Silly SWMBO – you forgot to post this even though you wrote it days ago!

Dahling, the marathon blogging session is coming to an end.  I promised to document our shopping and eating for a week and I’ve done so.  I am happy to continue providing our weekly shopping receipts and dinner menus if that is helpful.  You lot are so quiet, I will probably just have to decide telepathically what you would like best.

A good month into our severe grocery budgeting and I am finding it easier everyday.  We now finish the week with extra food.  Not only that, but we have made extra quantities of some items and frozen them for quick future meals.  This week, we also had $15 leftover.  Remarkable!

Breakfast – Toast with homemade nutella/lemon curd, open-faced egg sandwiches

A big pan of roasted sparrows?  Nope.  These be artichokes.

Lunch – Quick grab of whatever before heading out for a hilarious live theatre performance with the family (pay what you can).

Garlic pasta for the hollow legs.

Snack – Extruded, processed veggie straws with spicy yogurt dip.  Oddly delicious.
