This is just a short blog to remind all of our readers that as well as this frugal blog, we also have Frugal Food Forums where we regularly discuss topics such as home cooking, foraging, preserving, bread making and, of course, our grocery challenges.
From edible flowers to hand made chocolates – food is a fantastic subject and we would love you to join us in the forums discussing how to get the most for your money when feeding a family on a small budget.
Now that we are into porridge, soup and hot puddings time of year, we can start experimenting with simple ingredients and cost out the ingredients while also looking at cooking costs. With the utilities companies already bumping up the prices of electricity and gas yet again, now is a great time to join us in the battle to beat the home budget, be it in energy, food or general household shopping.
How many meals can you make from a single chicken?
How many meals can you make from a pack of mince?
Could you feed your family on £1 per person per day for all meals and still afford the toiletries, laundry and cleaning products in that tight a budget?
Do you forage for fruit and berries to make your own jams and jellies?
Have you ever tried cooking with cucumbers?
Can you bake a loaf of bread for 25p?
Would you like some soup recipes?
Can you make your garden (or other growing space) produce basic ingredients that could become a meal?
Have you baked cakes from courgettes?
How do you make your pickle and/or relish?
This is your invite to join us free in the FRUGAL FOOD FORUMS
Tonight, I will be joining in the online discussion about food that’s being hosted on Twitter. If you would like to take part, simply sign in to your www.twitter.com account and search for/follow @Frugaldom We use what’s known as a hash tag (# this is a hash tag) word for following the discussions, so look for #dghour and you should be able to see all the comments made by those attending tonight’s Dumfries & Galloway based food discussion.
Mark your diaries – on 9th November, I will be hosting an hour-long discussion on the topic of moneysaving. Everyone is welcome, even if you have no other connection with Dumfries and Galloway than being a follower, reader or member of the Frugal Blog, Frugal Forums or Frugaldom websites.
