We’ve just been to Asda to get Miss Frugal’s friend a birthday present for
tonight’s sleepover and on the way out we saw an advert for Lurpak butter
Pride – You won’t find it in a ready meal
I love it, it sums up one of the reasons I love cooking things from scratch for my family, the satisfaction I feel when we all sit down to a meal that I have made. My meals are basic at the moment but I am enjoying cooking now and I’m starting to have more confidence in the kitchen.
The other reason, which is my main motivation for learning to cook is the amount of money that I save. If I plan what we are eating a week in advance, I know exactly what I need when we go shopping (although I always buy loads of extras so still learning on that front) and we now only go shopping once a week. I reckon that this has saved about £150 a month.
Off to bake a carrot cake now….
