Today I made the mistake of saving all the calories in our food until tea time. Both of us were famished and had a beating headache all day. On the plus side, I went to 99p store and got 120 biscuits for 99p, so might have some sweet carby sustenance for tomorrow! 0.8p each! Wahoo!!!!
bananas from the market = 50p for 10
bulgur wheat-stuffed pepper recipe
bulgur wheat 55p per pack (reduced at Asda) – 11p for 2 servings
oil drizzle 5p
red pepper 20p
1/2 rest of stir fried veg 18.75p
34.37p per portion
Put your pepper(s) halved into the oven, with 1 tsp drizzle of oil over. Cook until slightly softened. Meanwhile, cook your bulgur wheat as per packet instructions (normally similar to cous cous). I added 2 twists of my moroccan spice mill from M&S (which contains rose petals, cumin, coriander seeds, paprika, dried toms, garlic, demerara sugar, salt, caraway, dried chilli, dried red pepper, black pepper, coriander leaves and mint). I then just put the bulgur into the pepper. I quickly flash fried the stirfry veg, too.
Pea and ham soup
What a singularly unappealing picture. Best tea we’ve had all week though, as soup allowed us to have a slice of bread and a nibble of ham, too! Bloody lovely soup – I’d definitely recommend keeping your ham liquor, if you cook a piece of gammon, to make this soup!!
peas – 1.2kg for £1.40, used 500g =
stock – water I cooked gammon in on Sunday. Gammon was a different meal, but I reserved the cooking liquid to use as stock. I don’t think that’s cheating? Got to make use of everything you can, after all! So, the stock liquid included: 1/2 onion – 10p, stock cube 8.3p, 1/2 stick celery 5p, peppercorns 3p =
so the soup cost 26.3p
There was a corner of ham left, around 30p
+ 5p for slice of homemade bread, 50p to make
(40p flour, water, yeast 10p)
Tuesday = 5 + 60.1 + 34.37 = 99.47p
Just under. Phew.
