Good morning! 

Lots of salad worked really well yesterday so I guess I am sticking to the same today.

B:  muesli with fruit and natural yogurt
L:  hummus with salady things
D:  tuna pasta salad; frozen fruit foam
S:  apples x 2

The hummus is from the freezer (still getting there slowly) and there's certainly loads more freezer space for the summer and autumn harvests

The muesli is a gift, the yogurt is home made, the hummus is yellow sticker and the tuna pasta will be home made too.  The breakfast fruit takes it out of the very low cost area but not bad all the same and, with all the salad as well, good on F&V.

I was frugal in another way yesterday.  After noting that my garden arbour looked somewhat forlorn, I dug out the seat pad I got last year, found some old bedroom curtains and some bits of fabric and made a cover for the pad and three cushion covers, using a disappearing nine block pattern for the cushions.  Really pleased with the result - I had to buy the seat pad but the rest, including the chshion innards were all things I already had so not only have I used up some clutter and cleared some space, I have made something satisfyingly useful.  Gotta love a bit of frugality, eh?


  1. I am thinking I should find an adult education sewing class. I bought a sewing machine a couple of years ago, but I've never used it, but number 1 son made himself a costume of trousers and waistcoat, just by eye (and maybe a YouTube video).
    I am on a freezer mission now...

    1. I think you'd get a good deal of pleasure, to be honesty. Well worth thinking about.
      And good luck with the freezer!
