Froogs on the Radio
Hello Dear Reader,
I'm always happy to share the frugal word with everyone and love being a guest on Tracy Wilson's radio programme on Radio Cornwall. We were talking about the cost of food today, the need for Foodbanks, frugal food and school packed lunches. You can listen again by clicking HERE and moving the slider onto the last hour. The photo above is taken from a snap from the webcam and I've got my back to the camera.
We've had a massively busy afternoon. Too busy in this heat! Shopping and again, I am aghast at the cost of just some fruit, veg, milk and eggs! We then went to the tip to take a trailer full of garden waste and then onto Trago to buy more wood bark chips to mulch our garden.
It was then home to more 'gardening'. In this case, weeding the end wall of our garden which can be viewed from the street. It's a mess and we've managed half of it tonight before we both retreated to have cooling showers.
You can see my house peeping over the top of the fence. It goes on the market on the first of August; the deadline is looming and we still have so much to do. It would be interesting to hear from anyone who uses Foodbanks or is worried about the extra costs of feeding the family throughout the school six week break. If you'd like to leave me a comment, then I won't publish it if you ask me not to. Feel free to email me if you would like me to run a cookery workshop on basic cooking skills, menu planning, cooking from scratch or bulk cooking. If anyone can get three people together for a workshop (two is too few and four is too many) then I'll run it free of charge. I'll have time in my summer break to make videos that people have asked for on cookery techniques such as making pastry, cheese sauce, quiche and using a bread machine. For now? I'm off for a cold drink and ready to put my feet up and watch the highlights of Chris Froome conquering Mont Ventoux and the 15th stage of the tour! Anyone else loving this tour? (If you remember my bucket list, following the tour in person is one of my dreams)
Love Froogs xxxx
