will be quite honest here I am hopeless in the kitchen, so bad my mum is giving
me cooking lessons even though I am now 34!
But last week I learnt to make a very appetising beef casserole so all
hope is not lost…
I thought I would try and rise to the challenge and actually make the “Sandwich
of the Century” as part of the Hellmann’s campaign to encourage us to use leftovers.
I think it is a worthwhile cause as they are encouraging people to
reduce their food waste. Given how
little some people have to eat in the world, making the most of what we do have
rather than chucking it recklessly away seems a better option all round and
saves a small fortune in the process.
It’s amazing what you can do with your food; just adding
in some lovely Hellmann’s mayonnaise for the extra WOW factor and away you go
another lovely meal but made by re-using rather than heading back to the shops
to buy yet more food!!!
had some cooked ham left over from lunch, it was thick and tasty but usually it
ends up in the dog’s tummy, but I thought this would be perfect to re-use for
us. I felt peckish in the evening, eyed
up the mayonnaise bottle and thought why not the time has come lets embrace the
sandwich challenge. Without guidance
from my mum I admit I turned to the Internet, if I had any eggs I would have
created a French toasted sandwich, the bread toasted after being dipped in the
egg mixture. It sounded delicious but
the challenge was to re-use not head to the shops and get more in!
I did not completely luck out but ham, mayonnaise, mustard, some grated onion and carrot and viola an edible sandwich lovingly created by me!!! Who knows what I might create next time I
feel the urge to re-use!
