Groceries – Day 14: Convenience food

15 Mar
My apologies for posting this a day late – Both yesterday and today have been very busy. It appears that despite all rumors of the contrary, I still have a life off-line as well. But I’ll try to get everything completely up-to-date again right away.

Content of pantry before shopping: 

- Perishable:

   1 portion (approx. 130 grams) of liver
   2.5 chillies
   2 pots fruit yoghurt
   1 small potato
   half an onion
   small leftover of mixed vegetables (frozen)
   garlic (one bulb plus two small cloves)
   margarine (~220 grams)

 - Non-perishable:

   Most of 750 grams of salt
   Flour (about a quarter left)
   Mixed herbs
   Basil (frozen)
   Lemon thyme (frozen)
   1 can mushy peas
Budget available for day 14: £ 2.50
Budget used: £ 0.50
Budget left: £ 2.00
Budget available for day 15: £ 3.00

I was going to have a pretty long, busy day (more about that later), so I just made sure to get some convenience food – a can of ravioli. I also figured that with at least a real tomato in there and some basil from the freezer, it was going to be a halfway decent thing to have for lunch. I still had plenty of healthy stuff for breakfast and supper, so didn’t worry about that.

So that was that. A can of ravioli and a tomato.

Day 14: Groceries

Which once again means that I could save half the budget of the day. I thought this was a one pound per day challenge, not a 50p per day challenge? Still, looking at what I actually needed this was the right thing to do.
