Anyone have any favourite recipes for bok choy, red capsicum or cabbage?
I have a couple of favourite stir fry sauces, or maybe something with buckwheat noodles... but thought someone might have some ideas
Coleslaw with the cabbage and red capsicum. You could probably add the bok Choy too.
Shred cabbage, carrot, red capsicum, parsley And spring onion.
Dressing is mayo with lemon, a bit of seeded mustard, lemon and salt/pepper.
I'd make a fried rice with those ingredients.
Well I'm back on the pantry challenge this week!
I just spent $19 on fruit, milk & eggs. I've got almost a full bag of carrots and a few packs of steam veg so hoping that will get me through the week.
I spent $167 last week in groceries as it was DS2s party ... I never ever spend even close to that usually so I'm trying to watch this week's spending :/
I've been doing a bit of a version of this - mine is partly about reducing mid week cooking as well as reducing wastage and saving money!
On the school holidays I wait until meat is on special and then I do a huge shop. I then have a big cooking day where I cook a few vege laden recipes in bulk and then freeze as individual meals. Last holidays I made enough meals in that few hours for 3 meals per week for the entire school term! It means that now we spend very little in our weekly shop on stuff like milk, bread, fruit etc plus a couple of dinner things, and 3 times per week dinner is already half done when I get home, so less time cooking when I'm exhausted after work!

I've been reading these types of threads the last few days and it has inspired me get in the kitchen and use up my fridge and pantry odds and ends! So far we've had jellies, from some crystals I unearthed at the back of the cupboard. A carbonara for last nights dinner with some shallots and cream that were getting to the end of their lives and tonight a Shepard's pie to use up some wilting carrots, zucchinis and the rest of the mushrooms and some potatoes starting to sprout. All things I probably would've ignored and then chucked in a week! Woohoo! Thanks for the inspiration.
It's fun getting all surprise chef like hey??! 😄
Well last night my mum took me to a free screening of 12 years a slave. Oh my goodness what a touching, sad, eye opening movie. Then just before I set off home she told me she'd bought a few trays of sausages and bread she got cheaply and froze. Good timing (although not my food of choice) I was appreciative and so were my boys tonight when they had sausage hotdogs for dinner!! A real treat in their eyes Now I've got 22 more to use :/ Haha.
I think I'll make it through this week with maybe just buying one 2L milk taking my weekly grocery spend to exactly $21 for the week
