I headed off to the store early today as we needed milk and a few other essentials. I also wanted to spend the vouchers I received last week before I forgot I had them.
Apart from the fact that the store was murderously busy, I had a really good trip. The reduced to clear shelves were groaning, so I bought a huge amount of vegetables for half price or better. Shredded leek and cabbage and a basic finely diced vegetable mix ( carrot , celery , onion etc) are currently simmering away on the hob making soup. I'll batch it up later and freeze it for weekday lunches. My ex-landlady always used to make 'soup of the week' on Sunday after church so it's very much a Sunday tradition.
The cauliflower couscous and courgette spaghetti are destined to be stirfried and frozen before being made into smoothies later this week. Meantime I'm going to make one for tomorrow with the last avocado and one of the apples that I have left over from last week.
I also finally made the dough for the brandy butter cookies I've been saying I want to make. So I bought some cranberries and chocolate chunks to add to those. And yes, the rest of the cranberries are probably going to end up in a smoothie.
After all that productivity I've finally sat down for a while, waiting for my husband to come back from town. He can dry up the dishes when he gets in, and also iron the teatowels (they don't go to the ironing service as any nerk can iron teatowels, even linen ones). I think I've earned the rest of the day off the chores after that burst of domesticated creativity.
