Meal Plan Sunday 27th December 2020

  The meal plan is a little subject to change depending on what we have left and what has been used up. We have entered tier 4 on Boxing day and to be honest, I am trying to stick to my online shop only apart from a trip to our farm shop. So this week is a little boring but will be tasty and will limit any food waste. Sunday 27th December - Ham and Turkey Pie I do love this meal and will get some ready-made pastry in and make a white sauce to bring it all together Monday - Turkey Curry well you have to have one  Tuesday - Singapore Turkey Noodles with lots of veggies Wednesday - Fish in sauce with new potatoes and Greens Thursday - Nachos and Party food Friday - Beef Pies I will buy in with mash and lots of green veg Lunches will be lots of leftovers in the form of sandwiches, omelets, and pasta salads.

The rest of the time was just observing. I do like to just wander around having time to think.  This is a small border I have never really done anything with. I have a leggy rosemary bush, one rescued lavender, a small oregano, and random bulbs that despite thinking I have removed them more pop up every year. It is such a pretty border it needs some attemtion. I think I am going to have to get rid of the rosemary but that's as far as my thought process has got. Lavender is featuring strongly in my plans but
