make it to half term I've achieved more than I thought I was going to when I when I went back in January!
