After completing Day 1 of our grocery challenge with only a $13 spend, Day 2 of our grocery challenge started in a pretty typical fashion, for our family, with an unnamed older teenager discovering that our flour was unusable (halfway through making pancakes) and decided to attempt to substitute flour for a whole heap of oats, and sugar, eggs and organic vanilla extract. Which surprisingly did not equate to pancakes, and was then transferred to a cake tin, where it also failed to become cake, and ended up in a big oaty mess for the bin! So much for reducing food wastage!
Breakfast was oats with sultana's, malt raw syrup and soy milk. Approximately $1 per serving.
Lunch was rice paper rolls, with canned tuna, lettuce and carrots. Approximately 50c per roll, or $7.50 for the family.
We have fruit for snacks, and I am pretty sure that our children have eaten 3.5 kilograms of potatoes between them, in the few hours between breakfast and lunch... they are descendants from the locust family for sure.
Whoever thought of this challenge obviously didn't have our children living with them!
