The Experiment Day 4

Not been to the shops yet! Or eaten out, but last night I finished work a bit late and stopped at Ken's on Half Moon Lane for fish and chips for our supper which is against the rules, but honestly, I just forgot! It was half past eight and after a day spent twiddling food the last thing I wanted to do was start cooking again. But blimey, Ken's is fantastic isn't it! We hardly ever eat fish and chips and I had a can of coke! But I didn't have quite enough in my purse for mushy peas because I haven't had the convenience of supermarket cash back.

So far, we have no bread or eggs or fruit left but the fridge is still pretty full and look the green play dough from January is still there. I've been styling some deli products for M&S this week so I have been bringing home falafel, hummus, little salads and vine parcels which is defeating the purpose a bit. I have frozen mince, pasta and canned tomatoes to keep the spag bol coming until Christmas but no herbs! And the flipping mouse came back and took a little bite out of each of the last 4 packets of Quavers so that's the end of the crisps! We're eating porridge for breakfast everyday but that giant jar of oats is still full. Tea tonight: baked potatoes, beans and the last corner of hard cheese!

From the bottom of the freezer, two frozen whole seabass, so we will eat a proper Sunday lunch after all!

If you would just come around to mine for supper, I would buy in whatever you like! Then we could all be happy - even the bank manager! But Silvana must make me her chocolate cake...

Ah, DM, that's very kind of you but we need to make room in that freezer! Summer's coming, I want to make berry ice-cream and have no where to put it. What I really need to do is get people round here to help eat what we've already got.

Anyway, you not going to have a go at making that cake? Very easy!

Ha ha - I like the individual frozen peas attached to the packaging for the sea bass.

So - you're decluttering your freezer. I need to declutter my home. I was hoping to get a start at the school's table top sale today but I was so busy organising it that I didn't have time to have my own table to top. Bah.

Seabass in the bottom of the freezer!! How come all I find at the bottom of my freezer are ice-pops and loose peas?

Mr Native 12, you are obviously a good and sensible shopper. Not one who loads the trolley with things they'll never get round to cooking like me....
