Default 7.00 per week - menu ideas

I'm a new member who's just come into alot of financial difficulty as I am a student awaiting bursary payments. NHS bursaries think you can live off fresh air and pay the nursery with smiles.

Anyway, I read the meals for 1.00 thread which was great but unfortunately, I think alot of the ideas are a bit outdated now as they'd cost twice the amount.

I was wondering if it'd be possible to feed two adults for a pound a day for a week, assuming you have no basics in? Any shopping lists/menu ideas would be great.

Yes please.

My husband can get lunch at work, but it's deducted from next months wages which we could really do without as our income is half our outgoings until NHS bursaries pays me.

I got the impression that you MSEs enjoyed a challenge.

Its not impossible but may be slightly repetative, what stores (even herbs etc) do you have at home and what shops are nearby?
2014 in 2014 = 1599.92 - 14025.96 / 13694.07. The Other One: 12042.8111575.59 Wine is like opera. You can enjoy it even if you don't understand it and too much can give you a headache the next day J

Porridge is your best bet for breakfast for the week (most stores sell a bag large enough to make about 2 weeks worth for 2 people for around 80p), made with water. But we'll need the info I asked for to help a little more please.

Some of the recipes from http://www.cheap-family-recipes.org.uk/ (created by MSE members, led by Weezl) may be of use.

As Unixgirluk asks- what (if anything) do you have in already - anything lurking freezer/fridge/cupboards?

I'd also be considering hitting up your local supermarket at peak reduction time (these vary depending on shop/location).

It's much easier to look at this over several weeks than one so here goes....

value spam 67p
value eggs 1.56
value rice 40p
value soft cheese 50p
value pasta x2 60p
2 value pasta sauce 78p

fried spam with mash and mushy peas
egg and chips, chips and mushy peas, chips and spam if you ahve enough left.

I can't believe that you don't have anything at all
Do you have any flour, cooking oil, lard, tea bags or butter?
Porridge is definitely the way to go at 75p for 1kg in Asda
It might be worth a visit to Aldi for cheap fruit and veg and their meat is a great price as well. 15 medium eggs are 1.25 and a cheap source of protein

Breakfasts...... Porridge with a dollop of jam
Porridge 1kg = 75p sp jar mixed fruit jam 29p = 1.04 for a week's breakfasts.

Lunches.......make your own tortillas just plain flour, lard, salt and water

Flour Tortillas
225g plain flour
tsp baking powder
tsp salt into a bowl
50g lard (at room temperature)
150ml warm water

Place the flour and salt into a large bowl, rub in the lard.
Add the water in a steady stream, and combine, until the mixture becomes a stiff but pliable dough.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 5 - 10 minutes until smooth and elastic, leave in the bowl covered with some cling film or a damp tea towel to rest for 20 minutes

Divide the dough into 12 equal sized pieces and roll each piece out to form a 30cm circle. Roll them as thinly as you can. Again keep them covered to prevent them drying out.

Warm a heavy frying pan or griddle ( No oil just a dry pan) and cook each tortilla for 1 minute on each side, until the surface bubbles and has turned a light golden colour.

Wrap the tortillas in a clean tea towel to keep them warm and pliable until you have cooked them all and are ready to use them. Fill as desired. They will keep in an airtight zippy style bag for up to a week , or freeze separated with greaseproof paper or cling film, if I freeze mine I open freeze them first then stack and bag up

Fill with tuna and mayo (tin tuna 59p mayo cheapest 48p) or boiled eggs chopped with mayo, which works out even cheaper

So if you count buying flour and lard basic plain flour 52p for a 1kg bag, Lard is 39p and not as unhealthy as some of the hydrogenated oils and cheap if you are on a budget = 91p for wraps for the week 500g flour usually makes around 12 - 15 wraps and you can use them as a base for pizza with a mozzarella ball 44p and a couple of tbsps of passatta 29p and anything veggie that you have to hand or get some pepperoni slices 79p a pack and they will do 2 pizzas easily or I make a macaroni cheese and just put the slices on top instead of cheese if I don't have any.

500g spaghetti is 24p and 4 instant cheese sauces are 1 in asda

You could get a small onion from the market for about 10p (use half and save the other half for the next day)
A tin of meatballs in tomato sauce and spaghetti will cost approx 12p pasta a pack of spaghetti) tin meatballs 42p total 59p for a main meal

Eggs = Omelette, Fritattas, fried eggs, poached or boiled use to make pancakes just add a jif lemon 20p on offer in asda and a little sugar for a sweet treat or as a change from porridge for breakfasts. 15/2 = 6 eggs each plus 3 extra for batter for pancakes or even a HM cake.

Off to sort a menu plan BBS x

I meant to say that when you make your cakes, make your rolls as well and freeze them , then they will stay fresh for the week.
When your Bursary comes through you should check out the store cupboard thread and build up a buffer, just in case this happens again, it doesn't take long, just a few tins or packets/ frozen every week and you will be surprised how quickly it grows.

Come round to ours and I'll go through the cupboards. I hate the thought of a couple having absolutely nothing in.

Is there a food bank near you at all to help you over the tough initial set-up period?

Pasta is really good with a big knob of butter and lots of S&P. Even better with garlic and olive oil.

If you have cheese, throw some on the top - we all love plain pasta in this house.

Also, milkandmore dot co dot uk do 10 off your first order! It's basically the milkman - they do anything from bread and bacon to garden compost so worth a look at the website x

As you mention nursery i'm assuming you have a child under 5 - contact your local sure start children's centre (every community has access to their services (free from birth to the child's 5th birthday, look on google for your nearest one). There's a wide range of support they'll be able to offer, including food bank vouchers/access to other food support via local welfare trusts etc that they can link you into

You may also qualify for the '2gether funding' if you local authority is one of the 9 LAs nationally taking part in which case you'll get 15 hours of childcare free if your child is 2 - ask your local children's centre

Thank you all for your kind words I am working on a week 2 so I will post as soon as it is finished - even if we all have a few bob it may help us to cut back a little to save a bit more before the Universal credit comes in, which personally I think is going to be disastrous for a lot of people. It just shows that it can be done, but it is tough especially without a store cupboard of even the basics.
