I do like that recipe. My kids love creamy pasta dishes whilst me and hubby love tomato based dishes. So I will be trying that one out. Could you use EMLEA as I have carton in fridge needing used up?
Just had my final shop of Jan delivered by Mr T (i am down with flu and this was the most sensible option). Did what I usually do...Mysupermarket and onto Tesco site ... this was the cheapest option and that was including delivery.
Have lots of whoopsies from last week in freezer so total including deliv £41.35. For me this is amazing. Did stock-take of freezer etc and meal-planned accordingly and this is me until next tuesday.
So I have to say thank you to all contributers on this thread for all the tips and comradeship throughout the month. If you had have told me last Jan that I could feed a family of 5 for month, with great food and extras for my final sig (see below as I am going to update it shortly) I would have said def no way JOSE!!!
So I start with the same budget next tuesday and take it from there.
What will happen to this thread as its named JANUARY Groc challenge...sorry if its a dumb question
take care all

1 slice of bacon per person , chopped and fried in a dry pan till crispy
2 Garlic Cloves (Grated or 2 teaspoons of jar or dried) add to pan fry for a few seconds. (you don't need oil of fat)
If the food sticks free it with a little water.
1 Chicken breast sliced 1 breast does 2 people (not too thick) if using uncooked add now. Fry for a about 5-10 minutes, until cooked.
1 Red onion thinly sliced, add to pan and fry for a few seconds
If you have any peppers you can add this to the dish too. (But not needed its just as nice without. I've used mushrooms in this dish too, I fry them in a separate pan until crispy if using) and add here*
1 Chicken Stock cube diluted in about 200 ml hot water, (or fresh stock)
Small Carton of cream
White wine. ( I freeze leftover wine and add the cubes)
If your using cooked chicken add it now. *
Simmer for a few minutes, if you want the sauce thicker add about a desert-spoon of corn-flour to a little milk and stir through sauce.
If your using more than 1 chicken breast add more milk, about the same quantity as the cream.
A few chilli flakes and seasoning if liked
Stir sauce into cooked pasta (Bows look pretty).
Sprinkle with a little chopped parsley just before serving.
Quick easy, looks great and tastes yummy!

I make something similar to this, but often use thinly sliced chorizo instead of bacon- gives a lovely smokey taste to it. I occasionally add peas too as DS (aged 3) loves his peas! I sometimes do a tomato sauce instead of creamy......oh the wonders of pasta lol!
Haggis, neeps and tatties for Burns night tonight- I have veggie haggis and DH has normal (half of his stowed away in freezer for another night as was a 6 slice pack), DS will have a sausage!
