I'm carrying on with the food theme today, as if we haven't seen enough of it this last week or so, ha ha. Ruth is curious as to what I eat, so here goes with yesterday and todays meals.
So, for breakfast yesterday I had bran flakes with soya milk and a blueberry yogurt on top. For lunch I had a spud in the microwave topped with some houmous. cold pasta salad with tuna topped with a chopped spring onion, and five baby tomatoes. The pasta cost 45p it was reduced, and will give me three portions.
In the afternoon I finished off the last of the trifle. This is my evening meal. More pasta salad, this time with prawns. I bought two of these salad tubs so a lot of pasta is being consumed at the moment, ha ha. Steamed new potatoes, sprouts, and a large onion.
Breakfast this morning was bran flakes with soya milk, topped with a banana. Today's lunch was three raw mushrooms, more pasta salad with a spring onion, five small pickled onions and five small tomatoes, and some pickled beetroot.
This afternoon I ate a small flapjack, 19p from B & M. Tonights meal was steamed new potatoes, five sprouts, (there are four left for tomorrow), and half a portion of cheese and broccoli pasta. This also had peas in it and cost 57p reduced from £2.30. To stretch the sauce a bit further I added a spoon of cream cheese with garlic, and stirred in a spoon of plain yogurt just before serving it up.
I always have a mug of coffee first thing in the morning, I have tried other drinks, but I do like just one mug to get me going. Throughout the day I have diluted fruit juice, which is mainly water with a taste of juice. Either carton juice or cordial out of a bottle.
At the moment I am eating from the fridge to use up the out of date food, when that is gone I shall have a few days where I eat out of the cupboard, tins and packets, and the freezer. I try and stretch my weekly shopping to ten days or more, sometimes two weeks. As I have mentioned many times before, I shop on price, try to get the best food I can for the least amount of money. I don't mind if I eat the same thing for several days, nothing gets wasted.
