A leisurely breakfast with toast coffee and reading material :-)
Followed by a 'weighing everything out' session for this weeks rations.
Alan's butter/marg 6oz, his 'lard' once again is being taken in the form of 6 tablespoons of olive oil.
My lard/butter is 'Trex'
While we are once again classing my Dairy Free spread as my margarine.
Two ounces of grated cheddar for Alan, and 3oz grated Violife and one ounce of vegan parmesan style cheese for me.
Alan £4.66 worth of meat this week .
And once again 2oz bacon,2oz ham and three sausages.
I had another three Linda McCartney Rosemary and Onion vegan sausages.
I weighed out another jar with 8oz of sugar and topped up the coffee and tea jars with the 28 spoonfuls of coffee that weighs 2oz and another 21 teabags.
Then I realised that it should have been 8oz sugar each ... so I weighed out some more. We are getting way ahead with the sugar already.
Next I weighed out Alan's sweetie ration from the Christmas chocolate stash, there were only a couple of chocolates left in the bag after taking out his rations ... so I surprised him with a cup of tea and a little treat so I could have the empty bag to put his rations in ;-)
I was surprised to find that my ration weighed in at almost a full bar of this chocolate, just one row of two squares needed to be snapped off ...I too ate the extras.
Naughty but nice!!
Lunch was a little bit of a cheat for me. I had a bun from the freezer with some of my cheese ration and some of the Iceberg lettuce I mentioned yesterday. The rest will be used to make Coleslaw to go with our evening meals twice this week, starting with tonight.
Alan had two poached eggs on toast .... but I was almost to slow to catch it on camera!!
Our tea was a bit of a cheats tea, using the other three bread rolls from the pack I had thawed out for my lunch. Alan had his two steak burgers from this weeks ration with onion slices and cheese and I was naughty and had a vegan burger from the freezer. We had had a busy couple of hours moving the chickens from Chicken World to Chicken Land on the hillside to rest the grass in their old enclosure, and also so that they could keep Ethel, the sheep company. I really was not in the mood nor did I have the energy to do anything more for our tea.
We plonked ourselves down in from of a Dvd (Hope and Glory) and had a cider and beer with our feet up and our tea on our laps. A good end to a long day.
