I 'm back on breadline today from lunchtime onward. I had intended to count Friday's breakfast as part of today's menu but, in fact, I didn't have any so that's that sorted.
Spent so far: £21.77
Still to spend: £38.23
Dinner: Savoury pork crumble (36p), carrots (6p), peas (8p), marmalade cobbler and custard (19p*)
Tea: Cheese on toast (paid),
Spent today: 69p which doesn't seem an awful lot but I've checked it through and it's right.
Back to school tomorrow.
* The marmalade cobbler was 8p for the lot as the marmalade had already been counted. I've counted the whole lot today and any I have another day (and it will make at least three desserts) will be 'free'. The custard is 1/3 of an sachet of instant that I got from Approved Foods. I will just make up 1/3 at a time.
I still have to taste the cobbler, of course. If it's OK I will blog about it (if I get permission) because it really is remarkably frugal.
