This morning I set to and made soup to freeze.
Well, to start with I made some stirfry to freeze. Chicken with vegetable stirfry, noodles and red Thai sauce. Two pots are now in the freezer and Mr C has laid dibs for one of them already.
Then I decided to see how much I could use up of the leftovers in the kitchen. First attempt was a cauliflower and broccoli mix with added broccoli and stilton packet soup, chili flakes and black pepper. I used a whole cauliflower and two heads of broccoli plus a pint of vegetable stock.
Second attempt was a mix of butternut , cauliflower and vegetable couscous, leeks and courgettes . I stirfried the couscous and butternut then added several pints of cold water, the leeks and courgettes and let it boil up. Half way through I wasn't sure I liked how it was smelling, so I drained it and tasted it to see what it was like. It was fine, just a bit bland. I added two pints of vegetable stock and some five pepper seasoning before letting it boil again.
I'll blend both of those mixes down once they have cooled and portion them up for work lunches. It was an ideal way to spend a rainy Saturday morning, filling the house with interesting aromas. This afternoon I need to finish up some writing and list some eBay items, also pack up the ones which have sold lately too.
Catch you later.
