£1 a day

We're taking the challenge of living below the extreme poverty line, spending just £1 a day, to raise money for charity, but also to experience it and enhance our compassion. People all over the world have less than £1 a day to live on, which has to provide food, shelter and utilities. We have so much provided for us, but we are going to eat for just £1 a day. The challenge doesn't begin until May 2012, but you can read about last years experience here.

The legend of S&P sandwiches...

Tuesday, 3 May 2011

When my dad was a kid, his parents told him that if you made a salt and pepper sandwich and got the combination just right, it tasted like an egg sandwich.

He never did manage to get the ratio correct, so he came to the conclusion that it was impossible. His mum must have made this story up to try and save money on sandwich fillings (they didn't really have a lot).

He was wrong.

Last night I discovered the art of the salt and pepper sandwich. I think the trick is to make it on toast. I'm pretty sure I'm not hungry enough to be imagining this. It definitely tasted like a poached egg.


Unfortunately not as filling as a poached egg. An hour later I couldn't stop thinking about a snack.
