I’ve been sharing with you some of the ways we cut down on the costs of meals and eliminate food waste. Today’s post is about school lunches, this can cause debate amongst parents across the board. How do you make sure your child gets a healthy meal without getting bored of eating the same thing? Well small boy doesn’t ever seem to get fed up of the same type of food so in the winter he has soups, pasta and sauces and risottos.
I do his lunch for school in the slow cooker over night (unless its already left over smoosh heated up) as I’m not really coordinated first thing in the morning to chop veg etc. dried soup Mix is our friend full of lentils and other dried veg and grains.
Small boy came down with a cold though so instead of having it in his awesome food flask he had it in a bowl.
Our pudding for tea was also made from leftovers, our milk was starting to turn, bread was stale and the apples given to us by a lady who thought her apples were compostable two weeks ago were a bit wrinkly so we made a bread and apple egg custard type pudding
After chopping the apples, and letting the stale bread soak in a mix of egg, sugar and milk we added them into the baking dish apples first then the bread mix then baked it until it was brown, although in our case a little black or caramelised as I’d forgotten about it lol
