As we are skint until payday (in 10 days time) I need some meal ideas to keep us going until then!
I have a full storecupboard with all the usuals- rice, pasta, couscous, lentils, chickpeas, beans, tinned toms, chorizo, etc etc but am totally lacking in inspiration! all the meal ideas i see in magazines seem to use expensive things eg meat and fish.
i would love some ideas please using the stuff we already have.
Dps fav....you nee onion, pepper, tomatos, chorizo, egg and cheese.
Fry chorizo in a pan, remove. Fry onion and peppers (oh and a bit of garlic) add tomatos. when cooked add chorizo back in. Stir togther, bung in oven proof dish, make hollows and crack eggs into dips. Cover in cheese. Bake til eggs cooked and cheese melted. Serve with salad/crusty bread.
Chop up the chorizo and fry in an ovenproof pot, chuck in the spinach and whatever else you have hanging around (sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms or whatever), whisk about 9-10 eggs in a bowl with a slug of milk, pour over the stuff in the pot, cook on the hob until all but about the top centimetre are done, and then put it in the oven to finish the top.
That makes a big one - it will do me, DH and DD (16m) for dinner and for lunch the next day.
Rainbow rice - rice, cooked in chicken stock, with diced carrot, sweetcorn, frozen peas etc. Can be served with strips of marinated grilled chicken if you've got that, or stir through some chopped ham.
