I did well this week but for whatever reason, probably forgetting to get anything out of the freezer, we ended up with ham egg and chips. The tomatoes were going to waste so I cooking them in a little oil, adding some purée and a little red wine vinegar instead of just smothering the dinner with ketchup.
Served with a slice of buttered bread to make a nice egg and chip butty.
What was going to be a trip to the shops for food only ended up being another DIY day, putting up shelves and finishing my room. I was back in town again at 5pm for some little bit’s to finish off, spending my money on trinkets which Mr S pretends he doesn’t care about but I know he does really.
Once we had finished, two very tired DIYers couldn’t even be bothered to pick up the phone for a takeaway so ended up with this instead.
A ham & cheese sandwich, a chip butty and some crisps.
I do feel guilty when I don’t go to the market but I really fancied a lie in. I didn’t drink all the wine last night and Mr S wasn’t that late so this was not alcohol induced. I think it was just the first weekend in a while when we haven’t had a pile of stuff to do.
We just lazed around watching TV/films with the intention of shopping at about 6pm but when it came around to it we couldn’t be bothered to leave the house so all that left was a takeaway – our favourite – Chinese.
Mr S went out tonight so I was home alone. After my delayed train finally got into the station I popped into Tesco and bought myself a meal for one Pepperoni Pasta Bake.
I don’t buy them often, obviously they are convenience foods but to be honest, they are not that convenient when you don’t own a microwave, I could have cooked it from scratch quicker! It tasted decent enough though.
Oh, and did I mention the couple of beers and a bottle of wine?
Another full day of DIY – painting and cutting and fitting skirting boards left us absolutely knackered with no desire to start making the meal we had planned so it was off to the shops for a couple of hard earned cans of beer and the order of our favourite seafood pizza and a hot one.
I don’t think I’ve been this tired for quite some time!
I’m not sure how Mr S managed to do this weeks meal list one item short, but he did. The plan was to pick something quick up from the supermarket as we have a lot of DIY ahead of us this weekend but Mr S ate out at lunch time.
I really fancied sausage roll and beans but Morrisons had no fresh ones and the pre-packed ones are ‘OK’ if you’re desperate but not as a dinner.
Mr S suggested the frozen aisle and I had visions of party sausage rolls but this pack of four did the trick and apart from being a little under seasoned they weren’t bad at all. Especially with a little brown sauce.
