Welcome to my new followers, Catherine, Jean by the stream and May Ward.
A slightly colder night last night at -4.5 Celsius, could certainly feel and see the difference inside with a little more condensation on some windows.
Well, it is almost time to do the monthly shop. I have managed to make most of our meals from what we had in the freezer but the weekly top up of fresh food has meant our total extra spend for this month was around £50 rather than the £20 I had hoped for.
On the positive side though, I have managed to keep making extra meals for the freezer so come March, we reckon we should be able to do a similar thing if I continue to make meals to freeze during February.
It really doesn't take much to make these extra meals, just a slight change in portion size. For example, a few years ago, we may have had goulash with lots of noodles and the amount I made would only have done two meals. This time, I served it with potatoes and vegetables so was able to stretch it to three meals etc.
