hi all, spent £138 out of £280 budget so far, which am quite pleased with as I work my month from the 25th to the 25th so nearly half way. I have to say this has been a great exercise for me as it makes you realise just what you can live on.:D
Had a great risotto tonight, here is recipe if anybody is interestedEASY RISOTTO WITH BACON AND PEAS
1 onion,2 cloves garlic, 6 rashers of chopped streaky bacon, 300g risotto rice, 1litre of veg stock, 100g frozen peas.
Fry off chopped onion and bacon, add garlic, rice and stock reduce heat and cover, cook for 15-20 mins until rice is tender stir in peas for last few mins, season. serve sprinkled with parmesan.
(I also added a few mushrooms as they needed using up and substituded some of stock for white wine as needed using up too)
I would say it was a cheap & easy dish and went down a treat.:)
