    Hi Everyone,

    I have set us a budget of £100 for the next 3 weeks. This is for 3 of us, but hoping to get nearer £70. We are then off on holiday to France in our motorhome.

    The freezer is rammed, the storecupboard is full so I do NOT need to go shopping, except for bread, milk, fruit and veg.

    Hello, I'm going to add this to this month's Grocery Challenge.

    Good luck and enjoy your holiday :j

    have you heard about he petition to stop this weedkiller,AMINOPYRALID,, that does not kill grass , that seems to be going in one end of cattle and horses and still coming out of the other end and the manure is then used by allotments and people with gardens,, and is killing some vegetables ,, but then the ones you eat have it in ,, MAFF says you can eat it but would you want to , you try to be organic and this is what you get

    Well thats officially another NSD grocery wise (although treated myself to a 12 hole muffin tin and a new juicer from my treats money). Made angelnikki's lemon chicken- mmmmm, although also just spotted the other recipe too, its the one with basil etc from Waitrose (cannot remember who posted it but thanks, will try that next time).
    Hope you all have had MS days :money: .
    :wave:
    Might be back on later, depending on how long I can stay awake for!

    Just popped in to update my sig. As I expected the arrival of DD1 for the weekend has meant a bit of extra spending and I have spent another £7.06 today (in Waitrose!). Still hope to be on target though. I have made burgers for tonight's dinner, stretching the mince I would have used for two of us to make enough for three by adding lentils and breadcrumbs and mushrooms! Otherwise, not much happening - DH still working, but we did manage a trip over to MIL this pm to fit her new tv, so brownie points there!

    Off to get supper ready. Have a nice evening everyone.
