Above is a photo of my homemade butter.
Also yesterday for dinner I made fish pie which is based on a recipe that Hardup Hester posted a while back.
I add what I can find to use up in my fridge, freezer and pantry.
What I did was thinly slice potatoes so they cook quicker thereby using less gas.
I also found 4 eggs in the fridge so I boiled and peeled these and cut up to go in with the fish into the oven dish to bulk it up a bit.
At the same time I was cooking 3 fillets of white value fish in butter and covered with milk which was all I could find in the freezer.
I only simmer the fish for about 5 minutes.
I strained the milk into a large jug to make instant cheese sauce with 2 packets from Asda (4 for a £1) adding a little water to make it up.
I placed the fish in the oven dish and looked in the fridge and found part of a tin of sweetcorn so that went in the oven dish aswell.
Then I looked in the freezer again and found some peas so added a handful to the potatoes just before they had finished cooking.
Next I opened a tin of basics tuna and placed that in the dish and sprinkled over a tablespoon of mixed dried basics herbs, covered all this with the soft, sliced potatoes and poured the cheese sauce mix all over.
This cooked for about 1/2 hour at gas 6.
We got 5 portions out of it.
Above is a photo of what was left from yesterday in a bowl which I will have for lunch tomorrow.
