Mealplan and Spending Update 30/09

I didn’t do my usual Sunday cooking yesterday – but luckily I was off work for a local holiday today, so I got it all done in the end.  Actually, I did even more than usual.  Since I’m tired from all the cooking, I’ll tell the story in pictures:

Homemade natural yoghurt with banana and honey (keep your eyes out for the method later on in the week!).
