or How To Feed Yourself For £1 A Day

Veg, fish, steps, shopping and a demo

Freeze Dried I’ve been enjoying many different ways of using the dried vegetables and fruit. I’ve bought some onion powder, which has a pretty intense flavour, and I’m enjoying the idea of getting to grips with that, and topped up supplies of... read more

Freeze dried fruit and vegetables. Tasty? Economical? Desirable?

I have been on a journey that began with Google and ended with kitchen experiments, and you know how much I love those! I have been making mueslis and granolas for a while now and one day a few weeks ago, I took a fancy to adding some of those dried raspberries you... read more

Rubber Chicken (7) Fritters 47p a portion

Ages ago now, I started a Rubber Chicken feature, conjuring a total of 28 portions from 1 x £4.99 chicken. These fritters are part of that and are the penultimate recipe, still one more to go! Pick all the meat from the chicken carcass, then put it in a pan with some... read more

Leftovers for lunch

We had a guest last night and had a roast chicken.  I picked all the rest of the meat off this morning and the carcass is simmering as we speak. I did some roast cauliflower and carrots to go with the chicken. The veg were drizzled with oil and sprinkled with tandoori... read more

In the garden

Not much to report going on here. Just all the usual stuff. Actually got out in the garden this afternoon. It flipping needs it. It’s got to the stage now where I go out to do some tidying up, get overwhelmed by the sheer hugeness of the task, don’t know... read more

A number of books

Went to U3A book group yesterday. I sort of enjoyed the book we read, but it was a bit of a ghost story and I’m not too keen on those. I did, however, buy a new science fantasy book in Waterstones when we were in Newcastle and am enjoying it hugely. It’s a... read more

Tomato flavoured sparkling water rolls

Made the carrot soup for Mike’s lunch today (I’m back on the diet and had something different), and some tomato flavoured rolls to go with it using the sparkling water loaf recipe from a few days ago. This time I used the same ingredients as for the... read more

Back to reality

We’re back from our break today and back to the real world. Back to the gym tomorrow too, and it will be interesting seeing what’s happened weight wise over the last week. I’m actually looking forward to getting back to the rhythm of gym and diet and... read more

Away for a few days

We’re away for a few days, well, a week in fact. First stop was my Mums on Saturday for her 89th birthday. She’s doing really well (hello Mum – waves), and lives with my sister in a little village near Northampton. Then Sunday we drove 20 or so miles... read more

Lentil flour and the simplest bread I’ve ever made

I was looking round the Internet last week, as you do, and came across lentil flour. What’s that, thought I, sounds intriguing. I started off with lentil flour and ended up with a loaf made with fizzy water! What I hear you say? That’s what I thought too.... read more
