Last Saturday I decided to restrict my food budget to £1 a day for four weeks to try and sort out some of my excessive food stores. Yesterday I had my first spending session - £4.02 on fresh salad stuff and some strawberries. As yet I have only herbs ready in the garden so lettuce, tomato and cucumber were needed. I've got peppers in the fridge and the radishes on sale didn't look very good so they were easy to resist. That left me with 98p in the kitty to which I have added a further £1 today.
Food store attacks have included some custard which went very nicely with a rhubarb crumble which I had been given, orzo and goats cheese, and some meringues which cried out to be eaten with some strawberries.
