Shopping list priced January 2018
As my new book is called Home Economics How to eat like a king on a budget, I thought I would show you how to do just that. But still eat well even with young fussy eaters.
You won’t be eating Swan or Duchess potatoes mainly because the swans belong to the Queen and she’d be very upset if you ate one, and no to Duchess potatoes because we had them at school in the 80’s and they were pretty disgusting, so I wouldn’t even bother telling you how to make them. But there is a delicious Coronation chicken recipe, and a pretty good simple Queen of puddings recipe.
This weeks challenge is for a fictional family of 4 that live in the UK and like to shop in Waitrose. The family comprises of the father Bill and his wife Kat. They have 2 young children Lottie and Jorge.
Like everyone they too are pulling their belts in so this challenge is aimed at them. Again I have included a few treats as well as breakfast, lunches and an afternoon tea of little sandwiches and scones for when grandma comes to visit, so no one should feel deprived.
