Fiscal Fast Day Eighteen: Sick for toys

Ohh! Look! I finally have photos of Choku Bai Jo!

From the outside: doesn't look like much but inside...green signs mean organic (you might not know that)all signs have kms on them (except for the far back corner which has stuff like "QLD" and "TAS". I try to buy as little as possible from this corner...)

And who grew them:
Every week there are new things to chose from:Day Eighteen:

Breakfast: Tea. Porridge with sultanas, brown sugar, wheatgerm and milk.

Morning Tea: The last of the rice crackers with tzatsiki

Lunch: Lentil, spinach and coriander soup. Toast with (donated) hummus.

Afternoon tea: Cheese, sundried tomato and parsley scone. Apple.

Dinner: Oven roasted pumpkin, garlic and feta cheese with fettuccine. Self-saucing caramel pudding (recipe courtesy of the latest Madison magazine)

Finished today:
* Milk (will buy more tomorrow)
* Cat food (ditto - or my life won't be worth living)
* Rice crackers (will have to wait)
* Feta cheese (I'd been saving it for the pumpkin)
* Brown sugar (will try to do without it...)

Bought today:
*
Dolls house: $116.84

A doll's house - wow that is breaking the fast in a BIG way. Could it not wait, was it a bargain, where on earth did you find it if you have not been going around the Op Shops, or EBay?

Come on - full confession required - and a picture....
