Eat & Drink for £1 a day - 28 Day Challenge - Day 6

After sleeping in and then reading my book in bed for a while, I finally got up in the early afternoon. Having had such a relaxing morning I wasn't really hungry, so I decided to just have a mug of hot bouillon at that point, and do the eating later. The rest of the day was spent reading and playing with my kittens, and before I knew it it was early evening.

I've felt that the last few days' food has been quite bland-looking, so I tried to make it look a bit more exciting today. It still contains my few staple ingredients, but at least I've managed to make it look a little bit more inviting than before.

I used 1 potato, 2 broccoli florets, 5 bits of carrots, and a tablespoon of boiled yellow peas. There's also a squirt of tomato purée mixed with a little water, which the broccoli rest on. The potato was sliced julienne style and baked in the oven to make it a bit different from previous days. The tips got a little brown, but were perfectly edible. What the whole thing could have done with was some gravy, but alas that was not to be had today.
