CAULIFLOWER IS IN SEASON!

I love cauliflower and it's in season. All the more reason to try it again if you haven't had it for a while. Try it raw with dips or in salads and cook it in curries. it's filling and low in calories and has a low G.I.
Read more about this underused vegetable HERE and get a fabulous recipe for Cauliflower cheese HERE.
Happy Frugal Eating!

IT'S SHROVE TUESDAY! (OR PANCAKE DAY TO YOU AND ME)

Yes, it's Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday - time to whip up that pancake batter and juice those lemons! Yes, I do like my pancakes with sugar and lemon, but I really must try eating pancakes at other times of the year. They are a truly frugal food just a bit of flour, a couple of eggs and milk makes loads of pancakes and you can fill them with anything you like - fruit, jam, chocolate spread, leftover vegetables, meat etc to make a filling sweet or savoury snack or meal.
More information and my simple pancake batter recipe HERE.
