The weekend is here – 48 hours stretch out in front of me with no specific plans.
Breakfast – cornflakes and milk
Lunch – pasta, vegetables with soft cheese
Tea – beans & cheesy mash potato ‘pie’
Very tired today – that could be due to the previous evening activities – but I admit that the thought of cornflakes was not welcoming as they don’t fill me up.
This is going to be a boring blog day – I really didn’t do much apart from housework, washing and knitting. Normally a day to myself without the pressure of work is welcome but the day dragged as I was just focused on when I could eat next.
One good thing was (due to an inspired tip from my sister) I made ‘crisps’ from my potato peelings. To think I was going to throw them away – but baked in the oven they came out crispy and were a welcome snack during Saturday evening .
Norwich foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust and follows their model of providing 3 days of nutritionally balanced food in each of the parcels given out. Because of this, the mixture of items is really important and so when we ask for certain foods, it’s to ensure we have a good stock of ALL required items. Baked beans, pasta and cereal are donated the most as they basically cover the main meal staples, but this also means many foodbanks are extremely well stocked with these items. Therefore, things like milk, fruit juice and sponge puddings (all long life of course!) are in shorter supply and are even more gratefully received.
Norwich foodbank currently needs sponge puddings if you’re in a position to donate and if you’re in need yourself, do get in touch with the office on 0103 251733 or via the email firstname.lastname@example.org
