Big hamburgers were a definit success. I don't know what I'm having for tea tonight because i can't identify the frozen lump that came out of the wrap-up last night. So tea depends on what I find when I open it up this morning.

(Later: The parcel turned out to be about a pound of braising steak so it's marinading in Worcester Suce, salt and pepper and it will be slow cooked casserole later, with tinned tomatoes. Not a bad result.)

The package I got out yesterday turns out to be fillet steak, something I would never normally buy. So, fine dining tonight!

Moh, you'd have laughed at me yesterday. I got the 'fillet steak' out of the fridge where it had been defrosting, opened it up and found it was two sets of turkey giblets! Hero to Zero. Chucked them in the pressure cooker and used the resulting stock for a nice veggie soup. Jack had the best bits of the meat in his tea. Shows how good I am at identifying frozen meat. However, it reminded me how good giblet soup can be. Lovely soup and no hardship.

Better luck today. Opened the latest dip into the wrap-up and it's three peppered sirloin steaks. Yippee! Soup and steak butty for tea for three days. Things could be worse.

Talking of getting something out of the freezer and discovering it's not what you thought, reminds me of this amusing incident before Christmas.

 
I got out what I thought was some oxtail to defrost overnight.  My wife would then brown it a bit in the morning and pop it in the slow cooker during the day ready for dinner that night.  The conversation when she phoned me at work went something like this:

 
Wife - 'That oxtail.  It's not oxtail it's rabbit, but I've found a recipe'.
Me - 'Good.  Which bits of the rabbit is it?'
Wife - 'Not sure, but this bit here seems to be a wing''
Me - 'That's a strange rabbit..........'

 
And she grew up in rural Gloucestershire..................

I like it! When I was tanker driving for West Marton Dairies we used to deliver regularly to a dairy at Milnthorpe, I forget the name but they were also in general foods. Two things stick in my mind. I watched a machine in the warehouse one day which was a long framework filled with cardboard cases which was oscillating quite violently back and forwards. I asked one of the workers what it was and he said it was a machine for shaking tomato ketchup up. I thought 'ask a silly question' etc. But it turned out he was telling me the truth. It broke up that annoying little plug that forms in the neck of a bottle that's been in stock for a while.

The other thing was that they had a factory shop and we were allowed to use it. Every now and then they had what they called surprise cases. These were full of A4 size tins that had lost their labels during packing. They were dirt cheap and I always got one when they were available. Vera loved them, they could be anything from tinned peaches to potatoes. Just remembered the name, it was Libby's .

Sometimes at Christmans Mum used to make mince pie, all in one in a flan dish like an apple pie, easy to cut it into portions for the family and none of this faffing about with patty tins and pastry lids, we got one out of the freezer a bit after to have a s pudding, got the cream and the cheese out to have with it, cut into it and yes, it was mince pie...just the wrong kind of mince!
Lancashire hotpot, modified tonight, swede not carrot and mint suace not pickled red cabbage, sometimes you have to make do!..Nice to read all your posts over christmas the whole house hold here was laid up with swine flu so the food has lasted twice as long!

Belle, not a long way from traditional mincemeat despite the identification error. Original mincemeat was made of meat but with the other ingrdients of what we now call mincemeat.

Giblet soup bit the dust last night. It got better over the three days. Why does it taste so sweet? Butcher's day today so I haven't got anything out of the freezer. One sirloin in sauce left for tea tonight and I think I fancy some sausage and chips for tomorrow.

By the way, regular breakfast in this cold weather is porridge. I make it by putting a very small amount of oats in a bowl with a handful of sultanas, about half a bowl of semi-skimmed milk and microwave for 3m 20s. Always perfect, easy and keeps me going till tea-time. Cheap as well.....
