“Yes, I understand that some people eat more than two sausages, but with enough sides, it’s a very filling meal,” she said.

The mash consisted of potatoes and pumpkin mixed together, while the other vegetables were served steamed.

And the meal was a hit with dozens of home cooks drooling over the colorful plate.

“Add gravy and I’m there,” commented one person in the photos.

While others admitted sausages, mash and vegetables are one of their favorite meals.

“Your colored potatoes look like I used to call pink tatos, also just pumpkins mixed with potatoes so the kids would eat it,” one woman said.

“My son is also Asperger’s, so he does not like some things that touch his sausages,” she added.

“I first try to see what I have in the cupboards and the fridge, add it to the meal plan before I make my shopping list so I know what to buy,” she said.

She also gave an example of her weekly shop and meal plan. On Monday the family had beef and black beans with noodles, on Tuesday they enjoyed tacos and on Wednesday they grilled.

On Thursday they had homemade burgers and french fries, on Friday they ate spaghetti, on Saturday a roast and on Sunday they enjoyed a meal out.

The mother spent only $ 170 on the week’s groceries, which also included four bottles of shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and shower gel, which were for sale.

The meal plan also included breakfast, snacks and hot lunches.
