Man, those meals seems really expensive and yeah the meat is a huge factor.

I've had lentil curry with rice the last 2 nights, all in probably less £1/meal. It was delicious and it satisfied me.

I probably spend more on beer than I do on food.

What do you mean? Beer IS food!

Fair point, I just buy it separately, usually direct from a brewery - speaking of which www.magicrockbr...

I'm sure that I spend more on beer than food but I only drink it at the weekend or on special occasions. But I do have a lock-down G&T which isn't featured in my guesscalations. The duck curry was actually about £3/pp now I think about it (but the last time I had it was £17 in a restaurant and I think I did a fair facsimile). I could have gone down to the lake and spanged a duck over the head, of course, and it would have been cheaper.

I don't really think about what I buy, I was just testing the theory that it's cheaper not to make stuff. I don't feel especially decadent, it's not like I'm gorging on truffles, lobster, and caviar. Some things are best saved until to the weekend.

Our booze budget is trivial. We hardly drink but bought wine as gift for Cleaning Lady and two 500ml bottles of Kopparberg for Christmas.

Hmm, I still have five cases of beer in the porch that doesn't yet fit in the house.

For the record, I don't especially like lobster or truffles, and I hate caviar. Eating a lobster is like a secret cinema version of Starship Troopers.
