Still £88 later and enough food for another 7 days of meals for six people. I have also restocked the larder with sugars and flours.
Next weeks menu:
- Tomato risotto
- Quick bean and cabbage soup
- Sesame-roasted tofu and root veg bake
- Squash and coconut curry
- Warm winter salad with home made onion bread, followed by chai latte rice pudding
- Bengali butternut squash
- Toad-in-the-hole (youngest daughter's birthday meal request)
My gluten free, vegan bake this week is Coffee and Date slices.
The lady in the till did remark on the fact that I was buying 4 butternut squash!! I had to give her a full run down on all the ways we eat them!
Last weekend I made a large bloomer to go with the soup on Saturday and flavoured it with rosemary. Not gluten free I'm afraid - I had become VERY cross the night before trying to make GF flatbreads. The GF flour just doesn't behave like normal flour!! I gave myself a break and used normal bread flour for my loaf so I knew that my efforts would be successful!
Having said that the GF baking is going well so far. Here is this week's offering - Chocolate and macadamia brownies. Lovely warmed with soy vanilla yoghurt!
