It didn't arrive... Boo. Some mix up with delivery and I wont get it till today.
It was hot too, so I had no need or want to really go anywhere anyway. But the problem was what were we going to have for dinner? Having been away, then having Australia day etc... I haven't really done much shopping and there isn't much in the house.
I scrounged around and found
|A sad looking carrot, zucchini in the same state, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and some onion|
I checked out the freezer and found mince and frozen pastry. PIE! bit hot for pie, but hey. I'm not leaving the house...
|I Chopped it all up and popped it in a frying pan to cook|
|Then added good old Gravox and reduced it down to a 'pie' consistency|
|I only had puff pastry so I cooked the base first using my cute little heart pastry weights|
And then I forgot to take anymore photos! But all I did was pop the meat and vegie mix in the base, pop a top on and cook that off till the top was crunchy and brown!
I felt so good using all the stuff we had in the house. The vegies would have ended up in the garbage that night (Monday night fridge clean out)
I'm so sick of wasting stuff and especially food. So it's my mission to start using up everything and to have minimal waste.
Ever made 'something' from 'nothing' and it turn out great, bad or somewhere in between?
