Once youve had the experience of having nothing to feed your kids on , however many years ago , it turns you into a store cupboard hoarder . So ive enough rice couscous and pasta to feed an army tucked away . Theres all the xmas leftovers hidden in the freezer , stock, vegetables and a mountain of mash . We roasted the last of the sprouts yesterday with olive oil and garlic. theyre nearly giving them away now so i may get a couple more stalks and craftily serve up sprout slaw.
Weve done really well this year nothings gone to waste , apart from half a black pudding that got left out of the fridge and didnt pass the sniff test . And an out of date double cream that was tucked behind something else in the fridge . Does anyone else bake with sour milk and out of date dairy products ? My gran always did and nobody died, but people look at you as if your about to commit mass murder these days ...ho hum
