These cold, cold days mean only one thing in this house.
Six scoops of dried soup mix bought from Approved Foods whenever it is on offer (the last lot cost me 25p a bag) ...
... and one large scoop of Vegetable Bouillon mix from the same place (an unbelievable £1 for a 2.5kg tub) ...
.... equals one huge pan of steaming hot and tasty soup.
I add any veggies that are lurking in the bottom of the fridge and a spoonful of garlic or chilli flakes, this alters the flavour slightly each time and keeps things interesting. Making it at the start of the week and keeping it in a couple of large jugs in the fridge, it means that I can have a warming bowl of soup for lunch in amongst the sorting and packing, and taken to work in his 'soup mug' Lovely Hubby can zap it in the microwave and have one too.
Simple food at it's best.
So we are literally eating for pennies, the only drawback is it's not emptying the freezer as quickly as we would have liked and there is still quite a bit to eat our way through.
