Well with my first day over I’ve already tried tea with custard powder and porridge with cream cheese and water. I must say that I will be having my porridge without the cream cheese tomorrow morning.
I still had £1.12 left so I bought 26 tea bags for 9p, an extra banana for 10p, a carrot for 7p, celeriac for 56p and a garlic bulb for 30p. So I’m now left with exactly 0p.
For lunch today I had a baked potato with two tablespoons of cream cheese and a third of a can of tuna, not bad but the potato was quite small so I had some left-over porridge from breakfast for a mid-afternoon snack.
Dinner was an interesting one of pasta with a celeriac, garlic and tomato purée sauce. I minced some celeriac and added a clove of garlic with a teaspoon of purée and added half a cup of boiling water. Once the pasta was cooked I added the sauce and simmered for about 5 minutes. Not bad for a first meal… though it was missing a bit of salt and pepper.
What’s been the hardest thing today has been the lack of caffeine as I’ve had a headache all day long. Ah bring on tomorrow!
