So its Live below the Line Hump day! Its been very sunny and you know what…… today has been by far the easiest day. Not sure why? Maybe our stomachs have become trained, maybe it’s the fact that tonight we had a roast pheasant dinner.
So the morning started with toast all round. Lizzie also had half a ‘narna’ before we dashed out (to sing songs about food) at sing and sign classes! Home, a few jobs, skype meeting with the wonderful Aunty Leah. Now Aunty Leah said that she was expecting a sad Becksie as the blog over the last few days has been very thoughtful and was surprised to find Becksie in good spirits. More inventive cookery has taken place today. We had lentil and cauliflower cheese soup with a slice of bread for lunch (Ian had leftover from last night’s dinner).
Snacks were our sort of cakes sort of muffins we made yesterday from butternut squash and our Satsuma peel marmalade.
Dinner was a roast pheasant with some cheese sauce, well hot milk, half a baby stock cube and about 7 grams of cheese – it tasted nice though. For pudding pavlova with a cold weak custardette (not quite a custard) and stewed apple.
Becksie and Ian also have supper to look forward to……. Pheasant pate with cheese and crackers! We are doing ok! And……. Becksie wonders why for years they have been buying water biscuit crackers – they are BEYOND easy to make and EXTREMELY cheap! This is the recipe from our lovely wartime cookery book (we dramatically reduced the amount we made but thought we’d share the whole recipe).
Today’s total spend (drum roll please) a rather cool £2.28
