DH and I have made some good progress on those jobs we need to do. We're not there yet and our curfew has slipped by us a couple of nights, but we're definitely feeling more positive.
Tonight I thought I'd just pop in to share my cheap but perhaps a bit odd meal tonight. Our weekly shop is tomorrow so it was the ususal what have we got left mish mash and I thought I'd actually try a spot of home cooking.
I don't have a lot of spices in the cupboard so this is what I threw in the frying pan:-
Most of one red onion chopped (I didnt have a white one!)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp finely grated root ginger ( I have a huge root and haven't used it yet as I don't really know what to do with it)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp mild chilli powder
400g can chopped tomatoes
1/2 tsp artifical sweetner ( not the aspartame kind)
250ml vegetable bouillion
1 large sweet potato peeled and chopped
1 long life carton of haricot beans
1 can sweetcorn
A totally fat free, very low cal, healthy tea. I probably could have done with less stock as it was very liquid-y, but that "mopped" up nicely with a couple of slices of wholemeal bread. I was able to put aside two portions for another day and still had an enormous plateful.
Will be checking in on all your Blogs later, so hope everyone has been well.
Lots of Love
