This morning I added some turmeric to the rice again, with the sunshine of yesterday vanishing with the thunderstorm that hit us at teatime, a blast of yellow was needed to start the day today. Once again I made a double portion so the main part of my tea was ready and waiting.
For some reason this year I have got my calculations slightly wrong and I have no lentils left for the planned Lentil Pancakes for lunch and I also seem to have less flour left than I thought I should. Happily though one of my teammates who started two days early than the rest of the team as she had plans for this weekend, offered her leftovers to the rest of us. I asked for the flour and there was 114g on offer.
Just perfect for me to be able to make some pastry to wrap two of my leftover Lentil and Bean Burgers from yesterday.
They looked pretty good once the burgers with their dahl topping were wrapped in the pastry.
And even better once cooked, although I've noticed that with pastry made with oil you don't get the same browning, and of course I had no milk to brush them with.
My tea was virtually the same as my breakfast, the only difference being a sprinkle of chopped spring onions. The onions have made a real difference to my food this week. As well as the flavour they add to the food, there's something about that pop of green that makes you feel that the meals are just a tad healthier.
It's the final day tomorrow, and as you saw yesterday I have lots of rice left, I think I have just about enough of everything else to make three good meals. Of course I also have just under a teaspoon of coffee left, but I'm planning to have that tonight, to be drunk in lieu of a glass of wine while I sit and watch Gogglebox, one of my favourite programmes.
Thank you so much for all your support, the total is currently standing at £2,056 ... an amazing amount and one I really didn't expect to reach.
THANK YOU 💖
