Frugal food

This is what the FH and the YFG enjoyed for their supper this evening.  It is a sort of very quick casserole, made with an onion, a chopped pepper, some carrots, a tin of chopped tomatoes, a couple of Tesco own brand mini salami sticks, well chopped up,  and a tin of Highlander's Broth (from AF) with some herby dumplings, courtesy of a quick packet mix from AF which was a Morrison's own brand.  All I had to do was add water and mix it up - very quick and easy.  I served this concoction with some broccoli on the side and they tucked in quite happily.  It was a mixture of using up what was needing to be eaten, and making use of the storecupboard basics.

The EFG and I had some haddock [frozen, from the reduced section of the supermarket], broccoli and carrots.  The stew actually looked and smelled more appetising, but it doesn't fit either of our plans, and we still managed to by frugal by eating cheap but nutritious food.

The meal plan for the week ahead will be considered tomorrow....

other than the salami, it look yummy and filling. Not a fan of salami.

It's Thanksgiving here in Canada, so we're having a full turkey dinner.
