Hey. How are you going today?
The weather here has been absolutely glorious. Now as a farmers wife I really shouldn’t say that because we really do need rain, but between you me and the front gate it’s been glorious. The suns been shining and the breeze has been gentle. You couldn’t wish for much more. Then the evenings have been cool, oh so cool it’s just beautiful.
So today I’ve been changing around my craft come meditation room to get my yoga mat and chair closer to the window so I can look outside easily.
I was fortunate enough to go outside for a little bit to collect the eggs my lovely chickens laid for me. Then I went for a drive with hubby to have a squizzy at the crops. Gee the colours in the sky tonight were beautiful.
So, consequently going for a drive means that I wasn’t ready with dinner before it was time to eat. Which leads to thoughts of…..um…….maybe eggs on toast, or oh there’s butter chicken in the freezer that I can warm up or….um oh I don’t know. When looking in the fridge I noticed I still had some cold roast vegetables and some cold roast chicken. So out came the frypan, with some sliced onion and tomatoes to cook through them in went all the chopped veggies and chicken and I added some greens (asparagus, broccoli and peas) a splash of water and voila bubble and squeak for dinner. To add a little extra flavour I popped in some salt and pepper then some homemade chicken stock.
Dinner time doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated. I love using leftovers either for breakfast, lunch or dinner the next night. It’s a great way of using up food in the fridge and it’s being economical with your time. I’d love to hear if you use leftovers to make another meal and what you use.
