In true first-year-of-university style we undertook the task of curing her of her vegetarianism…and how did we do that?

Frugal Meals #1 The easiest tomato soup you’ll ever make

It’s not going to be easy as food prices have gone up noticeably in our local shops (I paid £2.69 for one organic red pepper the other day!) so that means I have been busy rummaging through my emergency ‘frugal meals’ recipes, and thought I would let you in on the best over the next few weeks.
