End of day 8
Another successful day with a nice surprise at the end. You would think that the more active I am, the more I want to eat but, in fact, the reverse is true. The days I slog away at the allotment are the days when it is much easier to stick to the plans. Weird but I'm not complaining!
B: porridge with rhubarb and natural yogurt Total 5p
L beans on toast and an apple Total 22p
D: pork layer bake Total 43p
The pork layer bake would have cost more if I didn't have apfs, gifted meat, garden produce and YS stuff and if I had gone for a full on cheese sauce rather than a bechamel sauce with grated cheese on top. I'm glad I went for the latter - it was delicious and I will make use of it more as cheese is expensive both in money and in calories.
AND - it was so filling that I have just under half leftover for a nice lunch tomorrow - that's a bonus I didn't expect.
I'll post the recipe when I have time to write it up.
This is the state of play with the budget:
Today I spent 70p
Budget so far £9.00
Money in hand: £1.80
