My apologies for not posting a meal plan for this week, we have been eating though, and according to the plan. I've had a problem with my eyes and computer time has been reduced to almost nothing, and time in genergal just vanished on me.
We'll be eating frugally this week, with Sunday's roast being a freezer meal (remember I explained how I get two or three dinners from the one roast a few weeks ago?). It's easy to prepare, just thaw in the fridge and then reheat while the veggies are cooking.
Then on Monday we're having Bread Fritters. These are a dish Mum used to make for us when I was little and I loved them. I had no idea they were a scrap meal, they taste so good. And they're cheap too. I use bread crusts (ends of the loaves) that I save in the freezer.
Tuesday is French Steak - such a simple dish and a really tasty way to serve cheaper cuts of steak - blade or barbecue. The slow cooking turns the meat into a mouthwatering, tender cut almost indecipherable from a much more expensive piece of steak. And it makes it's own gravy while it cooks - gotta love a dish that saves time.
The rest of the week are all frugal meals: pasta bake, pizza, sausages and haystacks. They're all quick and easy too.
2 to 3 cups of bread crusts
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp dry mustard
oil for frying
Process bread crusts, onion and parsley in a food processor until finely ground. Add eggs, milk, mustard. Process until well blended and pliable. Heat a small amount of oil in a pan. Drop tablespoons of mixture into the hot oil. Cook until golden brown, turn and cook other side.
