Over the weekend, my beloved and I have decided to try to go on holiday so we are going to need to do a bit more belt tightening.  I know we are not supposed to even think about a holiday when we are trying to pay off debts but since we have not been away for leisure in almost three years, our exhaustion is speaking a bit louder than our debt. We are hoping that after we recharge our batteries we will come back to hit the ground running.  Why am I telling you all this? Well I have had to search for more food bargains over the weekend.

Lidl has been doing half price specials on weekends. This weekend they had lean ground beef for half price (£1.24 for  500 g)  and red peppers for just 50p each.  The items on special change every week but it is well worth it to check out their website before visiting and if the sale is especially good, get there early as stuff sells out quickly.

Monday – Duck breasts with Moroccan spices served with  fruit and chick pea couscous (on special from local butcher)

Tuesday – Impossibly Easy Taco Pie – I use my own seasoning instead of the Old El Paso one – nicer and cheaper to do your own.

Wednesday- Going to a Meet-up so I will be bringing a sandwich with me.

Thursday – Roast chicken with new potatoes and veg

Friday – Chorizo, red pepper and feta frittata – using some of the potatoes from the previous night.

I will be making red pepper soup to bring for lunch from the Lidl haul.

Have a great week! If you want some more menus have a look at OrgJunkie.

    Yum, love the sound of the duck breasts. Just had some amazing duck in a restaurant at the weekend but have never cooked it. You’re inspiring me to try!

    I have just started making duck breasts, they are pretty simple – just scored the skin with a super sharp knife or I use a scapel then season, put in a very hot pan skin side down until the they get a bit crispy, then turn over, lower heat let cook until at the desired doneness. Always let them rest.
