What we bought, spent and ate this week

Wednesday, 26 October 2016

Hello Dear Reader,

I stayed at home over the weekend, getting the house ready for a visit from my darling daughter and her lovely partner, who will be arriving tonight. It was her birthday yesterday and they have come home to celebrate her birthday. I have been busy making and baking special little treats that I know she loves and we will be getting all the family together for a Sunday Lunch to help celebrate this occasion. I love that our daughter is living her own life and doing a great job at it too! But I still miss her, dearly, everyday. But thats all we hope for, isn't, that we have given our children the right tools to help them make a good life for themselves and that they are happy doing it. 

So, this is what we have been up to on the food front-

What we bought

Shopping from ALDI, Woolworths and Coles 

What we spent

Coles-$5.20 + extra later in the week $7.05


What we ate 
Wednesday and Thursday-Our Favourite Pumpkin Soup with fried sage leaves and sour cream with fresh bread and lashings of butter 

Friday-Pan fried Snapper and Pearl Perch with My Big Tossed Salad and Balsamic and Basil Salad Dressing

Saturday-Honey Prawns with Steamed Basmati Rice and English Spinach 

Sunday-Pork Ball and Bok Choy Noodle Broth 

Monday-Tempura Whiting and Honey Prawns with Steamed Basmati Rice and Steamed Broccolini. Lovely Hubby had taken out too many packets of prawns on Saturday so he cooked the rest up on this night, we certainly didn't mind a re-run of Honey Prawns

Tuesday-Salmon Quiche with another Big Tossed Salad

What has been on your family, table this past week?
