Breakfast this morning, the marmalade is nearly all gone now :-(
But I have a plan :-)
This weeks menu.
Alan's meat ration: sausage meat, chicken drumsticks and a tin of Spam
Total cost £4.25 ... so he's been a bit short changed this week, but I didn't have anything I could 'buy' from the freezer for the remaining 41p.
I read in one of my books that some weeks you could be forced to take part of your meat ration in tinned meat, so this week Alan is doing that ... he's been waiting for his Spam fritters for quite a while now!!
Two ounces of bacon, two of ham and just two sausages for him this week ....gosh he's been short changed in every direction hasn't he!!
My 'meat' ration, three Linda McCartney sausages and two frozen 'Nut Cutlets'.
I needed something easy and simple as I'm suffering from 'being in the kitchen/cooking fatigue'.
My fat ration.
Alan's fat ration.
Alan's sweetie ration ... look you get less than 4oz of sweets in these bags!!
Two of these made it up to his four ounces.
My sweetie ration.
My cheese ration ...
... and the rest of the block weighed out ready for next week.
Alan's cheese ration - cheddar from the freezer.
Our milk and a few of our eggs.
We have one of the older girls that's laying eggs with very thin shells now, so we tend to have these for ourselves.
The tea, coffee and sugar jars before adding this weeks supplies ...
... and again after.
This has been the thing that has surprised me the most, that we actually drink less than 28 cups of coffee and only around the same again in tea. Although Alan is only allowed 21 teabags he has been re-using some of his teabags and brewing up in the teapot, so I'm guessing he has around 28 - 30 cups of tea in a week.
I knew the sugar ration would hold up well, we hardly use any.
So I have taken as this weeks sugar ration some of my old jam sugar to use it up, and I will make some marmalade with it this week.
How would you cope with 8oz of sugar per week per person in your house?
