Here's a quick catch up from yesterday first...
The wartime chocolate sponge all finished with melted chocolate and smarties.
On the baking table..Daisy is busy icing and decorating her fairy cakes while I filled this cake with homemade raspberry jam (a gift) and buttercream.
Tea was pork chops, mash, green beans, peas and gravy.
Henry testing out his new pram shoes :) they stayed on for a short while anyway.
Daisy and Henry playing together with Henry's new fisher price chatterbox phone.
We had to buy a new water tray for the garden. Daisy's fishing! She would play outside all day long.
Today for tea we had chicken salad with fresh bread and butter...
This morning I had my groceries delivered. I've meal planned for next week and taken some of the recipes from the 1940s book 'Eating for Victory'. I took photos of my shopping to share with you. There's still quite a lot and I want to reduce it but I'm doing that gradually. I will cook from scratch everyday and bake. I bought a lot of vegetables to fill me up and very little rubbish!
Fruit...I'm trying so hard to eat more fruit. There's cooking apples too for a couple of recipes. There's plenty for us all here. I'm thinking about getting a fruit box delivered now.
Veg...I said I bought a lot!
Salad...salad can get boring for me so I got a few different bits this week. I'll be making coleslaw and I haven't bought bags of salad this week. Round lettuce and little gems instead.
Meat...a small joint of pork and leg of lamb for the Sunday roast. I got two chickens because I like to eat cold chicken for lunch sometimes and it works out so much cheaper to buy a whole chicken than the cooked chicken slices.
Baking supplies...now that I'm back into baking, I need the supplies in my cupboard but the cupboard I was using wasn't big enough so I've had a rearrange in my kitchen.
Treats...Saturday is treat night! We watch a film with Daisy and have some goodies. We won't eat all of this! This section of the shopping has been reduced a lot!
I know this looks a lot but I'm trying not to hoard food and cleaning things. I didn't buy any toiletries this week because we have loads already. I'm getting there, slowly. Next week will be better!
