Cinnamon Toast for breakfast, 4p a slice


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

Cinnamon Toast

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
