simple supper

Hello readers xxx

Thanks for dropping by. It’s freezing in here tonight and I’m snuggled up by the fire, then I’m off to bed to read. I’m too tired to cook tonight so I’ve indulged in one of my favourites. One tin of Tesco Value tuna, a couple of spoons of value mayonaise and two potatoes in the microwave.  I ate it with some raw spinach salad with some tinned sweetcorn and that was it. Cheap, healthyish and very quick.

What simple supper can you share on here?

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx

  1. I made fishfinger pie earlier-grilled a pack fishfingers, put them in square baking dish, top with can cold baked beans, layer of grated cheese, layer leftover mash then baked in a hot oven for ten minutes. Quick (ish) if you have leftover cooked spuds!


  2. For simple and cheap I'll make sidekicks which we pay 75 cents – $1 for and then add frozen corn and peas to the mix. My kids love it and it's a little healthier than mac and cheese


  3. My husband had a whole wheat tuna sandwich with mayonnaise, and I had a Whole wheat bacon and cheddar sandwich with mayonnaise and each a nice cup of tea.

    For lunch we had homemade hamburger and vegetable barley soup with crackers and tea. All the vegetables came from my garden, and the meat was our own. JB


  4. A couple of handfuls of brown pasta with a spoon or two of red pesto stirred through and a sprinkle of veggie parmesan cheese, and if I have a little bit of time (and energy), homemade garlic bread to go with it.

    Simple, pretty nutricious and definitely yummy!!


  5. A sheet of puff pastry on a baking tray with sliced tomatoes, wedges of red onions, and slices of goats cheese. Drizzle with olive oil and basil, in oven for 20 mins, add pesto, slice up and eat (after it's cooled down a bit!)



  6. I like mushrooms and tomatoes on toast, made in a frying pan with lots of pepper and a bit of balsamic vinegar, maybe garlic if I have any.

    I must say, tuna coming out of a tin, drained, in a salad I can eat but mashed up ….. I just don't fancy!


  7. One tin of tuna with half a head of cabbage roughly chopped, pepper and chicken bouillon cube, simmered until the cabbage turns soft. Serve with bread or poured over some cooked rice. Or omit the cabbage and cook tuna with a tin of creamed corn, a bit of milk, pepper and the bouillon. Equally easy and quick. I grew up on these “stews”!


  8. Tomato basil soup – I thinly slice a white onion, saute in olive oil. Add a tin of chopped tomatoes (after pureeing them in the blender). Add 3/4 cup milk and chopped basil. It's easy, quick, cheap, healthy and divine. Especially with crusty bread.


  9. We like simple food. Try this casserole.
    Bean and Rice Casserole

    Preheat oven to 350
    Saute in a large skillet:
    2 TB oil
    1/2 C chopped onion
    1 minced garlic clove
    1 C chopped celery
    1/4 C chopped green pepper (optional)
    1/4-1/2 lb. hamburger, sausage, or chopped ham (you could use chicken, too)

    When the meat is brown, stir in:
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp pepper
    1/2 tsp seasoned salt
    2 1/2 C cooked beans (any variety), or one 15 oz. can
    1 10 oz.can tomato soup, or 1 8 oz can tomato sauce or chopped tomatoes
    1 beef bouillon cube dissolved in 1 C hot water
    2- 2 1/2 C. cooked rice

    Heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Place in a greased casserole and bake for 45 minutes. Top with grated cheese return to oven until cheese is melted.

    Also, since you like tuna, try creamed tuna over mashed potatoes or toast. Just make a white sauce and stir in the tuna. Yummy!
