Easy breakfast this morning – tinned spaghetti on toast of home made bread!
Lunch was left over salad and zucchini slice and tea was a bit of a cheat’s one as I’ve been in my Skinflint workshop today.
I made the Quarter Cake from the Thermomix Budget Busters book and put the mixture in patty pans. I couldn’t bring myself to use the full 250g sugar with only 250g flour, so reduced this to 190g and the mixture was plenty sweet enough.
These worked out quite well, with a flat top, so good for decorating. My patty cakes usually have a peak and rise a lot more than these. I don’t really see this recipe as a budget one with 250g butter and 4 eggs!
Breakfast for tea. There were still some chops from the other night which hadn’t been cooked, so
Chops, home made wedges, baked beans, eggs (fresh from a friends ‘girls’) and bacon:
3 potatoes, unpeeled, cut in half along the flattest part and then into wedges and steamed for a few minutes in the Varoma basket.
Place in a plastic bag with 1/4 cup rice flour, salt, pepper, dash of chilli powder and shake to coat.
Deep fry or spray with oil and bake in a hot oven until cooked.
A dearth of green on the plate, but we had salad for lunch.
No expenditure today.
