Rationing Challenge - Day 5

Coffee wasn't rationed, though it was rarely drunk, and neither were sausages, though they usually had a minimal amount of meat in them and were bulked up with breadcrumbs. It was also possible to go out to eat and have a pretty decent meal, because, "Hotels and restaurants were not obliged to observe rationing rules, or to collect coupons from their customers' ration books." (The Ministry of Food - Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall) And fish and chips became even more popular because potatoes were not only off-ration, but in good suuply, and people were encouraged to eat a great deal of them. So today we made the most of a snack out and chips from the chip shop!
