As we finish our third day I feel slightly panicky about the next few days – packets are beginning to empty.
Today for breakfast we had cornflakes and milk (watered down for me and hubby to make the bottle last longer for the kids). Lunch was a boiled egg and toast and dinner was rice-sotto (risotto make with long grain rice and frozen vegetables). The risotto was bland as hell and I’m sick of the same frozen veg mix so I had to really force it down. We also had a few potato wedges between us, which were nice but really dry without anything to dip them in. Feeling very miserable after made me realise how much happiness and enjoyment I get from food – I completely take for granted the feeling of contentment I get at the end of a filling, tasty meal.
Snack for the day was one lousy custard cream biscuit.
I am dreading tomorrow as we have round 2 of crap risotto for lunch (hopefully I can add a bit of cheese and fry it in a tiny bit of butter to spruce it up) and juts omelette and wedges for tea. Really looking forward to a piece of toast and jam in the morning though!
It’s my first day where I am at home with the kids all day rather than being out and about so I think it’s going to be much harder tomorrow to stay away from the cupboards.
Only 2 days to go for me, but remember we can help those really suffering from hunger. If you’d like to donate, you can do so donate here. L x
