My best friend during Live Below the Line week has been my scales.
Checking the weights of everything that I have cooked to make sure that the food I had planned for the week would actually last for the full five days and not leave me hungry and scrabbling around for food I simply didn't have, or even worse lead me into temptation and into raiding the main food cupboards for something to fill me up and thus giving me a guilty conscience.
I didn't split my veggies like Jack, I left mine as a mixed bag ....
It was Veggie Curry and rice for lunch today .... I'll spare you yet another photo of peanut butter on toast for breakfast ... I bet you're getting as sick of seeing it as I am of eating it. It'll be while before I'm tempted to that particular breakfast again!!
I did pull out some of the broccoli pieces from the veggie bag to go in my return visit to fishy pasta. Definitely the 'Dish of the Week' taste wise.
I'm really glad I bought the bag of Frozen Mixed Veg, although it's mostly carrots it's really good to know that I have a whole kilo of veggies in my diet for the five days of the challenge. The Tikka Masala sauce for just 20p as well is so much better than the pasta sauce, I'll definitely be buying that one again.
Not a bad Day Four, the Sparkling Water is just about lasting too, I've been rationing it out, treating it like an evening glass of wine, actually drinking it in my wine glass with lots of ice.
Thank you so much for all your wonderful donations.
HERE is the link to my fundraising page, it's the final couple of days now, I wonder if pound by pound I can creep up to get nearer to my target of £400. It would just take 102 of you donating £1 or 204 of you donating 50p ..... every penny counts.
Back tomorrow with my final days food for Live Below the Line, and then it will be back to normal living in the country ... which will come to a huge relief to my brother ... he hates my foodie posts :-)
