Just a small thing

Welcome to Di McDougall via Bloglovin and Twiggtpeasticks via here.

As we get older, other than having bad backs, it becomes more difficult to do simple tasks such as lifting, pulling and pushing. We both know how to lift heavy things but I had been finding it a little more difficult to push heavy kitchen equipment, such as the food processor, away to the back of cupboards.

DB sorted it out in a jiffy. He lifted it out, drew around its base onto a thickish piece of cardboard (adding extra all around), cut the shape out, cut out and strengthened a handle for ease of pulling and there you go, slides in and out lovely:


I have updated the menu tab with our meals from last week. The meat content was the closest to our maximum for a long while.

As I need to find some space for Christmas meals and baking, we have decided that the next 4 weeks of meals will be from the freezer and cupboard contents as much as possible. Usually we take quite a few meals and ideas from these but more of an effort is to be made, we need some space!

  1. That makes two of us - I think food supplies expand to fit the space available!

    1. True but freezer space is quite limited so I really must try not batch cooking until more space is available

  2. Great idea! I've got to free up a wee bit of space in our freezer for the three-bird roast I am hoping to buy for the Christmas lunch...

    1. Also the small indoor freezer is self defrosting but not the upright outside one and it also needs doing!
