Fri: Nachos (Tori cooking)
Sat: Homemade hamburgers

Mmmm, interesting week! I bought the damper today from WW, marked down to $1.49, and it must be 30cm across, it is huge!! The chicken Involtini things are thighs wrapped around something and with italian seasonings, they were 99c each, so I bought 5, that will easily do the three of us.
Todays shop cost $49.18 at WW and $17.50 at the fruit and veg shop, total $66.68. So still a bit left over. Didn't get any catalogues, so would still like to buy a few specials to put in freezer/pantry.
I have worked out tonights meal cost me:
Pumpkin - free
onion - free
2 x garlic cloves - .50c
chicken stock powder - .10c
pinch of sugar - .05c
sprinkle of nutmeg - .05c
1/8 cup milk - .05c
damper - $1.49
butter - .20c total $2.44 serves three - Impressive!!
Imagine if we ate that for a whole week :) Actually I probably could, especially if I saved heaps of money :)
Breakfasts for the week are porridge, toast and/or eggs, and weetbix. Tomorrow night I will cook up some tomatoes and onions for me to have on toast a couple of mornings.
Lunches for me are whatever is leftover, or I will take some tuna and crackers or bread. I always take a couple of bits of fruit. Brody helps himself during the day, and Tori is fed at daycare. Once she is back at school, I will need to plan lunches a bit more.
If I had the kitchen in, I would do more baking stuff, and different meals. At the moment I am picking easy cooking meals really.
Just because every post needs a photo, this is a bowl of cherry tomatoes I picked:
