I’m sorry that day 3-7 of my feed the family for £5 is a bit late, Grandma Gourmand came over to stay, Mini Gourmand went to Portugal with her other grandparents and I didn’t get time to write up my posts. Although my feed the family posts are a little late I know the readers who were following them will be glad to see how I got on, they will also be glad to hear that I have pictures!!
Breakfast was the same as each morning so far, Mr and Mini Gourmand had Shredded Wheat Summer Fruits cereal, I had Honey and Almond Special K, our breakfast worked out at £0.30.
Lunch was Vegetable pasta, I had cooked up a huge bag of reduced peppers on the Tefal Optigrill to use over the next couple of days. Today’s lunch consisted of some peppers, a vine tomato, cream cheese, dried herbs and dried pasta. Each portion worked out at 20p each meaning Lunch for everyone was £0.60.
Dinner was Falafel with some of the Optigrill peppers, some courgettes gifted to us from a friends allotment, some baby sweetcorn left over from a reduced pack and some salad leaves from our balcony. Dinner worked out at £2.15
Snacks were some Tesco own brand Digestive biscuits with a cup of tea costing £0.16
I spent a total of £3.21 on food today, my tip for today is to grow herbs or salad leaves at home even if you only have a small space like a windowsill.
