This past week has, unfortunately, seen multiple trips to the supermarkets. I really try to make a complete and thorough list, to make it though the entire week, without going back to the supermarkets again, but this week as has been abysmal. There were lots of forgotten items and I had to take back the gluten free pasta that hubby had accidentally picked up and exchange it for normal pasta.
And while I was at Coles on Thursday picking up the forgotten bread flour I found some outstanding marked down fresh produce - 1 kg of Royal Blue baby Potatoes for $1.75, 5 x packets of cherry peppers and 1 packet of Jalapeño chillies for a total of $3.75 (they have been pickled in mums pickling vinegar), a bunch of Beetroot for $2.50 and a bunch of English Spinach for $1.00. Some sterling markdowns that have gone into or will be going towards more meals.

What we ate
I have been rather slack in the dinner photo taking department this week, and have cursed myself more often than usual for not taking a photo as I sit down to eat. I will try to redeem myself next week.
|Wednesday-Curried mince with steamed basmati rice and garlic naan bread, greek yoghurt and chutney|
Thursday-was Pizza night, we got 2 pizzas from Dominos using 2 vouchers, total $18.85, and I forgot to take a photo
|Last night (Tuesday) was a Thai Green Vegetable Curry, with steamed Basmati rice, papadums and chutney. The coconut milk split, I think, because of the kaffir lime leaves. It was still super delicious though.|
So, tell me, what were the meals at your place, does a different season effect what you cook?
