food fight

Tough economic times, and a backyard renovation that's escalating in cost every second or so, are making me rethink my shopping budget. In winter it's easy to cook cheap and easy meals - as I do so love slow-cooked cheap cuts. However, in summer I spend most of my time firing up the bbq, and I've yet to work out an alternative to salmon or thick, organic steaks. Stir-fries perhaps? What's your best frugal tip for the food world?


  1. Pastas. Chicken. Chicken is cheapo. I do make a LOT of soups- those are inexpensive to make fresh.

  2. Be strict with the way the plate is divided up. Meat from 6 to 9, salad from 9 to 3, starchy bready potato fun, 3 to 6. Eat slow, let the message that you are full get there before you hair off for seconds. Voila.


Comments make me SO happy. Thank you for taking the time to share the love x
