  • Hi everyone - a NSD today.:j

    Dinner tonight is another "meat free" night so having HM Macaroni Cheese, baby pots and a bowl of salad. Nice and easy;)

    Will need to pop to shops tomorrow for spuds, eggs and some bits for Saturday as we have friends coming over for Dinner. Have meal planned for Saturday so will go with a list and stick to it - don't need much as the meat that I will need is in the Freezer.:D

    Please would you put me down for £375 for Feb (sorry I can't change the font to red or bold :( ). My Feb month started on 22/1, I just need to check what I've spend so far as we did a big shop in cost co on 23rd

    I'm aiming to get this down by £100/month over the course of this year so this is a starting point to help me focus

    thank you

    Hi
    To make your writing bold - hilight the section you want to be bold and click on the "B" in the panel above, just above where you are writing - for coloured writing hilight the writing and click on the "A" in the panel above and a box will appear with different colours, just click on the colour you want and it will change

    Hope that makes sense - shout if it doesn't

    Oh that sounds great. What sort of quantities do you use on the fruit and veg? How runny is it once you've put the vinegar in? Just enough to cover, or not as much as that?

    It's a pound each of the fruit and veg and a pint of vinegar. I don't really do metric, but I think that would equate to ABOUT 450g of each and 560ml of the vinegar (don't quote me on this). It's not sloppy when you mix it - funnily enough, the best way to describe it is chutney consistency! You'd think it would be all raw-looking, but leaving it for 24 hours makes everything go the right colour. HTH.

    Did a quick spend in Waitrose today of £6.15 as I went in for cocoa and the lady was just marking down perfectly freezable yummy things from £3.50 to 85p and 99p - so got fresh pasta, mash (I know, but it's great to have in the freezer when you really can't be bothered - but only if on special offer, LOL), ravioli etc. So got enough food for about four meals plus the cocoa - pretty good going for yummy Waitrose stuff which is such good quality.

    Tonight's dinner is in the fridge but is now going in the freezer as DD reminded me it's Chinese New Year, so we're having sweet and sour chicken/veg with noodles - all available in fridge, just means swapping the meal plan round - with HM easy peasy microwave sweet and sour sauce which is so much nicer than bought. Kung Hei Fat Choy, everyone!

    ChocClare can I have the recipe for the Sweet and Sour Sauce? I spend a fortune on Uncle Ben's.
