So this week is mainly running down the fridge and freezer - planning a big shop at the weekend so I need to make space! My weeks shifts are a mixed bag as always with lates, nights and earlies, along with 4 various medical appointments and so it fits around them too!

I have sent my recipe over to the 'Inspired Fakeaway's #Recipe of The Week' post held at A Mummy Too this week:
And over to Elizabeth's Kitchen Diary 'No Waste Food Challenge' held by London Unattached this month - as the Beetroot literally had one day left on the sell by date when I used it! What a waste if I had not made the bhaji's!

Start by making the filling. Saute the onion in a little oil until softened and golden, add the white spring onion, spices and tomato, and gently fry for about 5 minutes, or until the tomato has softened. Add the stock, pork and cooked vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes until its a looseish consistency but not soggy either! Transfer to a bowl to cool slightly.
Pre- heat oven to 200.
In the now empty frying pan, put all the sauce ingredients apart from the cheese and bring to the boil and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Remove from the heat and stir through the cream.
Start assembling the enchiladas by warming the wraps in the oven for a couple of minutes to soften or in the microwave. Place a quarter of the filling on one side of the wrap, and carefully turn in the opposite sides and fold over the bottom, tightly into a roll to make a parcel. Place on a suitable baking dish (line if necessary - mine stuck despite it being non-stick!!) and repeat with the further wraps.
Meanwhile cook the rice - fry the oil and cumin seeds for a minute, then stir in the rice and beans, cover with two times the rice volume in vegetable stock - sorry I didn't measure in grams as I always cook rice this way until the liquid has absorbed. It should be slightly sticky texture wise - you won't need to drain it.

Last week was relatively on plan, though the Tuna fishcakes got bumped entirely as I found an abandoned cauliflower at the back of the fridge and made Cauliflower cheese bakes instead, which were very tasty and at least we didn't waste anything! Friday's stuffed squash also became the potential takeaway - a chicken shish with twister fries, washed down with a few glasses of Cava!
So this week its been pay day but we are really trying to use things up, as I have a storecupboard full of food and its a waste to buy new things in - we also have family over one night and a variety of shifts to contend with.. I am sure stockpiling pasta isn't a good thing but I can't resist the good stuff when its on special offer!
To get ahead and save too our lunches are also mostly made - I had mushroom and cambazola soup today, B had Piri Piri pasties and he will be eating his way through them - tuna couscous is also planned later in the week for when my soup runs out. I also made a pretty decent chocolate mincemeat cake so that's pudding sorted for tomorrow night!
