Meatballs & Oven Baked Chips tonight :-)

Meatballs & Oven Baked Chips tonight :-)

Hi everyone,

My meal tonight was some Meatballs in sauce (it is a pre-packed product, and it was being sold very cheap due to it being on it's use-by date - and I bought it as I like a bargain, and I also know my hubby loves meatballs occasionally) and I baked some New Potato chips (homemade) to have alongside. 5 minutes in the microwave and then 25 mins baking in the oven, and they were very tasty.

I've also had a walk today - and took a couple of photos of the flowers I saw on my route - one being the beautiful hedge rows, and the second some planted flowers - both very pretty.

Hi Little_toad,

Thanks! I was pleased with how the chips turned out. They were very tasty. :-)

Great to hear you've planted some bulbs and that they've come through.

Enjoy your evening.

Your meal looks delicious 😋 I love a bargain as well my hubby does most of the shopping and he's great at getting bargains, he seems to know when Sainsbury's have some good one's and icelands fresh and frozen have a lot of sell by bargains all you have to do is freeze them, I hope you are well and enjoying your evening

Hi Zest, 👩‍🍳 bargains are great and its the ingredients that make or break ready meals so with your home baked new potato chips a great meal and if this keeps Mr Zest happy you're onto a winner.

I love your photo's of flowers as it shows spring has sprung and do I see wild garlic in your hedgerow? where I go on my bike is through a copse thats is full of wild garlic and the smell when it flowers.

Enjoy your day now. 😊

HI Jerry,

Thanks, we both enjoyed that meal very much.

Yes, I think you spotted some wild garlic in the hedgerow, very observant! :-) I know what you mean about that garlicky smell - it's quite ok though - I like garlic!

Hope you're enjoying your day.

Really like your idea of softening the chips 1st by micro, I do this with a baked potato and it's a pity my logic didn't see fit to pass it over to the chip idea! It looks scrummy all of it!
