Today, as the title suggests, we are being frugal. After seeing a recipe for "cheese pudding" on the back of Wendy's bookmark last night ( what a star - giving up her free evening to drive me to Scunthorpe and back!). I just had to try it out. I added onions and bacon but it used up those hardening slices of bread that we often throw away - and was amazing. Dinner tonight is shepherds pie using left over mince from yesterday whilst dessert is a family concoction. Chocolate borboun biscuits dipped in the left over raspberry coulis and then sandwiched together with cream. If it works ( we usually use orange juice) then , over the day , the biscuits will absorb the flavours and takes on a consistency similar to tiramisu - don't knock it until you've tried it! Of course all this cooking took its toll on everyone. I looked around to find everyone sparked out!
Of course we ruined the frugality by popping out for a coffee this afternoon - yep, another garden centre - but mum did get to try out a wheelchair. She found it the most frustrating experience - apparently we only stopped when we wanted to look at something and she ended up with a crooked neck!
