Food and Budget Update: 10/09 to 16/09/2016

Last week, the weekend went missing. I know things happened and I know I ate but I wasn’t really responsible for any of it. On Friday afternoon, I did my shopping and forgot to photograph it. I bought peppers, onions, mackerel, eggs, cocktail cherries and fruit. I also bought washing detergent and fabric conditioner but although I’m sure I bought other stuff I can’t for the life of me remember what! I do know it was below £15 but the details escape me.

Saturday night I went to Kathy’s for dinner (smoked salmon pasta was amazing!), Sunday I ate a crossiant for breakfast and had a cheese and bacon burger at Joe’s birthday party.

Monday was fruit for breakfast and work lunch. I had duck flatbread which was amazing but again no dinner.

Tuesday was more fruit for breakfast and courgette soup for lunch. Tuesday night dinner was allotment tomato sauce and pasta with Ma, I also added some grilled courgettes because I needed to make some room in the fridge for the new ones and felt we should eat something green with dinner.img_4940

Wednesday was fruit for breakfast and salad for lunch. For dinner, vegetables (onion, pepper, courgettes) cooked with spices (smoked paprika, cumin, ground corriander, garlic powder and chilli) and a fried egg. Not pretty but about right.img_4941

Thursday’s breakfast and lunch was the same as Wednesday.

Thursday night I made this pasta dish. It was loosely based on Rachel Roddy’s recipe for the Guardian that went up that day. I used my own homegrown tomatoes, it was good, you should try it.Friday night was pizza night because what is life without tradition…
