I think that, like most non-vegetarians, I plan most meals around a portion of meat or a substitute (fish, generally, but sometimes I do make vegetarian options).
For this week’s meals, I’ve purchased:
- Sea bass (3 whole fish)
- Prawns (pre-cooked)
- Lean beef mince (I’ve frozen the 2.5kg pack in 10 equal portions)
In addition, I’ve purchased the following vegetables:
- Baby spinach
- Sweet potatoes
Finally, I purchased a supply of fruit for snack and dessert purposes:
The season is very short here so I try to make the most of it. I have assorted grains, pulses, and beans in my larder already; and some good quality oils and vinegars. I also have a well stocked spice rack.
Total cost of this week’s shop was £103. I’m hoping that out of that, I will get two weeks worth of meals.
