Wednesday SNAP Challenge

Breakfast consisted of Weetbix for me with milk and a dash of cream, the girls had a slice of toast with jam and a cold Milo each, I had a cup of tea with milk.  Hubby bought a coffee on his way to work, but this comes out of his spending money for the month - not my food budget so I'm not counting his purchase. (As a side point, Hubby doesn't normally buy coffee but a friend was driving him to work the last 3 days so he bought coffees for them both in return for the transportation).
Lunch - Emily had a lunch order amounting to $4.30, Grain Waves chips and an apple for snack, Sophie had some Grain Waves chips, a Nutella sandwich and some squares of chocolate.  I had leftover taco mix with lettuce for lunch and a couple of squares of chocolate (and another 2 cups of tea with milk). Hubby didn't take lunch again - his work provides crispbreads in the tea room, so the days he doesn't take lunch he has these for lunch.
Dinner was Asian Chicken noodle soup. This consisted of onion, celery, carrot, zucchini, mushroom, chicken stock powder, a small portion of chicken breast meat, soy sauce, ginger, chilli and garlic with rice vermicelli noodles.  This was accompanied by 4 slices of toast with butter.  The original soup recipe that I altered is found here: Taste
Dessert was nothing for the kids, leftover rice pudding for Hubby and a scoop of ice cream for me plus 2 instant coffees with milk and sugar.

* I omitted the cheese from last nights' dinner which has now been added to the tally.
