Gearing Up, Giving Away and Doing Research

 


I am in the process of gearing up for this Challenge, which is now becoming more of a way of living for the future for me rather than just a month-long Challenge.  But I will be doing a month of wartime rationing to kick-start things and sticking quite rigidly to my modern wartime rations and then re-evaluating at the end of the month.


In the meantime, alongside eating my way through modern foods from the store cupboard and donating the modern processed foods that I no longer want to eat via the Olio App I am doing lots of research.

Some might call it reading books and watching Dvd's but I am calling it research.  😁

  1. Of course it is research . . . anyone who might think otherwise is being snarky. I am so looking forward to what you will share on this journey, and what I might learn. 🙂

  2. They are getting harder and harder to find now, I think probably because more and more people are realising that a wartime rationing style of eating and the recipes of that era are fitting in so well with the current economic climate and our need to save both money and fuel. I know a couple of the books that I have are worth quite a bit of money if I were to sell them directly on Ebay or Amazon.

  3. Looking forward to your efforts and still watch 1940s House when I can find it, always something to learn. Best to you.

    1. I really enjoyed sitting down and binge watching all the episodes over two evenings.

  4. So looking forward to your latest venture, it is something I have often thought of doing but haven't got the oomph at the moment to do all the research and planning and being vegan I can rely on you to do the work for me and I can pinch your ideas :) . I do need to be low carb at the moment so I might have to jiggle it a bit, nothing wrong with a little jiggle. This way of eating shows us respect for our food which is sadly lacking in our modern way of eating, fortunately my husband is a meat and two veg man and doesn't mind replacing expensive meat for the odd sausage, spam and corned beef so he will be no problem. Thanking you in anticipation, Chrissie x

    1. Haha ... you are very welcome to pinch all my ideas ... if I have any. ;-)

      Alan loved the Spam fritters that I made him last time we both did the Challenge together.

  5. Gosh I bet you are, they are really increasing in value now as well as more and more people are seeking them out second-hand online.
