    Easy slice-

    Tin of corn kernels
    2 carrots.,2 zuchinni grated
    Diced onion
    And any other veges you have leftover -ie diced celery,capsicum,spinach etc
    200g bacon diced
    6 eggs
    1/2 cup of SR flour

    I just make it from heart now,I make a huge batch with a whole carton of eggs,.so I can freeze down leftovers for DH to take to work

    Basic biscuits

    5 cups SR flour
    1 cup sugar
    380g tin condensed milk
    cream butter and sugar,mix in flour and c/milk,bake for 10 mins
    This would cost under $5 and make soooo many biscuits!

    Jam drops
    1 cup softened butter
    1/2 cup sugae
    2 cups PLAIN flour
    Jam of ur choice

    Cream butter and sugar until fluffy,fold in flour.Push hole into biscuit and fill with jam.Bake for 15 mins

    Fruit slice
    380g condensed milk
    375g tinned fruit
    1 cup SR flour
    1 cup coconut
    Bake for 40 mins

    Cheap iceblocks-
    Blend up some watermelon and tinned pineapple in blender.Tip into iceblock trays (which are cheap as at shops!) and freeze

    Or blend 2 cups yoghurt,2 cups frozen fruit (rasp,bluebeeries etc) cup milk and freeze

    Mmmmm... Jam Drops! Thanks, I was planning on baking cookies tomorrow, now I know exactly what.

    As for the basic cookies - well if only *drool* The condensed milk itself would cost us $7 and 5 cups of flour another $7 LOL - (GF, DF) so not so cheap for us hahahaha.

    I know the have so called free range eggs, am fairly sure they have no non rennet cheese or veg mince, but I *think* they may have some vege burgers.

    I make a similar recipe to this its great, I use 5 eggs though and no corn or bacon, we call it 'zuchinni slice' and add garlic, 1 cup grated tasty cheese and sliced tomato on top before baking.

    I use left over puff pastry and make PIZZA SCROLLS for the kids lunch boxes.
    Just spread tomato paste and grated cheese over pastry and roll into a log and slice into 1 cm rounds , place on baking tray and bake.

    You can add other finely chopped vegies like capsicum , sundried tomatoes or bacon if you like.

    You can also make cheese and vegemite scrolls, or Nutella scrolls the same way.

    Cassie do you have a GET FRESH store near you ?
    I found today that they sell 'Baker bobs' bread for 99 cents a loaf and it has no preservatives.

    Aldi does stock free range eggs,think they are around $4.70?
    Also 3l of milk is $3.09 and light is $3.69
    White bread is $1.09 a loaf,multi grain is $1.79,cant remember the number but it doesnt contian that nasty preseritive

    Also anotehr idea is making a casserole in slow cooker,and freeze leftovers.You can wrap it in puff pastry to make a wee parcel,and there is another meal.I do this all the time with leftovers!

    Chicken Pie
    2 sheets puff pastry(more if u want bigger)
    1 chicken breast
    200g bacon
    2 cups of mixed veges
    1 litre chicken stock(i buy in powered in tin and it lasts forever!!for $2)
    60 ml cream

    cook chix and bacon,add veges
    throw in tablespoon of plain flour to thicken.add stock slowly and bring to boil.add in cream and stir.
    throw in dish with pastry(cover top with pastry too,but poke in a few holes with fork to let steam out) and cook for around 40 mins or until crispy and golden!

    you can also double up and freeze leftovers for when you feel lazy.
    Filo is another option-under $3 and will spread over a few meals and healtheir than puff pastry
