Thrifty Thursday… making your meals go further

I don’t know about you but I am always looking for ways to eat healthily but on a budget. Feeding a family of 4 can be very expensive.

My mission this year is to make as many savings as I can and hunt out as many bargains as I can. Every Thursday I will share them with you in what will be known as “Thrifty Thursday”

This weeks money saving idea is my 3 meals from 1 bird. For £5.50 in Tesco I got an extra large whole chicken which I roasted to make meal 1.

I saved enough chicken to split into 2 more meals which I have frozen and plan to make a Chicken pie and a Chicken and  bacon Chowder with. Thats less than £1.85/meal for the chicken in these recipes. When you consider a whole chicken is only £5.50 and 4 Chicken breasts would cost you the same thats a massive saving. I’ve even made some chicken stock from the carcass.

See you next week for another Thrifty Thursday.
