Veg for the week SORTED (plus i spy some great soup
ingrediants for lunch time with me and MrC)
Our mince this week comes from the local butcher (500g) which turns out to be about 60p more expensive than the cheapest Aldi brand… HOWEVER… the quality of butcher meat over store bought meat is obvious (so little fat, and a beautiful colour) so we’re BUTCHERS minced beef (minced steak actually) converts.
Total cost for meal: £3 for mince + pastry making bits we already have + £1 for veg (if that = £4 Cost per head: Makes 15 pasties = 26p per pasty (prob consume about 9 at dinner so 6 for future snacks)
|[sigh] the eyes say YES but the BMI says NO!|
Is brownies night and no I don’t mean the chocolate kind… because Miss K has Brownies at 6:15 (1hr) it interrupts diner…. so dinner tends to be something simple. Before sausages, pizza or fish fingers its now going to be either pre made for the kids when they step in the door or toasties.
Pork and beans night… yummy… we have a couple of weeks worth of pork steaks in our freezer which we bought from the butcher last week. So between that and our mince store that’s us sorted meat wise. All of us are looking forward to some good old pork and beans. Tin wise we only allow ourselves 4 tins per week (4 tins between us NOT each). Last week it was 4 beans tins… this week its going to be 3 beans and 1 corned beef.
Cost for entire meal: £3 for pork + 2 tins of beans 60p (30px2) = £3.60
Cost per head = 72p if we eat all of it between us …. less if there are leftovers… which there wont be [grins]
Something fishy… havent decided yet but it involves some cod/ haddock and some veg…. Depending on how the day goes and how much time we have dinner could be anything from, fish and home made chips (plus veg), fish cakes, fish fingers etc.
Corned beef hash … the kids havent really taken to this in the past… so this is going to be interesting.
Sunday dinner at Mams or some HUGE chicken legs from deep inside our freezer (+loads of veg) ((we call it the black market chicken…lol))
Something fishy – same as friday………. we’ll see how we’re feeling, fingers or cakes? hmmmm
