Before i found out i was pregnant, me and my partner was saving for our wedding in April next year. As my partner is going into the army, we need to be married for family housing so we can both stay together.
Now with saving for the wedding as well as a new addition, we are trying to cut back on our spending. We have started buying cheaper makes of food ect but i feel like we are still spending more then we should.
Does anyone know any budget meals for two adults and a growing bean?
Cauliflower cheese,if you but frozen cauliflower and packet cheese sauce,have it with a Jacket spud
Jacket spud,beans,sausages(fave meal) lol
Pasta,tuna,sweetcorn and mayo
Soz thats all i can think of hunni.
Two tins of tuna (value is fine and only around 45p a tin)
Peas and or sweetcorn
White sauce (home made with milk and cornflour or a cheapy packet)
Mashed potato (nice with some sweet potato in aswell)
Put tuna in a casserole dish, top with peas/sweecorn then white sauce then mash then bake in oven for around 45 mins, a sprinkle of cheese on top is nice too
Spaghetti with tomato sauce
Tin value chopped tomatoes
One onion chopped finely
Veg/chicken stock cube
Value mixed dried herbs
Garlic - fresh, minced or dry powder doesn't matter!
Cook all ingredients till onions are soft
Serve with Spaghetti (or any pasta) and grated cheese or parmesan on top
You can also chuck in any leftover bits of ham, bacon etc... and I sometimes put olives or capers in if i have any in the fridge
Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6). Place the peppers and garlic on a baking tray, sprinkle with oregano and 1tbsp olive oil. Roast for 30-35 mins until the pepper skins are blistered. Place the hot peppers in a plastic bag. When cold, peel and chop the flesh, discarding the seeds.
Heat 1tbsp olive oil in a large pan and fry the onion for 10 mins until softened. Chop the tomatoes, discarding the seeds and add to the pan with the peppers, stock, sugar and a few basil leaves. Squeeze the soft cooked garlic from the cloves and add to the pan. Simmer for 30 mins.
Slice the ciabatta into four and brush with the remaining olive oil. Chop the basil (keeping a few leaves for garnish) and sprinkle over the bread. Season and lightly grill. Whizz the soup in a food processor then reheat. Garnish with basil leaves and black pepper and serve with the toasts.
