8 Brilliant budget-friendly recipes for the week before Pay Day

19 Jan 2017
 

We all know that the week before Pay Day in January feels longer than the quest to find a parking spot in a mall two days before Christmas, and it’s often tricky trying to make food ends meet if you've over-splurged in December.

I’ve found though, that some people actually get a thrill out of it – my brother told me once he tried to see how long he could survive on just apples in an attempt to save money. If you ask me that’s a bit extreme but each to their own I guess. One thing is for certain though, entertaining is not on the cards for the week leading up to a January Pay Day.

To make the next couple of days a bit easier on the pocket, we’ve selected a few tasty recipes that will keep both your tummy and bank account happy!

1. Potato and onion frittata

2. Tomato, spinach and coriander dhal

3. Beef satay stir-fry

4. Courgette and mint bruschetta

5. Budget chocolate mousse

6. Sloppy Joe's

7. Chicken and spinach pasta

8. Vegetarian lasagne

Yours in frugal food prep,
Tessa
