A main course soup – mulligatawny, 46p a big bowl

I bagged some lovely organic beef mince on yellow sticker last week and stashed them in the freezer for when I was ready to use them. They worked out, even on yellow sticker, at just a bit more than ordinary 10% fat beef mince, that's the organic part I suppose. Today...
