    Last day of kids' holiday today and I am working tonight 3-11pm. For brunch I cooked saut!ed cabbage (1 1/2 heads bought last Thursday with YS for 2p each so it's cost us only 3p for brunch) and lunch to work are two cheese savoury sandwiches using YS burger buns at 1p each and left over grated cheese from the fridge and a bit of mayonnaise. Get in! Less than 5p for 2 sandwiches.

    Welcome new people! I hope you find this thread useful, i know i do!

    I have been busy cooking and freezing food in order to stay MSE and OS in my LTWs.

    I made:

    -Vegan Meatballs
    -Vegan Burgers
    -Meat meatballs (just mince, onion, pepper, salt an an egg)- these are for my kids, as i dont eat animal products. But i thought i could make them a sub roll with meatballs and salad..kind of subway-esque!

    I hope nobody minds if i add those recipes to the list? If you have any amazing recipes that you want to share, feel free to post them and i'll add them to the list.

    As i was adding my recipes to the list on page 1, i noticed that all of the recipe links had expired or were no longer available.

    So i have now provided new links for all of those recipes, so they should now all work :) If you ever click on a link and it doesnt go anywhere,or goes to an expired recipe, please let me know an i can find it again.
