Submit A Recipe Of Your Own To Thrifty Lesley


There are masses of great budget recipes on Thrifty Lesley, and there’s always room for another cheap family recipe. Got a dish everyone loves, that your family ask for again and again? Found something new that you are desperate to share?

The Facebook group often has really great ideas and occasionally I write up one of those ideas as a full recipe post. It would be interesting to have more reader recipes, and when I saw this feature on the new recipe plugin I’ve started using, I thought we could give it a go and see what happens! 😉

I won’t post so many that things become disproportionate


Please also bear in mind the budget that we work to here. A dish could be fantastically good, but if it costs £3 a head, it won’t fit in with everything else

We work to a minimal budget, so please only submit a recipe if it will fit in £1 a day.  I generally allow 50p for a main meal, 20p each for breakfast or lunch and 10p for a cake or bake. So there or thereabouts please
