Simply good food to share from a mum who likes to feed her kids well. A guide and a little bit of inspiration for those who'd like to cook a bit more but haven't got the time or the energy to meal plan. I'll post daily/weekly updates of recipes that work for me. Good food doesn't have to involve hours of hard work and preparation.

Day four of frugal challenge
There are people in this house complaining about the food. When I said we were having jacket potatoes and baked beans for tea there was almost a revolt going on. The kids insisted on having beans on toast, they both declared a dislike of jacket potatoes. Thankfully I had a loaf in the freezer as I forgot to order a fresh one this week. I scraped out the inside of the potato from the two now spare in the oven and gave the crispy skins to Steve to eat. Being too eager to eat, I forgot to photograph the meal, so I could only photgraph what was left. I'll find a use for the mashed potato tomorrow night. I enjoy jacket potatoes, as I don't have them very often. I always oil and salt the skins, which I think are the best part. I didn't scrimp on the baked beans and bought Heinz and sprinkled grated cheddar on top. If I'd known the weather was going to be as good this week I would have planned meals that were perhaps more summery. Somehow I don"t think I can face lentil and tomato soup this week which was on the menu. I'll need to have a rethink.
