I could easily have done a grocery shop on Sunday, but that would have been cheating, in the spirit of stocking up for the event. I didn't want to do that, and so the first shopping has come in at £23.90 - ever so slightly over budget for the week, but we had run out of a lot of things!!
2kg frozen veg (mixed cauliflower, broccoli and carrots) 1.98
335g bunch of fresh broccoli x 2 = 1.50
Grapes = 2.00
2 cauliflowers for 1.00
Braeburn apples, 2 @ 1.80 = 3.60
Assorted other cheese 4.35 (Babybels etc)
I would have taken a photo of this little haul, but we have started eating it already!
The menu plan for the week has looked like this:
Tuesday - Toad in the Hole or plain sausages with veg
Wednesday - spaghetti bolognese with carrots & broccoli on the side
Thursday - Tuna pasta bake with veg
Friday - Slowcooker chicken [for after gym]
Saturday - leftover chicken with vegetable risotto
Sunday - Home made pizza/Haddock and veg
I have the makings of all of this in the house, either in the stores or in the fridge/freezer, so no more shopping is necessary - thank goodness - and I will be making plans to shop alone next week, somehow!
