Meal plan 10 – Pea fritters and chips, 17p, vegan
Had this for lunch today. It’s a dinner from Meal Plan 10. I used a potato rather than frozen chips, as on the plan, as that is what I had. I chopped it up into chips, skin and all and dusted it with a pinch of garlic powder and tandoori spice, my favourite. You...

Herby Omelette, chips and peas 31p – Meal Plan 10
Use any herbs you have to hand, fresh are nicer than dried if you can get them. If you want to, and have any available, many additions can be made to an omelette. A few fried mushrooms, a sprinkle of cheddar, a couple of oven dried tomatoes, 3 or 4 prawns, a crispy rasher of bacon, a few shreds of chicken. Have a look and see what you have got in those little dishes in the fridge – you do keep your leftover bits and pieces – don’t you?

Very protracted journey home on Monday due to the closure of the A27, the A358 and the usual delays on the M25. Took us hours to get home – exhausting Tuesday was unpacking, washing, sorting the pile of post and all the usual jobs after a holiday. In the morning, the...

Bannocks with roasted veg hoummous
You can sprinkle a little spice on the top of the bannocks before they are baked. So a pinch of paprika, sea salt, ground pepper, tandoori spice, curry powder, celery salt whatever you have in the cupboard. Maybe that five spice that never seems to get used for anything?
