FOOD! Where to get it, and how to use up store cupboard essentials.
As a mum, you worry about feeding your family. I have been on lockdown for 3 weeks now! My daughter and I are classed as vulnerable, I am a type 1 diabetic and my Daughter has a Heart Condition. Now like many of you, you log on to the online shopping sites and there are no delivery slots or you in a virtual queue for 4 hours. I wanted to find some solutions, not just local to Milton Keynes; but some unusual companies that have never delivered to homes before.
If your are like me you will have lots of odds and ends stashed in cupboards. Tins of butter beans, packet mix that went out of date last month, frozen vegetables with freezer burn, or eggs that are going out of date faster than you can use them.
The aim in this blog is to point you to some great resources. Either for food delivery or in using up those store cupboard items that you have no clue about; by the end of this you will be ready for Master Chef.
Every morning at 11am on BBC there is a programme called Healthcheck UK live, this morning they talked about the things you can freeze, including Eggs!!! Was a new one on me. And if you’re feeling energetic you can even join in with Mr Motivator below.
