Some weeks I try and use food stuffs that we've already got in for some meals, just so the food budget isn't stretched during the month. Tonight I made risotto (only my second time making this!) using risotto rice from the cupboard, peas and bacon from the freezer and a stock cube. The only thing I had to buy towards this meal was a small onion, which didn't cost too much.
It was really really tasty! Straight forward, quick and fairly cheap too. A definite keeper for a swift midweek meal.
Remember I mentioned my friendship cake the other day? Well, today was D-day! It was the day to mix in all of the ingredients and wait for the results. To mine I put in some chopped cooking apples, cinnamon, raisins and chopped almonds in. The end result was this:
Nom nom nom. Of course, me and other half had to try it, just to check it tasted okay.... ;)
Verdit? Very yummy, and if we get another starter given to us, definitely one to make again!
