Low Fat Menu

On a Diet Art Print


Last time I bought for my menu but we made these instead. Only had to dash out for pies and chips I think, was a bit short on olives for the pasta salad but it didn't matter, and I think we got a couple of cans of soup and brussels sprouts to have with the kranskys, it is a standby so I thought of it on the spot. My new shopping day is Thursday 21st.

I bought smoked paprika when I was in Coles on a shopping trip. Nice to see some recipes using it. I have quite a lot of ingredients already, so that is good. Last shopping trip was still cheaper than what I used to spend last year on food, so I was happy.

Swapped: Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup
Tuna, Lemon & Rocket Risotto
Pies & Chips
Chicken & Lentil Soup
Pea & Ham Soup with Kranksys
Tuna, Olive & Pasta Salad
