Day three of frugal challenge
I always enjoy this meal of Pasta with a chilli and bacon sauce. For this I used value pasta and tomatoes, onions and value bacon. I would say the only difference in the bacon was the fact the rashers were very thinly sliced. I used half the pack of bacon and have saved half for some soup later on in the week. I didn't use any sundried tomatoes in the sauce but sprinkled on some parmesan which wasn't included in the weeks shop, but it's something I usually have in the fridge. At the end of the challenge I will list any ingredients used which weren't included in the £41 shop.
The one bottle of wine remains unopenend. I love wine especially around meal times, and especially when the sun in shining. So far I have resisted and have found it easier than I thought. I'll try not to open it until I make my cheddar cheese risotto, which may be Friday, then I'll really enjoy and appreciate a glass.
