It's back to school tomorrow 😭 so today was a food prepping day. I was up very early this morning and was at the recycling centre/tip when it opened. We've done a lot of charity shop runs and tip runs between us over this past week. I went with my DIL to Tesco last night and scored some fab yellow sticker bargains. This was a Tesco Finest honey glazed gammon joint, reduced to £6.24.
I got 3 packs of these healthy sausages. They are 50% pork, 50% butter bean!! I cooked 2 packs and put the other one in the freezer for next month.
They taste rather nice but are definitely healthy as there was no fat at all. They're portioned up and in the freezer already.
I also baked 11 potatoes (that's how many were in the bag!) They weren't reduced but at £1.85 for 11 is great value. I baked everything in the big oven at the same time to save money.
I've also got some of my Lovely Mum's home grown pears poaching in the Crockpot with pear cider, cardamom and cloves. It smells amazing!
I made soup last week and froze it so I'm all set for the week ahead. We're just going to wing it this week meal wise, using up what we all have then sit down next weekend and do some planning. The whole point of us all living together is to save money. Me for my retirement and them for their own house one day.
