LIFESTYLE: Feeding The Family For Under £10
Leeds Building Society challenged me to create a fun meal in for £10. Their Kick My Habits research found that the average Briton spends £17.34 per week on evenings out. (it's alot higher for me and Andrew haha alot alot) so if we were to substitute that £17 night out for a £10 night in that saves £382 per year!
So what did I do with my challenge? I not only fed myself, I fed the whole family with it! Easy! This meal is fun and easy to make and everyone always loves it. Growing up, it was my favourite meal of the week and as soon as I was old enough, my mum taught me how to make it. Now its my specialty haha
What You Will Need:
Spaghetti - £0.95
Tinned Tomatoes - £1.25
Bisto Beef Gravy Granules - £2.00
Mince Meat - £4.00
-Start to boil the water for pasta
-Brown meat and drain excess fat
-Half fill pan with water
-Add whole can of tinned tomatoes and break them up with a fork
-Add gravy granules to taste - the more you add the thicker it gets, just how I like it
-Add a few splashes of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce and mix together
- Leave to simmer for 10 minutes and mix every so often.
and that's the meat done, now you just need to cook the spaghetti, if your clever, you'll work out how to get them both done at the same time, I haven't got that yet! Then you plate it all up and add some grated cheese on top! Yummy
