Day 234 - Leftover Potatoes

Even though we have lots of potatoes I don't waste them if I cook too many, and when I had some over from my tea the other night I put them in a bowl in the fridge to give me inspiration for the next nights meal ... I like to have a starting point there for me.

I picked a few peas from the plants in the net tunnel, and realising that they were really not enough to bother cooking on their own and could so easily have disappeared as a snack on the way back to the house, I remembered my potatoes and decided to add the two together.

So with a tin of mackerel fillets from the cupboard ...

... an egg yolk for dipping purposes and some breadcrumbs from the freezer ...

... I turned my leftover potatoes into two pretty large fish cakes.
(One broke as I was breadcrumbing it, hence the funny shape.)

The funny shaped one for tea last night ... and the other is for tea tonight while Lovely Hubby has a steak from the freezer.  I think they will be served with some homemade spicy wedges ... a good use of some more of the potato stash.

Today is a No Spend Day


  1. Your tea looks so good...will have to try this with my own leftovers. Thanks!

  2. Its surprising what can be made when needs must.
