SHOPPING The shopping came to £5.35 and I had supplemental things from the allotment
COOKING AND EATING
Weekend breakfasts were a carrot cake muffin with raspberries.Saturday lunch was a chuck it all in rice thing because I was trying to use things upSaturday night dinner consisted of the braised lentils with additional vegetables and cheese. The green things are thinned basil seedlings!For Sunday lunch I made a sausage tart, loosely based off this recipe, with sage from the plot, we ate it with new potatoes, so a tick for carbs and protein but a black mark for complete lack of veg, I should have sauted the courgette! The leftover tart was lunch this week, with a chopped salad and rhubarb compote for pudding.Weekday breakfasts were apricot breakfast crisp and yogurt.Monday night dinner was the leftover potatoes with peppers, mushroom and onion
I didn’t eat dinner on Tuesday but on Wednesday I had the last of Saturday’s lentils with an egg.Thursday was another missed dinner
Some weeks I spend all of the £15 budget and feel that there is no food in the house, this week though, it felt like there was so much food. This is what my fridge looked like on Sunday evening.A lot of that was food for lunches and breakfast but seriously, the fridge was packed. I seemed to have a lot of food left over from last week and using that up was key, then things that I hadn’t planned for like the sausage tart (a last minute, what do I have that will make a nice lunch for Ma?) ended up supplying lunch for the 4 days I needed it.
Best thing I ate this week, salad that I grew! Sometimes simple things are best!
