No I haven’t been ignoring my blog. How can you ignore your baby?
It is just that I have started a new day job 3 weeks ago and it is draining me out. I’m getting back home with barely any energy left and no intent to go back behind the screen again. I work in graphic design and my new job is in books design. Back to the challenge, this is the 3rd recipe and 2 more to go.
Cooking on a budget requires a little more effort. You shall not buy ready-made and frozen food since it is so out of the daily budget, and health wise, home cooking is way better. And tastier.

After deciding upon the dishes for the 5 days at the beginning of the challenge, preparing the ingredients was easy. All I had to do was write down all the required ingredients, circle the ingredients I don’t have at home and walk down the aisles of the supermarket and collect my groceries.
Mike has given me a challenge. The challenge came from 2 necessities: one: we were on a tight budget, two, I needed a motive to give me a good start on the blog and create/make recipes.
The challenge came from our daily needs adapting to the month’s limitations. We’re both on vacation, we both have to depend on ourselves, I have a new food blog that I have create material for, aaaand we’ve spent (some) money in the past days that we had to consider giving this month’s limit a good place and use.
The challenge was, as the title hints, to create meals for 2 persons over 5 days for 40$.
