My shopping this week

I love Lidl, so was so happy when one opened in the little Devonshire town that i live in. As you know i have been using up as much as i can in the house but got to a point where i needed to go shopping, so this is what i bought;

  • Chestnut mushrooms
  • Fresh Cauliflower/Broccoli
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Red Apple
  • Lemons
  • Potatoes
  • Clementines
  • Bananas
  • 100% fillet fish fingers *to make a quick dinner when time is short!
  • Greek Style Yogurt
  • Fromage Frais *for little rowan to get some calcium
  • Quiche Lorraine *bought to share with my mommy friends!
  • Skimmed Milk
  • Lean Ham
  • Pork Pies *for my husbands lunch
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Houmous
  • Golden Syrup *to make flapjacks for husbands lunch
  • Red Lentils
  • Chicken Stock Cubes
  • Free Range Eggs
  • Asparagus and Leek Risotto
  • Milk Powder *to make bread with in the bread maker
  • Earl Grey Tea *my new favourite drink, bargain at 69p for 25 bags!
  • Salsa
  • Apple Juice
  • Orange squash
  • Orange Juice
  • Nut mix with raisins *to make trail mix for husbands lunchbox
  • chocolate covered peanuts *to make trail mix for husbands lunchbox
  • plain tortilla wraps
  • crisps *for husbands lunch box
  • wholemeal loaf
  • chicken Legs
  • chicken kievs *another quick easy freezer meal!

This came to £41.93, much better than the £60+ we have been spending per week on groceries!!! I also noticed that all the unhealthy things are for my husbands lunch box, he is a painter and decorator so needs plenty of food to keep him going but i am going to try and make his lunches healthier but still full of energy – any suggestions?

You will be seeing a lot of the above items in the meals i make this week, i am planning to not let anything go to waste!

Some of the things i plan to make include;

  • Chicken and Chirizo tray bake
  • Lentil and vegetable curry with flat bread
  • chicken quesadilla
  • chicken chasseur
  • vegetarian chilli and corn bread

Right, I need to write up my post from yesterday and then start cooking!
