So today I finished off the shopping for our 5 days living below the line.
Here is Monkey with our rations!
Here's what we got
|Frozen mince beef||140|
|Yellow split peas||70|
|Loaf of Bread x 2||94|
|Yogurt x 8||66|
|Crisps x 12||66|
|Chopped Toms x 3||93|
|1 kg onions||75|
|Pancakes x 2||30|
Wow, you might think, we can spoil ourselves with £1.51! But we still have to count oil, garlic, spices, salt and pepper in, and sugar and lemon juice when we have pancakes, so that will take it up to about £14. The last £1 will be our emergency pound in case we need more milk, and I may even splash out on an orange or apple for James!
Tonight I've been making the lentil soup for the week, and have even convinced some of my colleagues to take part on Wednesday lunch, so will have more soup to make tomorrow night to feed another 12 people!
I'm off to eat a slice of my nieces birthday cake, and enjoy a brew, as it will be my last for 5 days!
