That is Mums Sunday night dinner, it was nice and tasty and even though it doesn't look to appealing she enjoyed it. She has been reading this week that 40% of all food produced is thrown out in the rubbish, not even eaten. She tries to be thrifty with her food buying and use most of it up, which can be hard living by herself. Food planning and cooking for one can often be difficult she finds. Winter is a bit easier. Tonight she cooked up 2x carrots/1 parsnip/1 turnip and mashed with some butter, a head of broccoli and a 6x sausages. This will be enough for 3 nights dinner Sun/Mon/Tues. Wednesday night mum will do soup and toast, and Thursday night is her night at the hairdresser so she will just grab something on the way home.
Mum tries to make her lunch most days, some fruit and a yoghurt or a sandwich although last week she bought a few lunches at work as she was so tired after her shifts. This week she will try and do better.
Our day was nice, a little lie in which mum enjoyed as there was a bit of a loud shouting out on the street last night. Luckily some neighbors called the police and the noise quietened down about 2am. Mum then got up showered and dressed, made herself a bagel and got some washing on. She then headed out into town and popped into the library and supermarket and had a wander round and enjoyed the fresh air.
So home by 4pm in time to get the washing in before the frosty evening air ruined the days drying, and fed me my feast. A little nap, cooking her dinner, friends on the phone and the evening is then over.
