A week on WW2 Rations – Day 6

Breakfast

  • cornflakes and a small spoonful of sugar although there is loads of it left
  • juice

Lunch

  • Toasted sandwiches, 2 x smoked salmon (bacon substitute) and mushroom for T
  • 1 smoked salmon and mushroom for me and a bowl of vegi soup

Dinner thoughts at 2pm

something potato based, possibly pasties (again) We have most of my ration of cheese left, some fish, 2 vegi burgers, possibly mashed potato so I can save some potato for potato pastry tomorrow. We also have 2 eggs still and a mountain of sugar.

Snack

  • Jam biscuits

Dinner

  • Pizza with potato bread base, smoked salmon, mushroom and the rest of the cheese ration
  • Steamed treacle pudding and custard

That is all the fat ration gone, and my son ate the rest of his sweets today. This is what is left:

  • enough smoked salmon for one sandwich,
  • one slice of processed cheese (my son prefers it to real cheese)
  • loads of sugar
  • 2 vegi burgers
  • one egg

The chelsea buns I have ditched (not very thrifty I know but they hardened up!)

One more day to go. If I had more butter it would be a lot easier!
