It’s a bit warm here in the UK today.
An ideal time, my local retail emporium believes, to switch off the chill cabinets and move everything out of sight into the warehouse. So there Mr C and I were, heading into the store in search of salad for supper, only to find that it looked more like something out of Communist era eastern Europe.
We already have ham, cucumber, carrot, lettuce, cheese and mayo here at home.
So instead of walking out of the place in disgust I started to think logically and so we now have:
- New potatoes
- Egg mayo deli spread
- Chicken and bacon deli spread
- Cheese and onion deli spread
to go with our existing supplies. Tomorrow I can make some rice salad and coronation chicken salad once the chicken has defrosted and buy some green salad from the store at work before we leave in the evening. I might even be able to use the last two eggs in the salad mix as well. We certainly shouldn’t starve, at least.
My rice salad is always popular and I have a few ideas on what to put into it already:
- Cherry tomatoes
- Diced peppers
- Garlic and herb cheese
That’ll keep me and Mr C going during this heat, for sure. Most of these are items we have in the fridge anyway, what we don’t have can be purchased cheaply from the store, assuming they still have some items left on the shelves tomorrow, that is...
