We all need a hobby. Cooking? No sir, cooking is life. My personal interest has been World War Two, more specifically Homefront in the UK, for quite a long time now. I have more than one book on the subject.
I have been feeling overwhelmed by food lately. There has been an abundance of it, what with visiting family and several meals out. My waist line and my purse strings have suffered because of this. My plan of action has been to introduce a certain amount of restriction when it comes to my food. What better way to do this than with a ration plan.
Please note, this is not an authentic re-enactment of the 1940s. This is an experiment in money saving that is inspired by the information gathered in my many textbooks. These are my rations for the week. Instead of lard, I have 4tbsp of sunflower oil. I have a store cupboard filled to the brim so I won’t have to trial a points system just yet. We’ll see. The next week is a given, any more than that will be decided if certain goals are met. I would love to hear your thoughts on my historical challenge.
