I have gone many years without having to live alone, so for the first time I'm having to tighten my belt when it comes to things like food budgeting. Now, I'm a big boy and I have the common sense to do things like save leftovers, cook big portions and freeze them, and base my meals around cheap dried food like pasta and rice.
Trouble is my culinary repertoire is a bit limited in this regard, and I'm getting a bit sick of eating bolognese and carbonara every night. I hear lentils are a great budget staple, but fuck knows how to make nice food out of them. In addition, I've always been a devoted carnivore, and I'm finding it hard to get the amount of meat I crave without overspending or wasting anything.
Do you chaps have any ideas, or recipes that you use yourself, in order to make rich, tasty, tangy food on a limited budget?
