Meal Plan Monday and More Frugal Food

Sunday Dinner was Mince, onions, dumplings and lots and lots of vegetables, one of my big tips for being frugal and following your meal plans is to make it as easy as possible, so today food will follow on and utilise yesterdays leftovers and additional amount that we cooked.

Cooking in Bulk - Mads tip of the week

When I see vegetables or other food marked down I always see if there are ways I can incorporate them in our meals or meal plan.  I use tons of onions, so every so often, I get MadDad (I can not stand peeling onions) to do a big peel and chop and we then cook them off and pop them in bags and freeze them.

We did this yesterday.  20 onions chopped and diced and then cooked turned into six portions for the freezer and two for this week in with the mince.  I use onions a lot, with casserole, Curry's, dahl, mince etc, etc, etc

So what are your fail-safe recipes and favorite family meals?
