This is my second favourite thing to do with a pack of sausages: Italian style meatballs and pasta. Rather than faffing with beef mince and seasonings, these juicy balls are already pre-seasoned and yummy, without having to do much to them. This recipe makes enough for 100 small hedgehogs, or around 3 HUGE servings … Continue reading SAUSAGE TIME: £1.28 per serve for these lovely balls. Oh-so worth it.

Pizza FROM SCRATCH BC IT’S NOT HARD
Listen up, my hoes. Everyone is always surprised when I say I make pizza from scratch, as this entertaining yet entirely fictional dialogue evidences: --- "I made some pizza yesterday." --- "what, like the base and sauce too?" ---"well yeah...otherwise it would just have been a ready-made pizza, y'know." ---"omg that's so cool; how do … Continue reading Pizza FROM SCRATCH BC IT’S NOT HARD
Mexican Chilli Non Carne (many proteins, much filling)
This chilli is the bomb. It's bloody yummy, awesomely cheap and will make sure your stomach is well and truly full before going on the sesh, so you don't end up in an ally chatting with a randomer at 1am because you had no dinner.

Hearty Fritatatatatatatatata: 25p per serve
I made this this morning before my lecture at 11. It's basically a perverted Spanish omelette so is v healthy as it contains many egg and much veg. Most recipes for this sort of thing say "fry the onions and potatoes for 30 minutes or until the potato is soft" but so I used my … Continue reading Hearty Fritatatatatatatatata: 25p per serve
NO ONE LIKES OVERNIGHT OATS: HERE’S THE REAL DEAL. 16p per serve.
"Yeah I'm actually super-into nutrition and veg and all that" *adds chocolate to breakfast cereal on a daily basis* Porridge. Horrible word, delicious taste. If you do it properly. So many, sadly, have been scarred by crap porridge: lumps, gungy texture, even burn bits on the bottom. Oh, and no flavouring apart from white granulated … Continue reading NO ONE LIKES OVERNIGHT OATS: HERE’S THE REAL DEAL. 16p per serve.

Make it go further by adding a five bean mix if you … Continue reading The easiest vegetable curry you’ve never made: 30p per serve
This is where it gets pretentious: a pesto recipe.
Dw, I'll keep this one as short and sweet as a penguin rolled in sugar: WHY THE HELL DOES PESTO COST SO DAMN MUCH. I mean, £3.30 (main pesto brand, scala - tesco's own is £2.35!!), really?! And you get maybe 2 or 3 meals out of that. Over £1 per serve for a sodding … Continue reading This is where it gets pretentious: a pesto recipe.
Butternut Squash and ginger soup: 20p per serve
Ok so this soup uses butternut squash because they were the cheapest thing going at lidl the other week - just 69p for one massive vegetable that ended up making about 9 portions of soup. You'll be able to find butternut squash for under a quid anywhere at this time of year and they are … Continue reading Butternut Squash and ginger soup: 20p per serve
