Friday feast

After a busy week you want something simple and comforting on Friday night to ease you into the weekend. Spaghetti and meatballs fits the bill for me.
So, tonight we had home made meatballs using lean minced beef with a scant handful of breadcrumbs to bind. I always keep a stash of breadcrumbs in the freezer to use up any odd bits of bread that might otherwise go to waste.
Last night (Thursday) was shopping and menu planning night and I found myself with a pile of unused vegetables in danger of being thrown away – oh the horror!! I hate waste… Slow cooker to the rescue – slightly wrinkly carrots and peppers joined leeks, celery and tomatoes in the pot to bubble gently away to make a tasty sauce to accompany tonight’s meatballs.
A quick whizz with the stick blender (not too much as I like it chunky) and there’s enough stashed in the freezer for two more meals.
It’s not the prettiest meal ever but it’s hearty, low fat, SW friendly, thrifty and above all damn tasty.
Happy Friday everyone.

  1. It’s amazing what you can make from a few leftovers that would otherwise be thrown away. I do this with soup very often. A friend at work calls it ‘fridge soup’.
