When you think you have nothing in.....

.....what do you cook?

My fridge is pretty bare of fresh stuff and as I had eggs for breaky I didn't want them for lunch so I've raided the cupboards and made spiced dahl soup.

one clove of garlic and a little piece of soft red pepper which was looking very sorry for itself in the salad drawer. Tumeric, garam masala and a cardamom pod, 75g red lentils, tin of tomatoes and 750ml veg stock. Cook for 30 mins and there I go, healthy free lunch - and I had NOTHING in!!!

What do you rustle up when you need to go shopping??

Heh, shopping day is eating-packet-food day. Out come the Pasta n Sauce, the Savoury Rice, the packs of Ainsley bloody Harriot cous cous that I bought cos they were on offer and haven't had yet.

If all else fails, something from my marvellous 'on-toast' range usually suffices. Tinned tomatoes on toast, and i'm sure there's always some mini tins of spaghetti numbers lurking around.
I generally make something like a pasta with tomato sauce bake. I usually have, onions, courgette, mushrooms, garlic and tinned tomatoes lying around!


Slow but sure....
It would probably be baked beans, sardines, scrambled eggs on toast as I always have eggs (I have chickens) and I always have a well stocked tin cupboard.

At the moment though I have such a 'glut' of tomatoes from the greenhouse - so I have been having scrambled eggs and grilled tomatoes for lunch with 2 Scan Bran.....the tomatoes soften the Scan Bran and help to get them down, LOL..
Ah, but what if you didn't have a pepper! I had no fresh stuff except a scabby bit of pepper! No carrots, onions, courgette, mushrooms, peppers or anything else in sight!! Bah - hate it when I run out of "staples" :(
[email protected] scabby bit of pepper :D
i usually grab supernoodles, a mugshot or a tin of beans and if i want something sweet i make a bowl of couscous flavoured with an options white choc.
