Remember the three bags of cooked rice, that I stashed in the freezer at the start of the week, the stodgy, claggy rice ...... I have to confess ... I thawed them out and threw them to the chickens. The chickens were very grateful and so was I .... I just couldn't face eating that stodge.
I needed something light, something crunchy and fresh for my tea .... so I raided the polytunnel and came up with the start of something wonderful.
I sat and worked out that each one cost me 0.2p, so that means I get five whole radishes, leaves included, for just 1p. Bliss, something fresh and crunchy, just what I've been missing.
Breakfast yesterday was egg on toast again ... this time it was a normal sized egg, you can just see my small slice of toast peeking out from underneath it. By cooking the egg lightly the yolk is gorgeously runny and I can just about manage without the butter I normally have on my toast.
Lunch was the soup that had been stashed in the freezer along with three slices of toast. Still very tasty and filling but now getting slightly unsatisfying, but perhaps that's just because I know I can't have anything else. Choice is a wonderful thing, this week highlights that so well, choice is what is missing for so many people that live 'below the line' permanently through no choice of their own.
We are so lucky.
Once again I have to say BIG THANKS to the lovely folk that have been over to my donations page HERE and left their donations for this wonderful cause. This time I would like to thank - Linda Wright, Jas Towers and Juliette Dean ... you are stars, thank you.
Back tomorrow with the photos of my finals day's food, I have just about enough to see me through to the end ... I think!!
