Reusing material

While working on my squatting, I ripped my shorts , straight down the seem, I really like the design on the matierial so I used the pockets and the zip to make a handy little bag. Forgotten how relaxing sowing is.

Cooking up the Cheap Chicken

Cheap Chicken Cooking

Lets cook up some chicken, Here i got 3kg of chicken bits , legs thighs and drumsticks. This is the cheap chicken meat you can get big bags like this from the freezer. I find these cuts more flavoursome and also cheaper. For some reason the breast meat is expensive. So when I cook I do it in large batches and once de boned , I boil the bones to make chicken stock and also freeze the cooked chicken to use at a later date with a whole range of dishes and salads.  Saves time and why not use the heat of the cooker to cook all your food in one go.

My First Salad Garden pictures

My Salad Garden

Here in my back garden as there is no soil i have made use of a mini greenhouse, and inside i am growing salad and herbs. It's nice each day going out and picking some fresh rocket and herbs to put in with my lunchtime salad. I want to get another one of these mini green houses. As i can fit in 6 bedding trays. They keep in the heat and the moisture.
