Toast for breakfast.
A lovely pair of baps ...
... to go with our 'peelings and trimmings soup'
And then a lovely and very large tea of Spaceship Pasties ... as we've now christened them. Don't panic, it's just to do with the shape .. there are no little spacemen inside.
Inside the wholewheat pastry was the last of the beef and vegetable stews and as you can see they were served with broccoli, boiled potatoes and Bisto gravy. I used all Trex as the fat for the pastry, as I still had virtually all of last weeks ration left, and although the pastry was as light as a feather is was murder to work with.
It was only when I came to open up my head of broccoli that I realised it isn't in season in this country at the moment, it was from Spain ... duh!! I should have known that instantly as I grow it myself. How conditioned we are to just picking up what we fancy from the shops these days and not stopping to consider what is actually in season NOW. Lesson learnt.
We were really full after our tea ... and yet somehow between us we managed to eat almost all of one of these little banana cake loaves.
I'm really doubting that we are losing any weight or getting any fitter on this wartime ration way of eating as at the moment I'm feeling proper podged!!
