00Easy Peanut Butter FudgeIn the back Tupperware dish as I can’t find one of the fudge on its own! I have halved the quantities of the original recipe I had as quite frankly unless you were selling it you’d have no teeth left and your kids would be swinging from the curtains. This is extremely sweet and sickly so only for die hard sugar addicts. And please no one tell me how awful it is! I know I’m only posting coz I was asked to.
00Tomato SoupThis slow cooker tomato soup is one of the cheapest and easiest recipes that I make on a regular basis. My kids absolutely adore tomato soup and this is there favourite. 100 times better than any tinned soup you can buy! And this makes enough to easily feed 6 for approximately 60p. I am at the point in my life now my kids are a little older and always hungry later in the evenings. I used to go to bed of a night and get up the next morning to find half the food in the house had been hoovered up by hungry teens! I started batch cooking this recipe by scaling up the ingredients by up to 4 times. You don't need any longer cooking time and it means I can freeze it in portions for the hungry masses to reheat in the microwave. A big bowl of soup with some crusty part baked baguettes seems to fill them up and has been saving me a fortune! Give it a go and let me know how you got on in the comments!
00Slow cooker fudgeI’ve got my step daughter up for Easter and her first request was for this! Slow cooker fudge
00Cream of Chicken SoupThis cream of chicken soup recipe produces a lovely warming soup that is perfect for a winters evening. It is very filling and oh so tasty! You will see from the ingredients list that you need only the smallest amount of chicken and a few other cheap ingredients which makes it perfect for the end of the month when the money is running out but you still have hungry mouths to feed. No one will know how little this cost to make and when served with part baked baguettes to dip no one will be complaining about still being hungry afterwards. I originally came up with some of these recipes as stop gaps for when money was tight which was fine but now they have become staples in our house because they are tasty and the kids love them. Quick, easy, tasty and cheap is my favourite combination of words! There is no need to sacrifice taste when money is tight! A huge pot of this delicious soup will make dinner for us one night with a few portions leftover for lunches later in the week or you can freeze them for another night! Have a go at making this and let us know how you get on in the comments!
