So, 'What's the recipe today Jim', ha ha, remember that catch phrase? The Jimmy Young show on Radio 2. Every day he had a new recipe to share with the nation. Not that I am going to have one every day, I find recipes pretty boring to be honest, but as I am having to be a tad inventive with my dwindling food stocks, I thought I would carry on untill I had no food left.
Breakfast was beans on toast again, the second half of the tin from yesterday.
Lunch was the left over cous cous and peas, yes I did too much, with half a tin of chopped tomatoes added to it. Zapped in the microwave. Followed by a cuppa soup, horrible things but I don't want to throw them away.
By 4pm I was feeling a bit peckish so I had a couple of slices of toast spread with Value cream cheese.
Dinner tonight. I cooked some bulgar wheat in water in a pan for about 20 minutes till the water had been soaked up. Then I added the other half tin of tomatoes, splash of apple juice, a chopped up apple, splash of oil, a veg stock cube, a tablespoon of cheap curry sauce mix, some sultanas, and seeds crushed in the pestle and mortar.
I cooked it for a further ten minutes, some water was needed to stop it becoming too stodgy. Served on a very sparse bed of wholemeal spaghetti. My version of spagbol. The taste? I wouldn't say delicious, but it was perfectly acceptable, and I am full. There is some left for tomorrow.
