    My fav cheap meal is pasta (you can get a tonne of it cheap at tesco) mixed with creme freche, fried onions, fried mushrooms and cherry tomatos. Or low fat supernoodles mixed with cut up quorn fillets and sweetcorn. Or buying cheap veg thats been reduced due to the 'eat by' date and roast it along with some sausages.

    I make cheesy Mince from the originals cook book
    basically dry fried very lean mince
    add onions & mushrooms when cooked
    and any other vegi's you have lurking
    some beef bovril

    then mix VLF cottage cheese & herbs with 2 egg yolks
    add to the 2 egg white that have been whipped
    and put on top of the mince on a casserole dish

    cook in the oven for 20/30 mins till golden brown
    and serve with vegi's & pots (use your HXb)

    Yummy!

    Have you seen SW's new cookbook, Family Feasts For a Fiver? If you don't go to class, could someone you know who does get a copy for you? It has some lovely stuff in it! Chicken bhuna with cinnamon rice, curried pumpkin and white bean soup, lemon chicken and chickpea tagine, red pepper, spinach and sweet potato tortilla, bbq chicken and pepper fajitas, spicy bean and sausage casserole, salmon fish cakes with tartare sauce to name but a few! Yum Yum!!X

    i made a delicious meal tonight, i have been buying skinless boneless chicken thighs which i think are loads tastier than chicken breast and cheaper too (3 in asda)

    i boiled some veg - potato, leek, carrot, cabbage in knorr stock pot and added some dried egg noodles, added the chicken thighs and voila you have a chicken noodle vegtable soup. put in some herbs, rosemary, thyme, garlic salt just to spice things up. yum!
