Mums lunch today was lunchiliscious - she had made some fresh carrot and corriander soup at the beginning of the week, and took it to work to eat for the rest of the week. Some nice grainy bread, and an orange was all she needed to make her tummy full. Dinner for her was some Thai green curry and rice, and for me - a fancy feast.
Mum is trying to make her own lunches every day for work, as eating at one of the two cafes are two expensive for her. She finds that the easiest thing is to plan for a weeks lunches by having the same thing each day of the week. So this week is soup, last week was bagels, pate and capsicum. Her soup used $3 worth of ingredients and another $3 for the bread, so it feels kind of thrifty.
