$100 challenge 2011: Day 9
Lazy Sunday. Lazy to tag my photos. Shall be an update with more photos.
My dinner for last night. Half grilled fish with tofu dish. Asian. A bit tired of creamy pasta. After that, went for my 10 hr sleep due to headache.
Today, is bargain hunting day.
Look what I've got. All these for only $22.88.
Here are some of the deals: $0.15 per lb cabbage. $0.39 per lb napa cabbage. $1.09 per big pack tomatoes. $0.99 per lb long bean. $0.99 per 8 oz mushroom. $0.49 per lb cauliflower. $0.99 per pack tofu. $2.34 per 26 oz bread. And.... the best part... $0.79 per lb chicken. These will last me 2 weeks. An average less than $2 per day for my foods. ^_^
I decided to cook a big pot of modified Malaysian curry tonight, without the coconut milk. $3 chicken + $1 long bean + $0.30 cabbage + a pack of ready to cook vegetarian curry paste brought by the hubby few months ago. And with little bit of soy sauce added...
I'm surprised how good that it is. I had to go for 2nd round. :P No coconut milk made me less guilty.
And these shall last me for a whole week of lunch = $1 per lunch.
Lunch was something more westernized. Smoked salmon sandwich with tomato and yogurt. And a 1/4 pack of tomato and roasted bell pepper bisque. And a tablespoon of greek yogurt and chopped fresh basil from my little "garden"... Ah... life is good.
And with that big pack of $1 tomatoes... I decided to make them into ready to use tomato puree with some dry basil and a pinch of freshly ground mixed peppers. I shall use them for either pasta, pizza or even as topping for my sandwich.
It's been a long long time since I am bargain hunting like this. I miss this kind of fun. A great satisfaction from this achievement.
$100 challenge afterall, is not really torturing at all if you know where to look for the good price stuffs.
And my saving for today was $10.50.
Day 9 fund: $63.70
