Our spending for March in France went very well, just 84.50€/£67.60 for the whole month but our recent visit to England bumped that right up. We’d only popped into Tesco, Aldi and a couple of other stores for a few bits we can’t get here or are cheaper and spent just under 125€/£100. We didn’t plan on spending that much but a large gammon, lamb shanks, Shreddies, Weetabix, custard, a couple of lumps of cheddar, some hot cross buns and other essentials or is that treats, seemed to find their way into the trolley. But the things we bought will last us for a while and on our next trip we will try to be more restrained.
The parsnips above are the last from the veg patch and needed to be harvested before we could rotavate. These giants are all over 30cm long, apart from the one that’s lost it’s bottom, even though you can’t tell that in the photo. Today I diced them along with our last potimarron and made soup, roasted them with our chicken and blanched some for the freezer. Just half a potimarron to use up so any suggestions apart from soup or roasting would be welcome.
