$21 Challenge 1

No I haven't actually started yet - 24 hours and counting - but after thinking about it, consulting the recipe files (mainly the ones in my head) and ringing Brother G, yes this is definitely do-able!

I did have to decide whether to take advantage of our work policy of providing meals when I am there (free food - and when you are budgeting $21 that is very handy) but have decided that goes against the spirit of the challenge so I will take my own lunch on these days.

Also briefly considered doing a grocery shop today (haven't done my usual stock up for this fortnight) but again, it is against the spirit of the challenge so I am going with what is there.

I was concerned that I wouldn't be eating as many veges as I normally do but have decided for 1 week, it isn't going to have a huge impact on my health. I am also going to see the local fruit and veg shop today to see if I could buy $1 - $1.50 (my fruit and vege budget) of food that isn't as fresh as they normally sell, but obviously still edible, each day.

So that's where I am at - will post recipes and photos each day :-)
