Crazy Days Challenge - Day Two

Last night's tea utilised some more of the Choppy Salad, this time on a bed of shredded Iceberg Lettuce and a grated carrot.  I never add grated carrot to the tub of choppy salad as it goes off much quicker than everything else, the same with fruit which Alan loves added to his salads … although this time he had some salted peanuts sprinkled on top.

We ate this with a small baked potato each and a fish fillet.  Yes, I ate some fish!!

I really fancied some so I had it, it sat like a lead balloon in my stomach all night.  Serves me right. 

Here in Wales I cook baked potatoes for a couple of minutes in the microwave and then finish them off in the Aga wrapped in foil, as we both like the skin soft rather than crispy.  Once I took them out of the oven I wiped the foil down and left it to dry and it will be used again at the very least once more … perhaps twice.

At the moment the Aga is helping to thaw out a portion of our tea.  I don't know what I fancy for lunch ... a bun with something on it I suspect as we have four buns in the bread bin that need using up.

I guess I should get round to menu planning but at the moment my mind is here there and everywhere and as long as I stay at least a couple of hours ahead of the meals we need I will manage.

  1. Two hours ahead is all it takes really although, like me, I expect you're happier with a bit more forward planning when possible. Your tea looks delicious!

  2. Your not the only one with reusing the foil, I do as well.

  3. The additions to the choppy salad look very tasty. Must try wiping down the foil to be used at least one more time.

    God bless.
