Good morning!

Today's plans:
B:  porridge with fruit yogurt
L:  mini omelette (bit of mushroom, bit of red pepper, garden herbs, one egg, bit of spray oil, one mini-pan) and side salad.
D:  Chicken with lemon and courgette couscous (new recipe, fingers crossed), broccoli; fruit (probably stewed plums as I have some in the freezer) and natural yogurt
Ss:  apples x 2; there will be more as it's a swimming and allotment day but not sure what yet.

From the freezer:
The chicken
Some of last year's courgettes which I sliced and froze
Some plums to stew
I'm just wondering if I have some broccoli in the freezer too - must investigate!

The frugal factor:
Not an expensive day today.  The chicken is medium cost but more or less everything else is reasonably frugal and I'm using um old freezer food and some of last year's harvest.  The plums were a gift.
The yogurt is in the yogurt maker as I type and the fruit yogurt for the porridge was yellow sticker.

Have a lovely frugal day!


  1. We have committed to eating down the freezers so for a few weeks I will only be buying perishables. I have tried to do this a few times but fell into the "bargain trap" and could not leave them on the shelf. I have given myself a strict weekly budget and will only take that cash with me to the shops. That should nail my habit.

  2. I think the problem is that one runs out of the things one used the most (obviously) and it does take effort to look further down, risk frostbite and find the other stuff. I like your only cash strategy - good luck with it.
