It has many guises does my stash. It lives by the yard in the sewing room, by the ball in the wool cupboard and by the cupboard/fridge/freezer full in my kitchen.
But it is decreasing - well, maybe not all the time! The freezer is particularly full in this post Christmas period but overall it has been better controlled over the last few months. Since Mr Tesco increased the minimum delivery from £25 to £40 I have been keeping an even closer eye on the food stores in general.
While sorting things before Christmas I found a pack of extra lean minced pork so today that went into the slow cooker with an onion, various sad looking apples and an onion and together they made rather a nice casserole. A couple of sweet potatoes, some unhappy carrots and a bunch of spring onions with a sell-by date of a couple of days ago made soup. My fridge looks almost respectable now.
And I am tackling the wool stash. A couple of days ago my poncho looked like this.
Now it looks like this. To the casual eye not a lot of difference.
