I really enjoy the simplicity of preparing my shopping list according to the menu, it seems to get easier each time. Herewith our meals for the next fortnight:
Bratwurst, potato wedges & beans
Impossible quiche over 2 days
Vegetable Thai curry
Pork with prunes
Chicken & Chickpea curry
Toast x 2 (walking days)!
We never have to think about lunch as it will always be soup, or a sandwich, or crackers and most things for those come out of the general shop.Things to think about after the menu shop are oats for breakfast, tea, coffee, toiletries etc.
We spent £24.98 in Lidl and what we couldn't get there, bought in Morrison's for £18.53. That is a total of £43.51 for 2 weeks, including making a batch of faggots for later use and which are not part of this particular menu! Not too shabby is it?
Herewith the shopping, minus some freezer bags and 3 x 2 litres of milk already put away in the freezer:
There was a guy in front of us who we hoped was buying just his weekly pack-up as it didn't look particularly healthy. It came to nearly £19 and consisted of two French sticks, a tub of ham, a jar of chocolate nut spread, crisps and biscuits. £19 - goodness me, we fed two of us for 3 meals and supper each day for a whole week for £20 - twice!
