    OLB - I ended up having weet bix for breakfast cos my banana that I'd put in the fridge from the freezer last night went gross. I've always just used frozen bananas in smoothies or healthy ice cream but didn't realise it went horrible when thawed!!

    Lunch - Poached egg with mushroom, thyme tomatoes and baby spinach.

    (My boys had cheese and vegemite spinach wraps)

    Dinner - Sweet potato cottage pie
    (Boys having whole meal pasta with peas, spinach, pinenut and cheese).

    Ive done something pretty similar as I just couldnt be bothered going to the shops on the weekend in my present state. Ive got a bub coming in 2 weeks so I ran through the pantry and freezer and cooked up and froze everything I could think of making for dinners. It started to get a bit repetitive towards the end as for some reason I was hoarding mince in my freezer! But I should have enough meals to last the first few weeks after bub is here which was the point. All I should have to do is cook fresh veg or pasta or rice which is plentiful in our pantry.

    I also baked my little butt off for dd school lunches as well. I only sent dh to shops as I ran out of eggs, milk and butter. Again she should have enough to last her 2 weeks. All I should have to buy is fresh wraps and fillings for her lunch, fruit and yogurt.

    All up my challenge (I did it before seeing this challenge) was to make sure my family dh, dd, ds can survive my hospital stay as I will be having a c section and also to limit how many extra trips we will need to make to the shops while im recovering so its easier on dh juggling me, dd, ds, 2 dogs, a newborn and his business! Lol.

    Having said that after looking at this thread last night I think what we will need each week will come under $30 per week (going to try for $21) as it should only be what I mentioned above. So now I except this challenge this aswell!

    I will be doing normal shops until bub is born and ill start tge challenge when I get home from hospital. Good luck to everyone!

    Nice work!!! Not only have you used up supplies - you also sound like you'll be very organised as well. It's such a good feeling

    Very good feeling. I was so lazy leading up to the births of the other 2 as I could be. But with a 6 and 5 year old at home and school it changes everything.

    Yeah I already had it sliced up in the freezer from last week. I usually just pop a frozen banana in the food processor for a yummy clean ice cream but thought I'd try have it in my oats.

    I got the container out of the fridge this morning and it was a horrible brown sludge :/ Lesson learnt!!

    I just did a fortnightly shop so next fortnight I'll give it a go but instead try to stick to $100 for the fortnight saving me $200 that I can spend on Christmas presents :-)

    I've been busy in the kitchen this morning

    This was my lunch
    ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1384134543.024230.jpg

    I've prepped dinner so now it just has to cook in the oven ... I managed to get 2&1/2 serves with left over meat part so I'm now cooking up a bit of wholemeal penne pasta for another 2 dinner for me or the boys to chuck in the freezer.

    Dinner - sweet potato cottage pie

    This is my last week of leave so a good time for me to do this

I hate when i do the 'duck to the shops for bread milk bannanas' i come back with $35 worth of stuff!!!
