I am sooooo cold
So I have put a casserole in, beef with tinned tomatoes, a wallop of red wine (darling father provided!), mushrooms, onions and olives.
Tomorrow is sausage and mash, which is quite warming. Then I will see what is in the cupboards and freezer.
I have just been trying to tweak my grocery order. I have nibbled away at it, but it is still over £70 without alcohol. I think I shall have to go back and revisit. We had some stuffed chicken thighs (bought ready stuffed, I am not risking myself with a boning knife!) that were really, really nice and I put them on the order. However, just because they were nice and we all enjoyed them doesn't mean that I need to get them again immediately. They are not the cheapest of meals, £3.50 for four stuffed thighs, but there was actually plenty of meat and stuffing, so it served four very easily.
(I am uneasily aware that if I did the same meal myself it would cost a lot less. However, realistically, I don't think I could do it, and until I can, I will buy them).
I have been doing really well for the last month, but I can feel myself slipping. I really need to watch myself! I am going to go and look again at the order. The stocks need to be reduced!
