I love a family gathering. We have all of Mr Shoestring’s lot coming over on bank holiday Monday so we are hoping for good weather. So how to entertain without breaking the bank?
I have decided to keep it simple but plentiful. I am going to make a vatful of chilli and rice, macaroni cheese with leeks and bacon, a big green salad and some bread. Someone is bringing a lemon cheesecake and I will also do a big bread pudding and custard. I will get the wine and soft drinks from Aldi tonight and hopefully they will bring whatever they want to drink too. Not that glamorous but tasty and filling!
It’s a shame the hall isn’t quite finished. I am planning to order the carpet next week though so we are getting there.
What are your cheap recipes for entertaining?
