I am and always have been an animal lover. I've had cats who were all super special in many different ways. Their little feline personalities all unique and equally adorable. I had a horse too who helped my childhood dream come true when I was a grown up with children of my own! Yet I had never had a dog.

I always feel good when we've eaten the food that I filled the fridge with at the beginning of the week. It means that we've kept to our plan and not overlooked what was in there in favour of other options. Obviously on occasions we have last minute changes of plan and what I anticipated making for dinner stays in the fridge. This is when I will use the freezer to store the meal for me until a time when we need it. The freezer is literally like the pause button for a meal or food that would … [Read more...] about Food Waste – how much are you throwing away?
