I bought filo pastry, which was used in three dishes, which ended up covering six meals: my favourite potato and pea tarts, a vegetable filo parcel (with mushrooms and brussel sprouts) and filo triangles, which were stuffed with spinach and feta or leftover tuna mix from a salad niçoise I'd made earlier in the week. And lentils made their first appearance during the challenge, in a deliciously hearty lentil tomato sauce, served with pasta and cheese.
And I baked banana choc chip muffins.
It helped that I had breakfast out three times during the week. (As I said to a fellow frugalista at the last one, being frugal isn't about depriving yourself so you feel hard done by. It's about being mindful about how you choose to spend your money. And this week I chose to use my spending budget on catching up with friends old and new over breakfast. Twice. The third time I was lucky enough to be shouted).
And speaking of shouted, I was offered free tickets to see the new movie Holding the Man at Palace Electric, so shouted a friend a night out at the movies. It's the second free preview I've been to in as many weeks!
