Does anyone do the $300 a month food challenge that is on the cheapscapes club website? I have decided to try this month and have spent awhile writing my lists out just hope I can shop around and come in under budget. Meat is always my biggest spender especially chicken breasts.
I think a few sites have it but I'm hoping by shopping around I can achieve it and save myself $300 a month on food.
Out of the cupboard/freezer today I've made: chicken and vegetable soup (enough for dinner and a couple of lunches, plus two meals into the freezer.
Banana bread out of some bananas that were way over ripe and some peanut butter cookies (off the 4 ingredient website).
Feeling pretty stoked I've made all that out of things already in the house!
Well this week didn't go so well. I started well but just didn't keep it going
Starting again this week with pancakes for dh and myself for dinner tonight and we will see what the rest of the week brings.
Other than snags and mash and curried sausages what can you do with sausages?
I have done well this week. I stuck to my plan to use up what I have. Really happy with my savings so far. I still 4 days to go of my fortnight challenge.
Out of the pantry and freezer I have made a potato bake. Chocolate scrolls and Cinnamon scrolls. Some Indian curry thing for dh. Sausage rolls and I cooked up what I thought was popcorn chicken ( it was just on a plastic bag as I took everything out of there boxes when I got my castle hamper at Christmas time to make it all fit.) It turned out to a potato thing.
About to cook chicken (well I hope it's chicken) things to go with the potato bake.
Or wrap them in puff pastry.
Cook and cut and add to a pasta . Extra yummy if you have 1 slice of bacon cut up with it.
Cook and cut them up and pit them in a quiche.
Put them in a risotto with tinned tomato and herbs.

That's awesome anewme! Thank you. Is the sausage roll recipe when you just take gem out of the skin and put it in puff pastry? Or do you add other things?
