Penny Pinching Menu

Marshmallow Hearts for Valentine's Day Photographic Print


Yes it it February, the month of Valentine's Day and back to school. I had to buy a shares in a printer and different things. But my daughter is well on her way to her first day of class at uni. At home here, the food I expect will go further, once we stock up on a few things. So we have dipped into my bean store.

Wednesday ~ pizza
Thursday ~ pies
Friday ~ Pumpkin, Chickpea & Spinach Dhal
Saturday ~ Aduki Bean & Pumpkin Soup
Sunday ~ Spaghetti with Zucchini & Cherry Tomatoes
Monday ~ Pies & Chips again
Tuesday ~ Spaghetti Alla Puttanseca

Wednesday ~ Spaghetti Carbonara with Broad Beans needs bacon and cream, leek parmesan
or Broad Bean and Silverbeet Soup needs can lentils
Thursday ~ Tomato & Borlotti Bean Soup
Friday ~ Greek Bean & Silverbeet Stew
Saturday ~ Potato & Egg Salad
Sunday ~ Spinach Crepes with Creamy Mushroom and Mascarpone Filling
Monday ~ Aduki Bean Chilli

Potato & Corn Salad

Success from last week:

both excellent
Wednesday ~ Cheesy Bacon & Pea Macaroni
Thursday ~ Spaghetti Carbonara (uses broad beans)
Chicken Burritos with Brazilian Black Beans the flavours in this were very well thought out, highly recommended. We actually made soft tacos, and we think if we made it again we would also make them. This time we used chicken fillets, but mince would be lovely I think as suggested.

Interesting recipes:
Maria's Vegemite Spaghetti Maria is a very good cook, I will have to try this when I get the courage
Minted Pea & Broad Bean Penne
Silverbeet, Broad Bean & Rice Soup
Sausage, Broad Bean & Mint Pasta
