    Speaking of chicken thighs and drumsticks, I came across this recipe in a magazine and my kids love it:

    Mix maple syrup, whole grain mustard, lemon, and garlic in a bowl. Coat chicken seasoned with salt and pepper with mixture, then coat chicken in seasoned breadcrumbs. Bake on a rack at 170 for 45 minutes, or until juices run clear.

    7 layer casserole

    Layer in a casserole dish in the the following order (potatoes on bottom)
    - 3-4 potatoes, sliced
    - 1 onion, sliced
    - 2 carrots, sliced
    - 1-2 sticks celery, sliced
    - 1/4 cup raw rice
    - 200g frozen peas
    - 1 tin condensed tomato soup mixed with 1 tin water
    - 8 sausages (I boil, skin and slice them)

    Bake covered for 1 1/2 hours at 180 degrees, add grated cheese on top for last half hour.

    So yummy and there's always leftovers.

    I cook similar but add cooked macaroni to the mince mixture then grate some cheese over it and bake in the oven for a bit.

    Default Budget recipes?

    Risotto is my face cheap meal.

    1 cup a aborio rice
    1 onion
    5 short cut rashers bacon
    2 cups mushrooms (or as many as little as you want)
    1 litre chicken stock (I use massel salt reduced cubes as its cheap and goes far)

    Make the stock with boiling water first
    Fry off onion, add bacon fry
    Add rice, stir until changed color
    Add stock one cup at a time and stir til dissolved, reserve the last cup
    Add mushrooms, stir and add last cup of stock
    (I normally check its cooked enough, sometimes it needs some more stock

    You can add a dash of cream and some parmesan but i find it isn't necessary if trying to keep the cost (and fat) down.

    Whole family love it
    So yummy

    Spanish chicken


    4 x chicken thigh fillets
    2 x can diced tomatoes
    lots of mushrooms
    lots of red capsicum
    1 x onion diced
    1/2 jar spanish olives
    2 teas crushed garlic
    2 tbs worcestershire sauce
    1/2 tsp tabasco sauce,
    1 tsp piri piri seasoning
    salt and pepper

    Chuck it all in a big saucepan and bring to the boil (you may need to add a little bit more water later on).... then simmer for at least 2 hours.
    You can make it more or less spicy if you like - i skip the tabasco sauce personally as its spicy without it

    My very broke dinner is mash potato sweet potato cheese and corn crenels mixed together. And 2 min noodles mixed with mince and home brand mix veg n tomato sauce I made it as baby food for my DS when it was just me and him and I had a bad week. That's all I had left so I made his dinners as that doesn't sound too exciting but it's filling

    I got this recipe from skinnygirltaste

    Spaghetti with Creamy Butternut Leek Parmesan Sauce

    Boil 500g of pumpkins until soft. Blend.
    Use the same water to cook about 250g of spaghetti.

    Meanwhile, sauté a leek and 2 cloves of garlic. Add pureed pumpkin. Season. Use some leftover pasta water to thin out to your liking.

    Stir in 1/4c shaved parmesan and 4 sage leaves.

    Mix in spaghetti.

    Done!
