Freezer Diving …

After my splurge on dinner last night, I thought I should be looking to redress the balance. Time to free the frozen treasure….

imageA couple of weeks ago, we had Roast Pork, the left overs went into the freezer, I also have Yorkshire Pudding, Parsnips, peasย and the Cauli Cheese from Thursday’s dinner in there, so, using a ‘fresh’ new potato’s ย – Bingo….. A meal from leftovers ๐Ÿ˜‡

imageI will cook a whole bag of new potatoes to use tomorrow night too, prior preparation and all that….

I want to do some baking too – still have an orange left, so the Orange cake will be done again, 2 dodgy banana’s for Banana cake, and a Jamacian style ginger cake – these are for work, it’s my turn to provide ‘treats’๐Ÿ™„

imageI’ve already given you the recipes for the Orange Cake and Ginger Cake recipes in previous posts, but the Banana Cake is a good one, and you can add things like Cinnamon or Walnuts etc to jazz it up, but I went basic on this one, using this recipe –ย ย  It’s really light and fluffy and all of these cakes can be sliced and frozen, so you could take a piece at a time for packed lunches etc ๐Ÿ˜‡

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
