LBLUK 2014, another alternative basket, from Aldi again
LBLUK 2014 - day 2, I really want a cup of tea!

Having researched a basket of food with just £5 available at the checkout, I am sort of attuned to it now and I have come up with 2 more, both from Aldi. This is the first one.

I wondered if perhaps, other than LBL’ers, it might be useful for people to shop with.

What do you think, useful? Or not?

2 toast, 2 eggs, on toast or as sandwich
3 scones, 50g Brie
Soup of 200g carrots, 200g onions, dumplings. To make the dumplings, make a dough using flour and water and break off walnut sized pieces. Simmer them either in the soup, or in water for about 10 minutes.

Dinners
100g flatbread and 1 of the below
Flatbread is flour and water, mixed to a soft dough. Leave for at least two hours, so make first thing and leave covered until you want it. Then roll it out to about 0.5cm and dry fry in a pan, or cook under a hot grill, turning when the first side is flecked with brown. Spread with a tiny bit of spread if you like.
Or make pasta with the flour, maybe using 1 of the eggs. 50g flour a serving, mix to a soft dough with water. Knead a little and roll out thinly, to the thickness of a credit card. Cut into strips, small strips or squares and simmer for just a couple of minutes in boiling water. Can be kept in the fridge for a few days

1 egg, 50g Brie, 100g onion
200g onion, caramelised, with 200g carrots, grated and sauted
Roast 200g onions, 200g carrots
1 egg, 50g Brie, 100g onion
200g onion, caramelised, with 200g carrots, grated and sauted

If using pasta, do a Carbonara type dish on the days using egg, Brie and onion

Snacks
Scones and jam, 250g flour, 100g spread
Pancakes and jam
Toast and jam

For the pancakes, mix 50-100g flour depending on how hungry you are, to a batter with water. Heat a little spread in a frying pan and drop in spoonfuls of batter. Cook until the top is firm, then flip over and do the other side.
