I totally forgot to post about this weeks shopping, so here we are on a catch up. At the start of the week I spent my £5 Tesco coupon and £2.60 cash on the shopping in the photo. I decided to buy us a banana each, even though they would not have been available during the war ... I don't want to risk scurvy for the sake of a challenge ;-)
There was nothing else we needed, so nothing else was bought. Alan requested some more salted peanuts to have with his beer while the rugby is on, so I relented and let him have his little treat and I've been seeing and reading so many people on wartime rations having tomatoes that I think the urge to get some was great ... so that was my 'treat'.
Tomatoes a 'treat' ... gosh I have got into character!!
Left in The Purse £303.41
Someone mentioned that my homemade bread always look pretty perfect ... it doesn't if you forget all about it and leave it in the oven for almost three hours!!
The chickens benefited ... but Ethel turned her nose up at it.
Yesterdays food was simple. Toast for breakfast before I set off into England and lunch with my Mum and son - British Restaurants are brilliant ;-)
Alan stayed at home working and had some soup and toast for lunch.
Our evening meal was the rest of the Woolton Pie, this time reheated with it's mashed potato top and served with sausages, two for Alan, one for me. I have to say I think I prefer it with a pastry top ... mashed potatoes on top of a very potato-ey base makes it quite bland whereas the wholewheat flour and suet pastry top gave it much more flavour.
The draw for the giveaway book is being done this morning :-)
