Menu 18/08/13 - 24/08/13

I've tried to look at what we've already got available before buying too much food this week. I hope to have some of the frozen vegetables and tinned goods left for next week. I'm also continuing to eat fruit and yoghurt for breakfast, but I do also have organic (gluten free) cornflakes in case I do want something different. I'm trying to balance out the amount we spend on food along with eating a varied diet and trying new things. I am still working on bringing the costs of our food down, so hopefully this will continue to decline as I get better with the food budgeting!

We've had guests this weekend and we were given some home grown tomatoes and courgettes, so I've tried to incorporate these into the meal planning.
