I’ve bulk cooked today and I’m still battery less so you’ll just have to make do! I’ve made 8 servings of cottage pie, six serving of chicken casserole (I’ve boned out chicken thighs for this) and 6 servings of fish pie. They all fitted in the oven on one batch and were all cooked in 45 minutes including getting the oven up to heat. No cakes though, we’re too waist conscious now!
The only real hassle of being skint in weather like this, is the struggle of getting wet washing dry. It was raining by midday and there’s no sun forecast until Wednesday. My house looks like Widow Twanky’s at the moment, with bedding and towels over doors and shirts and trousers hung over every available clothes line. I even placed the clothes stand near the oven with the door open (safe distance of course) once I’d finished cooking.
We have a momentous occasion on Monday. The tree that has been blocking the light for years is coming down. It will then take us a while to chop it into logs and stack it for next year’s heating.
I have plenty to do all weekend. I’m catching up on all the books I have to mark…………..120! and that’s not all of them. So you know where I’ll be for the next ten hours! Plus, I’m busily lesson planning. The good thing about a job that keeps you working all weekend, every weekend is that you’re too busy to spend any money.
