Budget Friendly Dishes


This week we're keeping an eye on the budget ... Choosing Nigel Slater recipes that taste great yet won't break the bank.  There are lots of great ways to keep the food budget in check - using lots of budget-friendly ingredients such as rice, beans, lentils, and pasta;  enjoying seasonal, locally grown vegetables;  and of course making good use of those leftovers.  Whichever way you're headed, you'll find Nigel has loads of great ideas for serving up great tasting, thrifty meals.

So get those cookbooks out or look at any of the appropriate online sources, choose any Nigel Slater recipe that you think would make a Budget Friendly Meal, and post your dish by Sunday 15 June.

Please remember to link a thumbnail image below, and leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your post.

Budget-friendly beans for me--creamy and herby with tarragon. Quick, wonderful comfort food! ;-)

TeaLady--yes, it looks like the "1" got left behind. I am fixing it so it reads the 15th.

I finally made a NS dish this week: Chorizo Potatoes, which were twice- baked potatoes with chorizo and cheese (I added diced jalapeno, used queso fresco and Mexican style chorizo).
None of my pictures came out--all of them blurry. So no post again this week. I miss everyone and hope all is well!
