Got given a marrow today too - I always say yes, then wonder what on earth to do with it, that my family will actually eat. Does anyone have any good marrow recipes?

Well Greent maybe what you need is an extra freezer! You'd only fill it up though! Just as I would:rotfl:
I made the veggy chilli today, cooked the chicken late afternoon and have just taken it apart and put it in a bowl where it will sit overnight in out 2nd fridge(in the garage) away from DH.
Just need to decide what we will do with it tomorrow. Ive got some rather old potatoes that I may make wedges with. Don't want to do anything with pastry so may even serve it on its lonesome with some gravy yet. Thawed out a pack of very nice sausages also for those who want them and will prob cook brocolli and carrots with it. I know-its Sunday today not tomorrow but I had to cook my beans up which were in the fridge so I had to do the chilli and not really enough room in the freezer for storage now.
Also mad a "quick cheesy herby loaf" today which is a recipe I got from here some time ago-no yeast needed. I made it in a silicone loaf tin today and its the best one yet. I had some rather old cheese to use up so that went in it also. Had that with our chilli and rice. I actually weighed the rice today as I always seem to either cook too much or too little. Brown rice-80g per peson-served 5 but I found the 320 g I cooked was in fact enough for 6-as was the chilli. Cost under £2 for 6 servings inc the rice but not the bread.

Laisbojar do you include all of those items in your grocery challenge? DIY definitely doesn't come into ours and days out/activities would be a different budget too. No matter what, don't knock yourself out about it as it is the school hols after all.
