I am doing 2 menus this week. The Week 3 $25 menu plan and also the 1st week of the $50 fortnight. All meals that are photographed, I did actually cook. Sometimes there will be repeat photos of dishes that repeat (Beans on toast, Poached eggs leftovers for lunch etc)
$25 per week Stand Alone Menu 3 – Day 1
Porridge (disclaimer I did NOT cook this.. Honestly porridge is just something I just cannot eat, but I know a lot of people do and it is a very budget friendly product.)
Soup and Toast
In a pan saute some bacon and onion in some butter. mix up a heaped dessertspoon of cheese sauce mix in 1/4 cup of milk. Ad to the pan and stir until thickened. Add in a cup of boiled pasta and mix until the sauce coats the pasta well. Serve.
And now for something COMPLETELY different. Cupcakes make with packet cake mix and lemonade. I came across this idea on Pinterest. Just 2 ingredients… Cake Mix and soft drink. (I used Vanilla Cake Mix and Lemonade)
Well I just had to try it. Homebrand Cake Mix is 80c and soft drink just 75c.
In mixer, mix the cake mix and 350ml of softdrink.
Mix for 3-5 minutes and bake in cupcake liners for 15-18 minutes at 180 degrees.
I didn’t think it was going to work as it made a very wet batter. It did rise, but I think next time I will turn the fan off in my oven as they got blown around a bit as they rose.
They taste like a normal cupcake. I am pleasantly surprised with the result of these.
