Breakfast was as per usual - Marmalade on toast. Breakfast is usually marmalade on toast anyway, it's not a compromise, its a norm. Tomorrow, it will still be marmalade on toast and probably still the basics marmalade and budget spread as I have loads left. Breakfast cost me 12p. How will I ever cope with paying £5.00 for a breakfast ever again?
Lunch was a good old bowl of soup with bread, the last portion in the pot. It has got thicker as the days have gone on and it could have really done with a good shake of black pepper, but it filled a gap and tasted good. Lunch cost me 27p.
Dinner was going to be baked arancini on a bed of crushed tomatoes and herbs. I cooked and cooled some rice, then mixed it with a little curry sauce in the hope that I could get it to bind together - not a chance!
So a compromise had to be made........ Curried Fried Rice with Beans.
- 100g cooked cooled rice (4p)
- Curry Sauce from jar (9p)
- Half tin of Indian Beans (25p)
- Spread (1p)
What you do:
- Put a portion of spread in a frying pan and heat on medium heat, be careful it doesn't burn.
- Meanwhile mix the cold rice, beans and curry sauce together in a dish.
- When the spread is bubbling drop in the curry mix and stir until thoroughly heated through.
Dinner cost me 39p.
My food cost for the day was.....
|Curried Rice & Beans||22p|
I am craving variety today, I have never been hungry throughout this challenge, but I am so BORED with eating the same things, just mixed up differently. I know I am actually not eating the same thing, but everytime I look in the fridge I see the same things, even though I have tried to make things quite different in my recipe creations, it's still boring.
I want eggs, cheese, cider, wine, SALAD, sauces, spices, herbs.
Tomorrow I shall work out how much worth of food I have left in my stash.
I am so pleased to tell you that I am only £2.00 off my target. That is the price of a soft drink in a pub, a sandwich & crisps at lunchtime, a bus ride to town, a newspaper & bar of chocolate. If you haven't already and you can afford £2.00 would you be so lovely as to donate to this great cause? I thank you.
