At last - a menu!

Well - raided all my cupboards and freezers (I have a small one in the kitchen and a huge one in the shed), made up a menu and did an Asda order. I am sooo proud of myself! My Asda order came to £101 (used my Asda credit card to get free delivery and Asda points - this is always paid in full by a direct debit every month so its like using a Switch card but with extras!) I always use Asda on-line - found Tesco to be terrible.

That £101 is for the whole month!!!!!! My big freezer has quite a lot of meat (bought on special offers) in it so this is using it all up. I have made up a menu for dinners for 21 days - although this is not quite a month there are also meals which can be made out of left overs or bits from the freezer(some meals are the same - batch cooking)which hopefully will make it up to the full month...
