Credit Crunch Munch May 2015

GetAttachment.aspx-2

For this month I am delighted to be hosting Credit Crunch Munch, the place to find delicious frugal recipes and the brainchild of Helen from Fuss Free Flavours and Camilla from Fab Food 4 All.

Food that is in season is always good value, so you could base your recipe on or include foods that are in season in May: asparagus, rhubarb, new potatoes, lamb, watercress, spring onions, to name just a few.

Other money-saving ideas could be:

  • Dishes using cheaper ingredients – cheap cuts of meat or vegetarian
  • Meals using leftovers
  • Meals using up the ends of packets
  • Substitutions of cheaper ingredients
  • Packed lunches
  • Meals that use less energy to cook
  • Pressure cooking
  • Slow cooking
  • Faster cooking – less oven time for example
  • Batch cooking for the freezer
  • Sustainable foods
  • Food you have grown yourself
  • Meals from reduced food in the supermarket
