last week of the month innit. 2 or 3 quid a pop, and maybe with some vegetables or sutin for the vitamins
he was at his lowest ebb, financially, but wouldn't accept any money. I used to stick tenners in his pockets when he was asleep, but no. always ahnded it back.
anyway, he lived on £1 a day. lots of potato based dishes and pork shizzle. pork is fucking dirt cheap these days, bro
mushy peas, ham, pepper and brown sauce on big brown barms.
big brown barms
beans on toast
Yep, some pretty fattening fare ...
Dead easy and filling and tasty.
But bulk it out a bit with lentils and water and more tomatoes and whack some sweet potato in there too.
You may be reduced to eating noodles for every meal. I'd be okay with this as I love noodles.
that's well easy.
dried beans are dirt cheap, then get whatever veg is in season and cheap from a greengrocer. Spices are cheapest from any indian shop or corner shop, or even the world section of Tescos (where they keep the weird Polish, Indian and Carribean stuff) rather than the "normal" aisle. Not interesting after a few days, but cheap as chips.
Chip shop chips are cheap too actually. £1.50 and you can feed a family of four on a single portion from my local I reckon.
Gently fry and then add pre cooked rice, stir it all up. Looks pants but tastes pretty good.
a ring of chorizo (lidl - 1.29)
three heads of garlic in a pack (£1)
pack of three peppers (1.50)
some fresh chili (£1)
Pasta/spaghetti of your choosing
this makes three meals, at least.
Slice and halve some of the chorizo, put in pan with at least half a head of chopped garlic and one of the chopped peppers and half a chopped chili. Cook on low heat with some butter and olive oil for a good twenty mins - stirring it up a bit now and then - til' the peppers go soft.
meanwhile cook up some pasta. When pasta is done, mix all together.
Bloody delicious. and cheap, and well easy.
4 white onions = 40p
1 cucumber = 80p
5 tomatoes = 75p
Feta cheese = £1.50
Cut up the onion, tomatoes and cucumber and grate the feta over the top, season with white wine vinegar
should look like this
one chicken breast per person
1 tsp lazy chilli, 1 tsp lazy garlic
cook the above together (add pepper last, natch)
cook some cous cous (takes about 3 mins, just pour boiling water over it)
mix some raisins or something in with it
serve chicken stuff on the cous cous mixture.
low GI number as well.
Most recipes are free. Don't think I've ever paid for one.
It's a vaguely Moroccan influenced chickpea stew thing...
Chop up some red onions, garlic and green chilli and grate some ginger. Heat that up in a pan with some oil on a moderate heat. Add chickpeas and enough water to cover. Add some cumin and turmeric for a bit of spice and colour, season with black pepper and salt and then add a teaspoon of tomato puree. Let it simmer for a bit then wilt some spinach in at the end.
While you're wilting the spinach, heat up a pitta bread and make some cous cous or a tomato salad. Serve with the cous cous or salad on one side, chickpea stew on the pitta bread on the other. Bit of homous with it or yoghurt if you fancy.
