Not just food but other resources too during these extraordinary times.
I made my own version of stovies by cooking sliced potato and sweet potato. Saute leek then add leftover beetroot from a vacuum pack and leftover chicken. Stir the potatoes into this mix and it makes a delicious dinner. I'm not sure if this would be counted as stovies in Scotland but it was near.
I had the ingredients for a batch of rocky road and am rationing myself to one piece a day. There are enough ingredients for another lot if I use the rest of the usual ginger biscuits and part digestives.
Savoury muffins were baked using up a jar of sun dried tomatoes and cheese. I had no chives or ham so used bacon and a small piece of finely chopped leek. These were fried together first.
Other resources are the internet. The worse thing at the moment is not seeing little GD who lives nearby so we are very close. We have been using the video on messenger to talk to each other and also skype. As GD is only two at first she was a bit bemused but has got used to it and gets very excited. They send me videos of her playing and I made a video of myself reading her a story. I had a job sending it but worked it out in the end by compressing it, saving it to google drive and sending attached to an email. GD loved it and kept asking for phone afterwards. I did try uploading it to Youtube and making it a private account then sending an invitation to DDIL but for some reason she couldn't open it. I thought Youtube would be good as they can put that on the smart tv
Messenger, Zoom, Whatsapp, Instagram and Facebook are all being used to keep communication open and check on family and friends. Plus good old telephone for those not on line.
My other resource is the lovely countryside around us for a daily walk. I do feel for people living in towns with the parks closed and told not to drive out for their walks. Here although living on the edge of a town I can walk for miles right from my front door.
So in spite of the difficulties there is lots to be thankful for.
