A cheap day’s eating

I was super organised this morning and managed to organise breakfast, lunch and dinner before I left for work at 7.30 this morning. Not that it was complicated: porridge done in the microwave, the rest of the huge batch of soup I made on Sunday for lunch and chicken thighs cooked in the slow cooker in a jar of Chicken Tonight (bought at a bargain price from Approved Foods), for dinner.

imageThe slow cooker is great for nights like these. There is no temptation to grab a takeaway on my way home because I know all I have to do is cook some rice and veg from the freezer and dinner is ready. It is also a cheap day’s eating and helps me stick to my budget.

imageThe soup cost about £2.50 to make and has done 13 meals!

How is your budgeting going as we head towards Christmas?
