Cinnamon Toast for breakfast, 4p a slice
This was breakfast this morning, Cinnamon Toast, 4p a slice, very scrummy (we won’t mention the Nespresso coffee I had with it – sshhh!). I have been thinking about breakfasts, and Cinnamon Toast sprang to mind. Decided to try it without any egg
This was really delicious, I am going to try it with other spices. Ginger, Mixed Spice, Nutmeg – yum yum 🙂 .
When I make a meal plan for Thrifty Lesley, I budget a fluid 20p for breakfast and lunch, 50p for dinner, 10p for a cakey thing on the £1 a day, so if you have this for breakfast, options open up. A 2nd slice! or an extra 16p somewhere else during the day, a more expensive dinner perhaps, or pop the extra few pence in a jar to save up for some kind of treat. A new nail varnish or lipstick, or a pint down the pub.
This is from Meal Plan 2, a complete 7 day plan for 2 adults. Contains 3 meals a day, plus snacks , all recipes and a shopping list
Cinnamon Toast for breakfast
- 1 slice bread
- 2 tsps veg oil
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp sugar
- Drizzle a tsp of oil on each side of a slice of bread and rub it in.
- Then sprinkle on half a tsp of sugar and a generous pinch cinnamon and press it in, flipped over the bread and repeated the oil/sugar/cinnamon.
- Put the slice in the toaster and toast it for about 3 minutes. Just right, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Serve immediately
Take care of your family and your budget
Before putting together the meal planners, Lesley surveyed what was needed. Of the existing 14 budget meal plans, most are cheap meals for 2 people so can be sized up or down. Others are cheap family meals for 4 people, or meals for one
