    Default Budget recipes?

    Our cheap and easy meal is tuna bake! Chop and fry an onion and capsicum, add drained tin of tuna, make up a packet of chicken noodle soup with half cup milk have cup boiling water, add to tuna mix, add about 2 tbsps flour and milk to make saucy (may need to add a little extra milk if too thick of flour if too runny) then put in baking tray and top with cornflake crumbs and cheese. I also add froz veg to the mix sometimes. Serve with rice or pasta to go further!

    Zucchini slice. We have our own eggs so this meal seriously costs us almost nothing.

    Here's mine (its a weight watchers one too so cheap, delicious AND good for you!):

    Cook ravioli (or any pasta really!)
    Saute onions, 1tsp garlic and 1/2tsp chilli (or more if you want). Add bacon.
    Pour in one tin of diced tomatos, season with basil, salt and pepper.
    Add a dollop fo Philladelphia Cream for Cooking just before serving.

    YUMMMMM!

    Pack of gnocchi
    Butter
    Walnuts
    Sage
    Nutmeg (ground)

    Cook gnocchi in boiling salted water (it's done when it floats, it only takes a tiny bit of time so keep watch!).

    Use a pan, and melt butter over low-med heat until it starts to froth. Add chopped walnuts and nutmeg. Cook/stir for 2-3 mins. Add cooked gnocchi.

    SO yummy... even with minimal ingredients!

    Slowly melt, then

    Lentil soup

    Fry bacon in a big pot. Add diced carrot, celery and potatoes. Cover with stock (I use leftover stock from cooking silverside) and add a few handfuls of brown lentils. Simmer for ages until lentils are cooked then add a few Tbsp each brown sugar and white vinegar.

    Boiled potatoes, frozen spinach cooked with dried garlic and lots of nutmeg and soft boiled eggs. Needs quite a lot of salt.
