Wednesday was luxury day – we managed to get some reduced bananas and broccoli in the greengrocers and very excitingly we had a joint of pork that had been reduced from £4.99 to 70p and will do us for 2 days. We also had a break from porridge and had some scotch pancakes – with the value jam.
Fake Ryvita (Martin – he is trying to avoid wheat – particularly hard on £1 a day)
More digestives and Bourbons
Bombay mix (to keep Martin going)
I was so so so excited by the prospect of eating a banana – but even reduced that were still over 12p each which is a massive amount of the budget. But the banana was definitely my highlight. Some of the others were massively excited by the broccoli.
The dinner was very similar to what we would eat on a good day at home – we might well have had more veg and the stuffing might be value but usually we would have augmented it with grated apple or sosmix or something. The wedges would have had olive oil and paprika and turmeric and herbs rather than melted marg and salt.
We often have pancakes here as they are cheap and tasty – but I have to say I really like mine with natural yoghurt, banana and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey not value strawberry jam! But it was definitely a relief not to have porridge again.
