Cooling Recipes and Pallet Furniture

It’s hot. It was hot at 8am this morning, properly hot, here in Scotland as we sat on the bench above and drank our tea. We hope you’re getting a chance to do cooling things like paddling in the sea and/or eating ice lollies.

Back to that bench; it’s one of our recent pallet creations. There’s a new post about them here!

Food for the heat: minted noodle soupice lollies, Bean Burgers, Rice Salad, Hummus, Raw Chocolate Bites and actually, though it may seem somewhat counter intuitive, curry!

Super Cheap Pots, Herbs & Gardening!

Some days it’s hot and sweltering, like being in another country, other days it’s cold and windy and, well, like being here! But it is time for gardening, planting, sowing etc. and we’ve been making a start on that.

A trip to our local B&Q started really well with the discovery of a large selection of last season’s pots sitting out front, all for 50p! We got the two pictured above, along with the 4 for £10 deal on quite large herb plants. Winter soup flavoured! See our section on gardening and wild food: Free Food

cheap shoes and wild garlic

wild garlic

The snow has gone! For now… So we’ve actually been enjoying the wild garlic that grows near us! There’s been pesto and creamy soup and lots of garnishing and adding to sauces 🙂

We’ve discovered a new source of discounted shoes. It’s not as cheap as Everything5Pounds but Schuh Imperfects have some amazing deals on big name brands. All the shoes will have some small imperfection, but it’s well worth a look for the massive savings available.

Wild Food, Snow Food!

Last week we got excited about wild food: the wild garlic was through, we were looking forward to wild garlic pesto and creamy wild garlic carrot soup and anticipating nettle soup and dandelion fritters.

Then came the snow. Road blocking, face freezing, wild garlic covering, snow.

So we’re wrapped up warm in our £5 jumpers and back on the yellow split pea soup, the leek and potato and the mince and dumplings 🙂

In case you missed it last time, our latest super frugal post: The 25p Meal.

Super Frugal Meals and Jumpers!

Well there’s been lots of really cold weather here: ice, snow, driving winds, sleet, hail… you name it. But we’re cosy in front of the fire and looking forward to Spring and all the sunshine and wild foods it will bring!

We have a new post up, all about super-frugal meal making, in fact aiming for 25p per person for a good dinner. See it here: The 25p Meal.

We’re all appreciating our warm jumpers just now, including the ones we got for Christmas from Everything5Pounds. Amazing quality items there, and all for £5!
