Day Ten - Meals


Breakfast - Toast with spread and marmalade

This bread is really thin, I think when I need a replacement I would do better to watch out for a 'yellow stickered bargain' loaf rather than buy another 55p value one.  But saying that, it does the job and the marmalade is really nice, something I would buy again after this Challenge if I haven't any of my own homemade marmalade in stock.


Lunch was a bit different.

 I really fancied some of my yogurt, so that's what I had with one of my bananas.  Usually I have three portions out of one of those big tubs, but this time I read the pack and it said 'contains 4 servings' so I weighed it out into my dish, and you know what ... it was plenty!!   (1)


Tea was the pasty that I posted about making earlier, covered with some more of my 20p gravy ... it's no different to the Bisto I usually buy ... so another definite keeper.  (1)


For a spot of supper when we got back from the cinema we each had one of the little Marmalade Tarts, made from the trimmings of pastry with a cup of coffee.

A nice round up to a tasty ... although low on my 5 a day day.

But with the satisfaction of clearing the fridge of lots of the leftovers from previous meals.

    1. Haha, I was trying to cool it down ... I hate it when all the butter soaks straight into the hot toast 😊

  2. Your bread is the standard loaf slice here in Canada. The only other options are weight watchers bread which is half that thickness or "texas" toast bread which is roughly two slices of your loaf thick.

    1. In this country we used to have thick or thin, then the more useful 'medium' became very popular. This bread is veering more towards the old thin sliced loaves I think.

  3. Round here there's always loads of YS bread, especially wholemeal, at the end of each day. SUch excellent value, especially when one freezes it and gets out just what is needed.

    1. I guess there is in our supermarkets but I just live too far away to be nipping their too often. It's simply luck when I'm in the right place at the right time for me. I might time a doggy walk for supermarket closing time this Sunday :-)
