All these baking and cooking shows often make us feel a bit inadequate in the kitchen, or that we should be having dinner parties every weekend. There really is no shame in simple food that you love to eat.
In celebration of this I’m going to have pasta and pesto tonight with the kids, with cheese on top.
For 5 of us we’ll spend c. 47p per person
pasta 60p – plastic bag will be reused for any food waste that can’t be composted
pesto 85p – homemade in glass jar in the fridge, but bought is usually in glass too
cheese 40p – part of a pre-grated pack, bag will be used for food waste as well
garlic bread – if we have some in the freezer left over from my birthday… about 10p slice…
So it’s simple and cheap and we love it!
