Clearing the fridge

This will be my last post for a week, we're off on holiday this morning. A week of driving, walking and eating around Northern Britain. I am hoping that some really top-quality blogging will result!

But it meant that last night there was some work to do. Everything that was likely to perish in the fridge had to go. And to my mind, the best thing to do in this situation is to put everything in a pan with some olive oil and a tin of chopped tomatoes.

So - a couple of slices of leftover jerk beef, a leftover chicken thigh, an onion, a red pepper past its first firmness, a couple of big flat field mushrooms, an aubergine and 4 small tomatoes. A sachet of French onion soup that is far too disgusting to have as soup but makes a useful thickener and seasoning. The last of a bottle of red wine that wasn't very nice.

Now the fridge is clear, we won't come back to funny smells and we can enjoy our holiday.

You have your work cut out for you! My fridge really needs a good cleaning, and I'm not even going on vacation.

You must be doing the Foodbuzz challenge too? Or have you always posted every day?

Have a nice holiday!

Enjoy your break -- and can't wait to learn about the delights you discover along the way!

Heather - I know nothing of this Foodbuzz of which you speak! I usually post 3 times a week but I was on a 2 post a day roll.

The holiday was OK. Not really a gastronomic highpoint, but watch this space for my exposition on regional black pudding variations (crankypants, you may want to take your veggo sensibilities elsewhere).
