$100 challenge 2011: Day 1
Hi, it's been a long time since I revisited my own blog. It's that time of the year again, $100 a month challenge. September was a heavy traveling month for me. Looking at my food storage and the money I have spent, it is only rational for me to have my challenge again this month to balance out the expenditure.
As my first day effort... I cooked two meals, with only remaining stuffs in my refrigerator.
This shall be my only financial support for this month. Excluding the fixed payment each month, this $100 will be for all my electricity, petrol, groceries and foods.
In order to make that possible, I guess I'll have to use my bicycle or walk to work for this month, and shall leave my Black Stallion a good rest, after the 2000 mile long drive few days ago.
My brunch. Leftover tom yam soup made by nomadic meow. I used it to make tom yam spaghetti soup. Delicious!!
Later in the evening... I found some fresh ingredient from my refrigerator, including the fresh basil that I plant, and made myself a good Arabiata spaghetti.
Initially, I wanted to start my no carb meals this month, but it shall be postpone to November since I need those carb to have a cheaper meals option.
Not a bad starting at all for my first day, I consider those two were good and rich meals.
Let see what will be next.
