Breeda describes her experience with cooking from the Smart Store Cooking recipe book. Cooking fresh from scratch while storing and reducing waste and saving money, a new take on an old-fashioned idea. 
“I had my dinner from it and mom had her dinner from it and there was still some leftover so I put it into my lunchbox and had it for lunch the next day” – Chloé describes her experience with cooking from the Smart Store Cooking recipe book utilising the ingredients already in her family home. Planning nutritious, easy to follow meals while reducing food waste is something Chloé incorporates into her busy student life.
It’s only a few months since Eily Buckley starred in Daniel and Majella’s Road Trip, but now she’s in the latest SuperValu advert on our TV’s, in our cinemas, and anywhere else there’s a screen, and she’s back driving a bus full of children again, like she did for many years ! Huge Congrats to Eily, who appears at about 0:42 in the video below:
We thank Mary Louise Ward for such helpful advice regarding becoming a Smarter Shopper. Mary Louise will again be visiting Supervalu this Friday. (S.R.)
Become a Smarter Shopper
On my recent visits to O’Keeffe’s SuperValu I had the pleasure of chatting about smart shopping with lots of lovely Millstreet locals. They were enthusiastic about the Smart Store Cooking food waste initiative, and they were keen to learn ways to improve habits – especially how to become a smarter shopper.
Practical meal planning and reliable shopping lists are probably the two most important steps to becoming a smarter shopper and helping to reduce food waste at home.
When planning meals, always check what you already have and include these items in your meal plan. It’s better to shop often rather than trying to bulk buy for the entire week – your week-long plans will often change and food goes to waste. To make life easier, you could assume you will cook a number of your family favourites every week. Meal planning is kept simple, especially if you can stock up with regular store cupboard essentials.
Keep a single shopping list within easy reach, and add to it as you think of the ingredients you will need or run out of. [read more …] “Becoming a Smarter Shopper”

Blessed with glorious weather the large attendance enjoyed a supremely enjoyable afternoon outdoors at O’Keeffe’s Supervalu, Minor Row, Millstreet at the official launch of Smart Store Cooking. Chairman of Millstreet Tidy Towns Association, Derry Sheehan addressed the large crowd and called upon Eily Buckley to cut the launch ribbon. Most impressive stalls, lots of delicious food, face painting, music and the Animal Road Show all helped to make the occasion such a wonderful success. Key Coordinators Joe Fitzgerald and Áine Murphy of Supervalu plus Stephen O’Sullivan of CCC together with members of Millstreet TTA ensured a great occasion where we were delighted to help with the Live Facebook transmission worldwide. This may be viewed on the Facebook of Millstreet Tidy Town. Here we share the first of our selections of images from the very memorable and important occasion. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

This afternoon, Millstreet Tidy Town are hosting the launch of Smart Store Cooking, a new project enabling people to plan, shop and cook more efficiently, saving on time, while being cheaper on the pocket at the till, cheaper on the pocket for bin collection, and better for the environment by reducing food waste.
This project is hugely important and is at its core part of the sustainability project that will reduce landfill and help in reduction of waste. It is the first of its kind in the country and is being funded by the Anti Dumping initiative 2018. We would very much appreciate if you attend this event. It would be great opportunity for us to showcase how this will work and hopefully you might pick up a few tips.
