We couldn’t afford the beans

I have to admit that it hit me pretty hard today. With the $2 Day Challenge happening tomorrow we went shopping this afternoon to see what we will be able to feed our family tomorrow and I realized that this is going to be a struggle, yes we will be feeding our kids, and yes they are not going to starve, but looking at this spread on the table, I can see that this much food is normally what we would consume in one meal. This is truly going to be a learning experience.

Take a look at what we bought with our $2 from the local market here in Ethiopia. We planned on getting some beans as well, but could not afford them.

 

It does not look like enough food to feed six for a day does it?

How about you, are you ready?  Do you know what you are going to be eating tomorrow?

Check back here for some encouragement during the challenge, we are 10 hours ahead and will be finishing up our $2 day just when yours is getting started.  We might just have some tips to help you brave the challenge.  (Or we might be ashamed of our horrible failure… Time will tell)
