Today is a day of being creative with what was lying around the house. I managed to get my seeds in today, about a month late!!! but the tomatoes are now planted. They were 29p a pack from Lidl and the seed trays came from the scrap store and some mushroom containers. I also managed to put in some lupins, sweet peas and parsley. They are now ranged on window sills around the house.
I had a few odd ingredients lurking around the cupboards and freezeer, half a pepper, half a tin of chopped tomatoes, half a salami in the fridge and some french bread sticks in the freezer that were picked up for pennies just as Co-op was closing. This is my version of bruchetta, a tomato sauce base, topped with red peppers, salami and some grated cheese. Put into the over for 15 minutes. I made three as I had three bread sticks in one pack but one was more than I could manage and the other will be wrapped in foil for dearly beloved to take to work tomorrow.
I also had a big bag of left over bread slices in the freezer, so they were defrosted and made into bread and butter pudding.
