Welcome to my new Follower.
Many Thanks to RachelRadioStar for our lovely tea tonight. She really is a star, although I don't know whether she is a Radio or not? I'm guessing not. Only teasing Rachel!
The Value sausages were indeed de-skined (is that a word?) and added to minced up and fried off carrots and onions, to be hidden as per Frugal Queen's lessons, and breadcrumbs. I also added some paprika and seasoning and baked in the oven. A lot of fat came out of them, and we will definitely not be buying them again. In fact, I think I might steer clear of the value label on all meat/chicken etc, in future, it's just not proving worth it.
However, by the time I added some passata and spaghetti, they didn't look too bad at all and the important part - all three boys ate them all up with only one comment that the meatballs were a bit wet.
I am really pleased that I didn't just waste them and put them in the bin, which I would normally have done. In fact if we had nicer meat, I might even attempt something like that again! Wow, I know, me actually cooking, well kind of cooking, I did add some spice after all and on my own initiative aswell.
I have tried to do lots of exercise this week, but didn't quite manage a 5k walk yesterday as I developed low back ache on the way round. This time I stuck to the pavements rather than wading through mud, but realised just how unfit I was when I got very out of puff striding up the hill at the top of town. I was rewarded with a spectacular view though across to the moors.
I have also done a couple of sessions on the Wii Fit and worked very hard at Aquafit tonight, so I think I have earned a nice sit down with my Crochet Blanket tonight and perhaps a lovely cup of coffee. I'm trying to cut down as it is not doing my funny heart beat any good, but I just love the stuff!!
Then I'd better do a spot of tidying up in the hope that the Broadband engineer will be here tomorrow!
Hope you had a good Tuesday.
