A week on WW2 rations – day 2

Menu plan

My lunch

Dinner

  • smoked salmon, potato and mushroom pasty for T, mixed veg pasty for me with oven chipsĀ  for both of us salad and beetroot for me

I’m feeling the sugar overload and a lack of protein. Have arranged to trade my sweet ration for a couple of eggs with the neighbours. None of the recipes I can find make much use of pulses which would be my usual protein boost in times of no money.
