Yesterday I needed to use up some bacon that was open. I fried it while poaching eggs and warming beans in the microwave. I was going to cook hash browns to go with it, but that meant putting the oven on just for them (not economical for our electric bill), so I opened a tin of potatoes, sliced them and fried them in fat I had saved from cooking sausages another day.
You're probably thinking...so what! That's not very interesting...but...we actually don't like tinned potatoes! I bought them back in the summer, thinking I would try them in a potato salad, but never did! I think the flavour from the sausage fat helped, but they were actually quite nice.
The point of this blog post...I bought something but it had been sat in the cupboard for months uneaten.
...I used it up!
...I saved on my electric bill.
...we had potatoes to go with our sort of fry-up
...I know now not to waste my money on things we probably won't eat just because they're cheap.
Potatoes are quite expensive, but I will stick to what I know works for us (or we go without).
Have you ever bought something just because it was cheap???
