No shopping this week.

I have only myself to feed this week for evening meals.
My L&M is on the late shift and doesn't want to eat at 10pm when he gets home.
I don't need to buy anything extra, I have enough food in.

Tonight I'm having homemade leek and potato soup, the leek is from the garden, I have some potatoes in the fridge.
I melt a teaspoon of butter in a pan, add the chopped leek & potato. I use the green of the leek and I don't peel the potato, but you can if you prefer.
Stir the leek and potato over a low heat until coated, then add a pint of water, a sprinkle of mixed herbs, salt and pepper. 
Turn up the heat, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the potato is soft.
I blend mine with a stick blender. There will be enough for lunch tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will have hummus and crackers, 
Mash half a tin of chickpeas add a squeeze of garlic puree, little water and a squeeze of lemon juice, I like a sprinkle of paprika on mine, serve with crackers and shredded lettuce as I still have some in the garden, again, there will be enough left for lunch tomorrow.

Wednesday I'm making casserole.
I have a small carrot, half an onion, a few mushrooms and a few broccoli florets, I'll cook these, add the rest of the chick peas and a squirt of tomato puree and a sprinkle of herbs. I'll serve it with a jacket potato.

Thursday, I'll have scrambled egg on toast.

Friday, I'll see what's left and see what I can make without going shopping.

Hope that you are feeling better. You can't save the world however much you may want to.
