This is not the whole order, I have 20 packs of the Colman's Season & Shake Sticky Ribs. Some will go to Fran and the rest will be used for lots of things. I cook Chicken, sausages, fish and vegetables in this. It leaves no mess in the oven, the tray just needs a wipe over and it is delicious. If I want it a bit stickier I add some brown sugar, honey or Maple Syrup, If Smokey is more to the point I add some smoked paprika. I sometimes add Powdered Garlic, grated Ginger and/or fresh Chilli. The only limit is the contents of my kitchen.
Tonight I will make up half a packet of the Quinoa bake, drag some homemade Lentil Dahl from the freezer and have them with a dollop of Mango Chutney (from my last AF order) with a Chapatti or two. I still have coriander growing in a pot so some of that will go in as well. My dinner will cost around 25p and there will likely be enough left over for a meal tomorrow. Btw the lentils also came from AF ages ago.
I will wrap the Chapattis in pairs and freeze, they are very good heated in a dry frying pan, topped with cooked mushrooms and a sprinkle of grated/crumbled blue cheese and rolled up, 2 with salad is a good meal.
Here is the delivery note, £20. 57 including delivery of £5.25, it would have cost me more than that in petrol and parking to go to Lynn or Cambridge and then I would not have got these bargains.
I intend to have a go at making Mango Chutney with one of the tins of pulp. if it is not successful I will not have wasted much I will eat it anyway, unless it is disgusting.
I am going to try roasting Chick peas and mushrooms in a Sticky Rib mix, I usually do them with curry powder and cumin seeds, a change is as good as a rest. What about Butternut squash and Sweet Potato, that could well happen at the weekend, with a couple of chicken wings and some peppers and celery thrown in it would be dinner in a bag.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. My purse is feeling healthy.
2. My cupboards are full of good things to eat.
3. The sun is shining in a clear blue sky.
4. I have a delicious dinner for pennies.
5. And Christmas Pudding for afters.
I was very abstemious and only ordered 4 Christmas Puddings from AF, I did hover over zero but thought that 40 may have been ever so slightly OTT.......
I will cook a pudding and have a slice then the remainder will go into a pie crust with a slather of plum jelly, to keep it moist, and be shared with my neighbours. If I don't I will eat the lot, Miss Piggy has nothing on me.
On that greedy note I am off to the kitchen to start dinner and gloat over my goodies.
