Ah Ha!! I found some self raising flour and we have plenty of butter in the house due to a ‘buy one get one free’ offer…. I am certainly not a a pastry expert but I am afraid move out of the way perfectionists this is about thrift!
I have a slightly soft bit of broccoli, half a bag of spinich, and plenty of red onions some mushrooms i think it was four, and i also remembered about some chives growing in my very sad looking unattended vegetable patch and some chedder cheese which i will have to skrimp on as there is not alot left! Cheese is one of those things i get nervey about if there is not much left, but hey like i said i am over it ! or am i?
Only problem here is i have one egg, but this is not going to help so my partner is asked to raid the lovely honesty box of a local farm and brings six lovely fresh eggs home.
