Real Frugal Fare

Hello and welcome to another new follower Lucy.

I took these pigs in blankets out of the freezer last night to use for tea tonight.






This pack of veg was bought a few weeks ago and has kept fresh down in the cold shed.

The carrots, parsnip and onion were roasted with some thyme from the greenhouse.



The swede was cooked and mashed.

I made some lovely yorkshire puddings to go with it, a drop of lovely gravy, and there we have it a tasty meal for the three of us for around £1.

Now that's what I call frugal food.

  1. Oh, I love Yorkshire pudding. Yours are so big and fluffy whereas mine tend to flop.

    1. Hi Phil to make 6 puddings, I used 100g plain flour, 2 small eggs, 150ml milk, pinch of salt.
      I put the flour in a bowl with a pinch of salt, mix in the eggs, and then gradually beat in the milk, put a little vegetable oil in a six hole muffin tin and place in the oven until hot then pour in the mix.

  5. You are very frugal, Marlene. A delicious homemade meal for £1! How nice.
    I've never had Yorkshire pudding. Until now I thought it was a dessert. :)

    1. I was well pleased at producing such a low cost meal, when I find some reduced free range eggs I am going to make a batch of Yorkshires for the freezer, it's nice to add a couple of Yorkshire to a meal instead of potatoes for a change.

  10. I love Yorkshires. Next to Roast potatoes and chocolate (never served together!) Yorkshires are tops. I'm not a fan of swede (though I dont mind it mixed with potato) but I love just about any other vegetable. we're still picking leeks from the garden but nearly all gone now.

  11. Your Yorkshire puddings look just like mine that i blogged about on my last but one post , Like i said in that blog its a good tip to heat the oil on the top of the stove in the pans before putting the batter in the tins , I also use skimmed milk which makes them even lighter , Love your blog by the way xxx
