Thrifty Thursday 15

DSCF6132

I like chicken and chips, but sometimes I like fish for a change. It is a little expensive, but after having a lot of frugal meals like egg and chips I can have what I want! (more…)

chicken, potato and cabbage

Egg ‘n’ Chips

You can’t get much more frugal than egg ‘n’ chips with veggies of course. Potatoes are a staple food, there is protein in the eggs (we need about 50g a day) and there is lots of vitamins, minerals and fibre in the veggies. It’s a well balanced meal and it looks good and so the kids probably won’t turn there noses up. I used oven chips which isn’t quite as frugal as frying chips from potatoes; but less messy. (more…)

Cover with water, then simmer for an hour then strain. Keep it in the fridge until you want to make soup and then you can pour it over vegetables and simmer for an hour to make veggie soup! I used mixed veggies for my soup and they were carrots, swede, broccoli, cauliflower and some white cabbage. (more…)

It was raining or we would have explored more and maybe found the lake that was around 100 yards away. The bridge goes across the canal and I think it looks good in sepia being Victorian. (more…)
