    Decided against going into morrisons yesterday after WI as i had food for the day. Thought i would leave it for today. I am now snowed in and have ds off school. So i'm going to have to revise my eating plans for today and use what i have.

    Have to admit. I struggle when my plan gets changed. Trying to firgure out what i can have with what i have left. Will have to be a EE day. Problem is i don't have much fruit or veg left.

    Damn snow

    I would imagine there are a few of us home today because of the weather - I know I am! Why not post what food you have and we'll have a Minimins type 'Ready Steady Cook' challenge - may give everyone some ideas?? xxx

    Thats pretty good really! You have strawbs for snacking. Have you pasta? If so passatta, garlic, and pasta either with chicken or mince for dinner.
    And chicken salad for lunch, or salmon salad? Have you any tinned chickpeas to bulk up salad, or cous cous?
    Or you can do an ommelette with the eggs, have you any onion, toms or cheese to add? Or potatoes ( for sw chips) or oven chips to have with ommelette?

    I only have savoy cabbage and an orange pepper. I should really buy frozen for occasions such as this.

    I know what you mean, but you don't think til its too late!! I have now (after getting caught out last week lol) stocked up on long life skimmed milk, and have bread, veg, and fruit and mullers in the freezer - not a lot of use for you now, I know!!!

    My Menu with those ingredients would be:
    B- eggs and sausages
    S-strawberries
    L- Lean mince meat cooked with garlic/onions/herbs/tomatoes and some pasta
    D- salmon salad
    You can always see if your neighbours have some veg you can borrow?
    I'm in the same boat..snowed in! Good luck!

    If you get really desperate, perhaps you could do a swap of things you do have more of with a neighbour ? Or if you see any of your neighbours heading out perhaps you could ask them to collect you some fruit.... of course this only works if you know/get on with your neighbours ! Maybe its cheeky, but if you're desperate, you dont know if you dont ask.

    Tin toms and passata with garlic could be great to make a tom soup :)

    I know if I had milk or bread these would be the things people might swap for fruit and veg (people do go mad for milk and bread). Its surprising how people pull together in these unusual situations :)

    well it doesn't look like my neighbours are going out either. Cars are snowed in quite a bit and i think unless its essential like work, people are staying in, like me. I think i can get by with your lovely ideas today.

    I had my HEB and some HEA this morning for weetabix.

    So i think for lunch i'll make the pasta with chicken and passatta with onions, garlic and orange peppers and make enough to have for lunch tomorrow as well.

    snacks will be my strawbs and cup of tea, oh and i have a curly wurly in the fridge

    dinner i'm not decided yet. Not sure whether to get the mince out as well and make it with onions, garlic, gravy and use up my cabbage ( sf food)
