Well, we are on Day 5 of the $21 challenge. We are doing well. I can’t say we used heaps of things from the pantry that were random items, but we have used some. Last night it was so cold here that I sacrificed some of the milk to make some Semolina custard. It was lovely warm comforting food! Of course the price for that indulgence is that we only have 1 litre of milk to last today and 2 more days.
Here’s pics of some of the awesome veges I’ve used from our garden…
Rainbow Silverbeet (chard)
Leeks, (these are technically baby leeks as they should be in the ground a bit longer, but I’m stoked with how big they were)
The chooks have been laying surprisingly well in the last 2 days of cold weather, 4 eggs yesterday, 5 the day before. hopefully that will continue. I know they will be pleased to get out in the sunshine this morning.
This is whats left of yesterdays snow…
This is the eastern view, we don’t usually get snow here, maybe only once every couple of years.
West… lots of snow on the Tararua ranges.
This is Mt Dick, just a couple of kilometres from our place.
Despite the cold I actually got a small amount of sewing done yesterday, so I’ll come back with pics of that later.
