Welcome to my new follower Peg Botham via Bloglovin.
Hooray! The sun has come out and I think I might actually be able to get some clothes dried on the line. Can't beat the smell of clothes dried on fresh air.
Yesterday was weigh day and I think I have put on around 1 to 1.5 lbs so not too bad. I made the effort this year to not overeat as my system just cannot take it now. I made less sausage rolls, mince pies, didn't ask for and therefore didn't receive any chocolates (great as I am going off those as well!).
For tea yesterday, I turned 4 sausages into 16 little balls, cooked them with an onion, a handful of frozen peppers, mushrooms, peas and sweetcorn, added a tin of red kidney beans, some stock, tin of tomatoes and some smoked paprika. There was a little left over soured cream so that went in at the end. We had half of it with rice and shall eat the other half tomorrow night.
When DS was here, he showed me a clip on You tube, that helps you heat a room for a very small amount of money, using an old bread tin, 2 different sized clay pots (if you have them), and 4 night lights (which apparently last 4 hours. This sort of sideways thinking would be great when in a power cut or just to save money.
I do think though that you would need to have it high enough away from children and pets and stand the whole thing on some protection if you do it on top of your table. Also take heed, it is on your own head if you try this, leave it unattended and burn your house down. He does say to make sure your smoke alarm is working!!
Anyway, the clip to it is here and should you give it a whirl, please let us all know. It does look as though you can use whatever size pots you have. There are also numerous others tips you might find useful - enjoy your read!
