Quick and Dirty – dinners for the frugal woman in a hurry!

I have managed to stretch this week’s shopping to 11 days this week to make up for the expense of our day in London and lunch out.

Tonight I will do the smallest shop possible in my fave discount supermarket, Aldi, and stretch things even further. I managed to get into town on Saturday so I brought the fruit for the week and some broccoli for £4.50, so that helped.

I have some pork chops lurking in the freezer, so they will be dinner tonight, tomorrow will be veggie curry and rice, Thursday I have some taco shells to use up so will buy mince and make a chilli, Friday will be an easy end of the week tea of omelettes and chips as I have eggs. I am out all day on Saturday so will get chicken thighs and get the girls to make a casserole. I have lots of parsley sauce mixes from Approved Foods so on Sunday it will be fish, probably Aldi’s basa fillets. Monday has to be quick as I rush in then straight out to my yoga class, so we will have quiche and salad.

I am sure I would eat differently and even more cheaply if I had more time as I would do a lot more scratch cooking, but this being the real world I will cheat and use some convenience foods as and when I need to!

What are you eating this week?

    Hi, I love reading your frugal posts and find them really inspiring – thank you! However, I am also a yoga enthusiast and would love to know the best way to train to be a yoga teacher and whether at 44 I am too old to start this kind of training? I attend a fabulous class once a week (when I have the time and money,) but would love to take it further. I find it helps so many areas of my life.

      Definitely not too old!! Are you in the uk? The best training is through the British Wheel of Yoga here, either directly or through their affiliates. Have a look at bwy.org.uk. You need to be with a bwy instructor ti be accepted as a trainee. Go for it! Best thing i ever did
