Yes we all have those moments when its approaching dinner and we stare in the fridge then look in the pantry, then back at the fridge, then to the freezer. I have this situation a lot. I am pretty organised all week then Thursday approaches and I am like ‘oh crap what can I make?’ without having to go to the supermarket.
But I have come to welcome Thursday dinner decisions with looking it as ‘what can I put together that wont taste too bad and clean out my fridge’ night. Last week my husband and I had some wedges, salad and leftover Roti with satay sauce. Its not something you would normally put together or have every night but it was yummy and I didn’t have to throw any food out the next day.
I am so sick of throwing out veggies. They can be so expensive and when your on a budget putting veggies in the bin is a crime. So I think its a great idea to have Thursday as ‘what can I put together that wont taste too bad and clean out my fridge night’.
I always have some sort of wrap in the house, I have pita bread in the freezer (which is super convenient as I can just take out one or two when I need it) and tortillas in cupboard (I love how the the packs are resealable and can last a week if opened). Lunch or dinner they are always a great and super easy to use, plus my daughter love having cucumber, cheese and lettuce wraps, which is great to get some green healthy food in her without arguments.
I had some beef in the bottom of the freezer( been there a few months), lettuce, tomato and cucumber, which had to be used now, and endless amounts of condiments. Wa-La! we have beef wraps with peri-peri mayonnaise. Delicious!
I love wraps you can basically put anything in them and add mayo and its delicious.
Next week I wonder what Thursday dinner is going to look like?
