I wish I could say it's because we spent no money, but we spent lots, mainly on gifts. One of the bathroom quotes came through, it was about what we expected, no nasty surprises.
I took in a parcel for my neighbour (the newish one), it was one of those recipe boxes. We had a chat when she came to pick it up, it was her first trial, £15 for two weeks, which is six meals apparently. Turns out they're a vegetarian household so she said she'd let me know how it goes. It would be interesting as a one off so maybe we'll give it a try too.
But until then here's a few things I made this week.
We had a fry up brunch on Saturday
We used up some more of the curry paste I wasn't fond of and made a double portion of chickpea curry, also using the rest of the squash I bought from the market. With some extra spices the paste is fine. We had the rest on Thursday with some left over roast potatoes cooked in some spices.
Two sausages, leftover from the fry up, turned into a very tasty sausage casserole.
It should be a simple weekend this time round, nothing planned other than returning some books to the library, I need to start a spring clean as we're having guests at the end of the month (I hate working up to a deadine), I want to get those cubes painted and hopefully there will be a bit of time in the garden and finish this peasky quilt. Oh, and maybe fit in a bar of chocolate.
