Carolyn over on The 1940's Experiment blog is doing a ration challenge of a different kind.
I don't know if you visit her blog from my sidebar ... or indeed for fellow bloggers from your own sidebars ... but I thought I would give a shout out to her and all her readers that have decided to join in with her for this World War II rationing month.
She has also done a brilliant free download for anyone that is interested.
Of course you know that if I wasn't doing my own Ration Challenge I would have been the first to sign up for this one, and indeed I might still do it only a month later. While I'll be tucking into rice and flatbreads Carolyn and her readers will be up to their eyes in potatoes and the National Loaf. Sometimes it's good to challenge yourself and learn something in the process.
Her grand total for food for the first week works out at under £12, which is amazing and it does show what you can do with clever shopping, eating seasonal foods ... and rationing.
Thinking back to when me and Alan both lived on WW2 rations for a month a few years ago we both really enjoyed it and felt all the better for not eating junk food and planning out our meals more carefully.
Rationing in it's many forms is on a lot of peoples minds at the moment isn't it.
