Approximate cost 60p
Lunch, veggie soup (3 cloves of garlic, some dried pasta, a carrot, a stick of celery, homemade chicken stock from freezer, homegrown ruby chard, homegrown courgette, homegrown herbs & homegrown spring onion) There is enough for me to have a portion for lunch tomorrow. Total cost 60p.
Approximate cost for us today, 40p
Baked a loaf of very yellow bread (500g bread flour, 350ml water, dash of oil, a tablespoon of turmeric, salt, sourdough starter from fridge). Total cost 35p.
Approximate cost for us today, 15p (photo taken part way through Monday!)
Dinner, stuffed marrow (Homegrown marrow, tin of tomatoes, 3 sticks celery, 3 carrots, 1 onion, 3 cloves garlic, homegrown herbs, dash of homemade spitfire sauce, 250g minced meat & seasoning) Eaten with homegrown salad. We fed 4 people & still have 2 portions left for tomorrow...This was very difficult to cost so I've averaged it at a total cost of about £2.40
The cost for 2 of us to eat this meal was approximately 80p.
Without all the homegrown veggies which we've recently been given by friends & family, the cost would have been much higher.
Costing things was really difficult, I had to estimate amount used, work out how much I'd paid in bulk & do lots of division!
We ate really well but I could not have afforded this if I had to buy the ready prepared versions.
