Okay, in the vain of TOTALLY BROKE, I have had the following meals all too recently...
Rice with teriyaki sauce
Plain sandwich with butter and pickles Plain sandwich with butter and canned beetroot slices
Jelly on its own
Scrambled eggs (x2 eggs, splash of milk, salt, pepper, cook, sprinkle dill on top)
Veggie Surprise (Basically whatever vegetables you have, or can get your hands on, I like to do one of everything; potato, sweet potato, zuchinni, carrot, squash, tinned corn kernels, onion, can of corn kernels; cook garlic and onion, add veggies, add a tin of "4 beans", cook till veggies are tender, add jar of spaghetti sauce, simmer for 10 mins; add can of diced tomatos if you like. Section off and freeze containers to be eaten later. Reheat and eat on its own, or cook up some pasta to make it last longer)
Chicken and Sweet Potato casserole (x4 chicken thighs, cut into strips, x2 sweet potatos, x1 onion. Cut up, and thrown into a casserole dish. Cover in whatever cheap maple flavoured syrup you can get your hands on; I use about 1/2 cup to 1 cup, and bake in oven at about... 160' degrees; serve with rice)
Not sure where in Aus you are, but i'm in Brisbane, and there's some american confectinary stores around (the one I go to is in Browns Plains), and they sell the canned pumpkin puree.
I checked the ingredients, and it is LITERALLY straight pumpkin... I did notice that it tasted NOTHING like the sorts of pumpkins we get here... it was almost... blander... but better... which is an odd thing to say,..
In any case, a friend and I made pumpkin pie, and oh god.. oh god... it was so good...
Wherever you are, there should be somewhere that sells american candies, maybe just ask the vendor if they're able to get the stuff.
Cost us about $5 a can and needed just the one to make a good pie...
.... I so want pumpkin pie right now.... ohm.nom.nom.
Ok, so you need white panels for behind the words, to make the panels. Should be the same stuff you've used for the two panel windows (and I hope you've made the sign too yes??)
For the "POLICE PUBLIC CALL BOX" across the top, why not use the iron on letters you can get? From vague memory, they seem to be the same, if not similar enough font that i've seen available at spotlight.
Check out your local craft/ fabric store to see if you can find them. They're an Iron on FELT, so not too thick, but still fabric, as opposed to paint, or vinylish type iron ons
If you're worried about them coming loose later on, you could do a tack stitch here and there to help hold them on (after you iron them on!!!)
