Total cost for tonight's tea
Dylans Bolognese- £0.00
Fish cakes- 9p for the bread rolls (pack of 6 costing 18p a pack, we used 3)
1/2 tin of makeral, bought on a 2 for £1 offer so 25p
I've costed the mash as free as I really can't remember how much I paid for the huge sack of potatoes and it used only 1 maybe 2 as was left over from the other day. Served with left over veg- the cabbage was home grown.
My fish burgers. Nothing fancy literally just tinned mackerel squashed together with leftover mash. Lightly fried then in a bread roll with a little mayo. Delicious and simple.
So dinner for 3 of us cost just 34p! even if I factored in the cost of the potatoes it would be well under 50p, that is for all 3 of us to eat not 50p each.
I am very lucky with my mother in law she often saves food she knows I will eat to give us 'ready-meals'. Se is a home cook too so I know her food is good and nutritious.
After dinner Stephanie and I did this;
Yep, we played a board game in the garden. I'm sure this was more meaningful for her than sitting in a fast food restaurant anyway. A lovely relaxing end to our day.
I need to do the pack up for tomorrow, stocks are running low so nothing exciting cheese sandwiches all round with fruit/salad as tastes prefer. Maybe a couple of biscuits from the cupboard stores. Then I will continue with my knitting for a little while before bed.
