Lush Living Made Simple

Menu Monday 24th October 2011 - The Lean Times


Oct 24, 2011 Menu Monday , , , , , 4 Comments

This week there is a group of us that are aiming to spend £10 ($16) or less.  The £10 week is the brain child of the lovely Penny Golightly. If you fancy joining in the guidelines are here. This is not a challenge for the faint hearted, you must use your willpower against takaway coffees and fashion magazines.  You must also be productive and not spend your time watching mindless tv.

Monday- Impossibly easy bacon cheeseburger pie with salad – I am going to substitute pancetta for bacon.

Tuesday – We are going out, I have a Groupon for a steak dinner

Wednesday – Spaghetti with pancetta and sauteed cherry tomatoes

Thursday – I am home alone so it will probably be fridge foraging.

Friday – White bean and chorizo stew  – if I am not working I might attempt to make some bread to go with it.

Have a great week and if you want to join the £10 week the more the merrier.  You can find us on Twitter with the hashtag #10week.

    Hey Viviana, this looks like a great menu for the week. I’ve been looking in the fridge, cupboards and freezer too at Golightly Gardens, so let’s see what we can rustle up. Good luck with your challenge!!

    I am glad you like my menu. So far so good on the £10 challenge, it even looks as though I might have a spend free day today. I am sure Golightly Gardens is quite well stocked.

    Er, actually, not as well stocked as I’d hoped. Might have scurvy this time next week from lack of fresh fruit…
