A few entries ago I blogged about a recipe for very thrifty tomato scones at 3p each. I ate one runty one while it was still warm and, showing huge restraint, froze the remainder.
Today's school lunch consisted of one of those scones, a little pot of savers soft cheese and another little pot of a chutney I made a while ago which is now absolutely gorgeous.
These little pots are tiny - they take 1 oz or just under 30 mls. Just perfect for a frugal portion of 1/8 of a tub of the cheese (7.5p) and a heaped tsp of chutney ( 5p at a guess as I have no way of knowing) to go on two halves of a tomato scone (3p).
That, with a piece of fruit made a most delicious lunch as well as being delightfully frugal. OK, I could happily have devoured another scone but I didn't have it, so I didn't. It would have been just greed anyway as I was perfectly satisfied with the one and am only just starting to feel hungry again, while dinner is heating.
Definitely one to remember and repeat so I thought I would share with you. Thank you again to Thrifty Lesley for the scone recipe.
