We went shopping towards the end of last week and it officially ended the £2 House Keeping Challenge, we could not keep below the £26 that I had left in the house keeping tin and manage to afford all that we needed for our next Challenge. This little lot came to just below £35.
This one is the first Challenge totally started by Lovely Hubby and one that I'm more than happy to join in with.
He watched a programme the other week called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, and was totally inspired especially by the lorry driver Phil's story. He decided then and there to give this ago and asked me to order a Juicer that night. I did, and what we are about to do may go down in our family folklore.
Here's a link to the programme if you would like to watch it, it is available for only TWO MORE DAYS, although you can buy it on Dvd on Amazon now.
His new toy arrived on Thursday and already it has made us litres and litres of vegetable and fruit juice. In fact all that's left in the fridge from all those fruits and vegetables in the top picture are a few sad ends of things. It's dangerous to stand still in this house at the moment in case you get grabbed and juiced.
Only joking of course.
The juice that's being churned out by this magnificent machine is really good and I must say I'm really enjoying being the official taster. Lovely Hubby doesn't like to stick to recipes and up to now he has just been pushing whatever comes to hand through the machine. If the juice tastes a bit too 'leeky' he'll add an apple, if it tastes too fruity he'll add some cabbage leaves from the Veggie Patch. He just keeps adding and adding until it tastes really good. When all the flasks and jugs are filled I have to get him to stop.
I'm off to the shops again today to get more supplies, although I think I may have to hide them until all the current jugs and flasks are empty.
