Here is the food I had left at the start of the today, my last day Living Below the Line.
I sort of set myself a Challenge to see how much of it I could use, not necessarily to eat today, but to see how many meals I could make and freeze for future use.
I've done well with the homegrown stuff and this is the other fresh stuff I have left.
This was the Pumpkin just before I popped it into the oven. I was going to make a Pumpkin Curry for tea tonight but it cooked much quicker than I anticipated (okay...so I was busy touring Blogland and forgot about it.....) so now it has been added to a big pan of soup I have on the go.
I actually have two pans of soup on the go, one contains the Roasted Pumpkin, the last jar of Tomato and Garlic Sauce and a handful each of the frozen veggies, the other contains the last half of the soup mix and a couple of the stock cubes along with the saved vegetable water from yesterdays Veggie Burger making. We will most likely eat a bit of one of these as a starter for tea tonight, the others will be portioned and frozen, just so I know, out of interest, how many meals I would have had left.
I think I've planned very well this year I don't have that many left overs, the only thing not touched is this.....
....sorry Aunt Bessie I had nothing to pour you on!
Back tomorrow with the final round up of what I'm eating today, the day's costings and how much money I've managed to live on over the last five days.
If you tempted to try this for yourself read this, an email I got from Stephen at Live Below the Line...
