I joined in the challenge over on MZW at the beginning of the week.
I get my milk delivered from the milkman, eggs from the farmgate and have an organic veg box delivered weekly, so in theory I shouldn't have needed to go to the shops for any food items whatsoever.
I had also done a small grocery shop on Saturday so did have some bits in.
Breakfasts are usually cereal or fruit and yogurt.
Lunches are usually sandwiches or rolls. Unless Dave takes a hm frozen ready meal.
Here is what I cooked for dinners throughout the week:
Monday - we had Turkey Stir Fry with noodles, using all ingredients from either the freezer, pantry and veg box.
Tuesday - we had Savoury Mince Cobbler, again using some mince frozen from a previous batch of mince in gravy, adding in a scone cobbler topping and some cabbage from the veg box
Wednesday - it was Macaroni Cheese, but using penne pasta instead of macaroni, I also prepared a salad to go with this.
Thursday - was Pork Curry and Basmati Rice. Pork Curry base was already in the freezer from a previous batch so just had to add in some onions, garlic and pepper and cook the rice.
Friday - Omelettes and salad, with fried new potatoes, cooked these up specialy to be able to fry them off.
Saturday and Sunday - these 2 days days are a little difficult as myself and Dave aren't at home on Saturday, and David is at a friends, so Tom is having pizza and oven chips (admittedly already in the freezer); Sunday we are out for the day so will be sandwiches and maybe a jacket potato when we get home if still hungry.
I'm a 45 year old SAHM,although I do now work parttime as a dinner lady; partner to Dave for over 20 years who is the love of my life. Mother to 2 wonderful boys Thomas and David.We live in the UK in a small village (pub, village school and church - no shops) approx 15 miles from nearest town.
I enjoy cooking, card making and reading, and trying to do my bit for the environment and organic living.
