Have been having alot of vegetables and salads.
Haven't been doing any baking as we are still making do with xmas cake and xmas pudding.
They should last us for another week or two.
One weeks sugar ration has lasted us two weeks and we have only used half of it.
Likewise with the tea, I've had to cut down on my pots of tea as I don't have enough milk to
have all the cups that I would like. I have also been watering down my milk to make it last longer.
Salem has been enjoying his milk ration. The amount is more than what he used to have pre-ration time.
We do use up all our butter ration, this was something we didn't really eat before. Margerine doesn't get all used up though.
Our one week ration of cooking fat hadn't been touched until yesterday, I used some to fry up some lovely fish that Salem worked for on Saturday.
He worked at the fishmongers at the market in the morning and we got some lovely trevally. This is a fish that years ago people would turn up their noses at and would only use as bait. I told my mother about our lovely fish and she didn't have anything nice to say about it, saying it was just a bait fish and oily. I don't think she has ever eaten it before.
We made fish fingers with it, cutting it into strips and them Salem crumbed it. It is a lovely firm fish and was absolutely delicious. Even my other son "Grumpy Teenager" loved it.
We had the fish with lots of fresh salad.
During the last week we have been having toast for breakfast with either jam or vegemite.
Having the Oslo Meal most lunches.
Having baked potatoes with a bit of cheese, relish and more salad.
I have also made fish chowder using a tin of smoked fish from our monthly points.
Sprinkle with plenty of fresh chopped parsley before serving.
If you don't have fresh parsley, use 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of dried added with the vegetables.
It's a very interesting read. I'll tell you about that later.
