    My challenge got a little easier last night as we went to mil for dinner. Does anyone know if banana cake freezes ok? Our neighbours have given us loads of bananas so going to make some banana cakes today.

    Yum. We are having hamburgers tonight with a couple of rissoles I found in the freezer and mum brought some bread rolls over as she works at a bakery so whatever doesn't sell at the end of the day she gets to take home. And some bacon and our own chickens eggs. Then whatever salads I have in the fridge I love trying to be creative at least we are eating meals we don't usually make. Tomorrow night we will have tacos to use up the rest of the salad before it all goes yuck

    I have $40 to last Tuesday week.. that's 10 dinners and 6 lunches that we are all home for (but ds needs lunch every day). $18 of that is for formula!... and I haven't done a proper shop for a fortnight. Luckily we are reasonably well stocked!
    My stocktake:
    FREEZER
    Steak x2
    Chicken breast x2
    Mince x3
    Sausages (4)
    Hot dog sausages (4)
    Pita breads
    Frozen mixed veg
    Frozen chips (1/4 pkt)
    Loaf bread (for toast)

    FRIDGE
    Butter
    Milk
    Bacon
    Chicken & Garlic Ravioli (1/2 pack)
    Cheese
    Eggs
    DS yoghurt
    Garlic Bread
    Cream
    Curry paste
    Baby spinach
    Apples
    Carrots
    Capsicum
    Apples & pears to be cooked for bub

    PANTRY
    Onions
    4 Potatoes
    Lasagne sheets
    Pasta (afew packets)
    BBQ Marinade
    Tomato paste
    2 min noodles
    Rice
    Tin tomatoes x2
    Coconut milk
    Cereal
    Rice crackers, jatz, dried fruit, 1/4 box shapes
    Baking stuff

    Breakfast - cereal, toast, eggs, pancakes

    Lunches - sausages in bread, pita pizzas, sandwiches, 2 min noodles, eggs, bacon

    My dinner plan -
    1. Vegetable curry / steak for dh
    2. Chicken ravioli with home made cream sauce and steam veg
    3. Chicken salad wraps
    4. Lasagne
    5. BBQ steak with roast veg for dh & ds (just roast veg for me)
    6. Cottage pie with garlic bread
    7. Hot dogs with oven chips - treat for the boys!
    8. Home made chicken schnitzels with steam veg & mash
    9. Left over lasagne
    10. Throw together / left overs

    Shopping list:
    Potatoes, 1 tomato, small handful beans (only if cheap), bananas, jar pasta sauce, hot dog rolls, salsa.

    I am hoping that dh gets some decent tips at work this weekend so we can do a fresh food (fruit, bread, milk) top up later in the week. He normally gets anywhere between $10 & $50.

    We certainly arent going to starve! Just a matter of using up what we have.

    Yeah I wrote meals too. Made it so much easier!! I did end up being invited to lunch one day so I went ... But apart from that I've managed to stock to just over $16 spent for the week.
