    Hi all

    I love cooking and do it sooo much with only doing original at the moment! I need to find some convenience foods that fit in with original and who would know better than the miniminers :D

    Someone on here (may have been Jaxmummy, can't remember) told me about the Birdeye simply salmon.....has anyone else got convenience foods they use?

    Thank you in advance xxx

    I just cook up lots of meat and cut it up in cubes and have it cold. I love the chicken and tom & Basil from Tesco

    Hiya Mate!!!

    I always keep a tin of premium ham in the store cuboard for red day emegencies.
    If I am going to the shops and want something quick later, I will buy a rotisserie chicken to snack on
    Crabsticks are good to have in the fridge for when you feel a snack attack coming on!

    Aldi have their "Try it, Taste it, Love it" (or something like that) range. In the frozen section... they do lamb shanks and pork shanks. Some are free, some have a syn value (though some are very low syn). I keep those in the freezer... and they really are VERY nice.

    They're like £3.99-£4.99 each, but there's two in a box, and they are in separate vacuum bags bags, so you can make just one of them if you want.

    Hi all, thanks for all the great suggestions :) I like the sound of the lamb shanks and prawn skewers. I constantly buy fresh fish and meat and need to cut the cost a bit, AND could really do with some simple chuck in the oven solutions, so these are great!

    Angie, I tend to use Morrisons or Asda's mainly :)

    Boursin is a french soft cheese with garlic and herbs - characteristic in that it is 'rolled' (like a swiss roll) with the garlic/herbs rolled around the layers if that makes sense.

    Not strictly original plan, but Asda do beef in gravy (frozen) and it's free on EE and green.
