In the Rations Larder


I have just realised that although I mentioned about incorporating the food that I found in the 'dried foods cupboard' into my Rations Larder once I got back to the flat I hadn't photographed it for posterity properly now that it also contains my first weeks rations and some of the food bought with my Points.

As you can see there are quite a few things that will help me straight away as I kick off this year of modern rationing.  Some of the things are obviously what I have just added, the oil, tin of tomatoes, peanut butter etc.

I actually took the sugar out after taking this photo and popped it into the other cupboard, and I used 8oz of it to add to this weeks rations and I will use the other 8oz (talk about a serendipitous amount in one jar 😀) to add to my rations next week.

So panning back to see what's under the cupboard and you can see that I have quite a good little Rations Larder to start me off.  The large jars all now contain my dried stuff bought with this months Points, my oats, pasta, rice and lentils.  I already keep thinking about what I should buy with next months, it will be interesting to see what I have left over ... there will be red lentils for sure!!

I'm just prepping my Carrot and Coriander soup for lunch and at the same time half-cooking vegetables to add to tonight's Woolton Pie as per my menu. 

Before chopping ...

... and before popping into the bottom oven of the Aga.

 The kitchen smells lovely.

  1. Sorry, I'm confused. Didn't realise you had an Aga in your flat or did you make this back in Wales.

    This is the perfect time of year for soup

    1. I'm house/animal sitting back in Wales for a couple of days while Alan is down South for work and computer repairs.
