Think, James Brolin, George Clooney and a young Clint Eastwood mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Anyhoo, I am aiming to tighten my grip on the pennies and claw that money back ASAP.
Last nights dinner was a good start.
Pudding, 6 small servings, lovely with a dollop of yogurt and a dusting of cinnamon.
Raspberry and Apple crumble, fruit free from my garden, crumble mix from AF and 2 tsp sugar, cheap as chips, no no no, much cheaper than chips and much healthier.
From the staff shop last night £1.
2 .2 Kilo of beautiful mushrooms.
I love adding mushrooms to dishes they give texture and a deep bottom note of flavour, I just will not pay through the nose for them, £1 for 3 or 4 on a plastic tray, not on your nellie.
I picked a few eating apples today, they will keep for a few weeks but we like them crisp, fresh off the tree.
These would be 50p each on a tray from the shop! £6 instant savings, at least it would be if I was ever foolish enough to pay that.
I think that I have made a good start in reclaiming my cash, I have a frugal meal planned for tonight and will show that tomorrow.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. My productive, money saving garden.
2. The ability to make the most of what ingredients I have to hand.
3. Access to a really good staff shop.
4. A mostly sunny day , just a light shower to lay the dust.
5. An extra shift on Saturday, that will add to my specs fund.
A fairly long post but I have been AWOL a few times recently. I want to thank you all for the supportive comments. I know that i have been a bit of a wuss about my eyes but as I said I admit to being paranoid about them.
Enjoy what is left of your day. TTFN Pam
