So this food week wasn’t overshadowed so entirely by the mice but I’m still gradually replacing things. The shopping list looked like this
So there were some changes, I decided I wanted to try a new recipes so needed porridge oats, other things I bought that weren’t on the list; spinach, stuffed pasta, passata, olive oil, fizzy water. Things on the list I didn’t buy caster sugar (again), pesto and one of the replacement herbs and spices, I’m replacing the thrown out packets with jars, so loosing one isn’t a huge deal. The spinach, stuffed pasta and olive oil were all on offer and the fizzy water just tastes more interesting at the end of the day and is better and cheaper than coke, root beer etc.
The total came to £14.79, so 21p in the jar, every little helps and all that!
This weeks breakfast were yoghurt and granola with peaches and lunches were a salad with bulgar wheat (along the lines of this cous cous salad) which I ate with a spinach salad. The pineapple and pears were for snacking on.
Cottage pie and green beans on Saturday.
Chicken and peppers with rice on Sunday night and remixed on Tuesday.Soup on Monday night (and that is the last of the soup I made in preparation for my six weeks recovering from the osteotomy….)
Black Bean burgers and veg on Wednesday.
FNP on Friday.The week felt like it was tough so I’m just pleased to have got to the end of it on budget and eating well!
