    Couscous or Rice with mango, almonds/ cashews, sultanas and turkey - sounds fine to me :D (well, it works with chicken, so should with turkey) - add a little moroccan spice mix to the mix if you have any, or a weeny bit of curry powder.

    Would like to cut this down to £300 to start with.

    Hi all, well i've spent a massive amount month again, mainly on ahem cheese. As some mice decided to eat it ie OH and DS1 and 2.
    Just hopefully got a months supply of flour
    4 x white bread flour
    4 x plain flour
    2 x self raising flour
    1 x wholemeal four
    2 x (8x7g) fast action yeast
    2 litres of oil
    brown lentils
    green lentils
    tom puree x 2
    coconut milk x2
    toms x 2
    kidney beans x 2

    fingers crossed i will only need to buy fresh from now on. Going to do an inventory of whats in the freezer, again.

    Got loads and loads of rhubarb off MIL so going to make some deserts for pack lunches and chop some up, freeze ready for next time.

    right going to sort tea out x
