    Last night i made my girls and i mince with mashed potato and veg

    500g mince which was $2.54
    continental mild mince curry mix $1 something found it in the cupboard.
    Potatoes about 4-6 medium size $1.58
    Mixed veg $2.60 for 500g only need about 2 cupfulls or so

    Brown the mince and add the curry mix and water
    peel & boil potatoes until they are soft enough to mash
    Boil veg until cooked.

    Serve up my kids love some sauce (and so do i) with it its an extremly mild mix has no heat at all.

    What about...

    Tomato and Sausage Risotto...

    6 sausages
    2 cups aborio rice
    1 tin diced or crushed tomatoes
    1 brown onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    2 cups chicken stock made with stock powder
    1 cup frozen peas
    2 tbsp oil

    Heat 1 tspn in fry pan. Fry sausages in pan. Chop into inch-long pieces when cooked.

    Heat 1 tbsp oil in saucepan. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for a few mins. Add rice. Mix for 1 min. Add tomatoes and 1/4 cup of stock. Once the stock has been soaked up by the rice, add another 1/4. Repeat until all stock is gone and rice is cooked. Add peas with last bit of stock. Season with salt and pepper.

    Serve (serves about 6 I'd say).

    A good one I have found is a quick and easy "Samosa"

    1 can of baked beans
    Mixed vegies (frozen ones are great!)
    1 Chopped onion.
    1/2 teaspoon of curry powder (or to taste)

    Mix all ingredients togther and place on one sheet of puff pastry, leaving a 2cm border on all sides.

    Place another sheet of puff pastry on top and join together, pressing down with a fork.

    Lightly pierce the pastry to prevent is bursting open whilst cooking and lightly brush with a beaten egg.

    Cook at 220 degrees until golden and brown (roughly 20-25 mins in a fan forced oven)

    This dish feeds 4 and you can serve it up with mash potato, it's actually really filling and gives your daily serve of vegies.

    Total cost is around $4-5 using homebrand pastry.
