    Default Hi everyone.. New from oz.

    Hi there...



    My name is Rhiannon, I am a 24 year old single mum to a 5 year adorable

    son. We are from Australia. I figure that even though most of you are in

    USA I can still learn many things from you all.



    I found a crock pot and a breadmaker at second hand type store yesterday

    seeing as I have heard you all talking about the I got both... my first

    question is will this save me much money on the food budget?



    I am very into craft, just started knitting, and I love gardening. I

    have a worm farm all the scraps go into which gives us free fertilizer

    for the veggies.



    My new garden money saver is saving seeds from veg I cook with, drying

    them out, and germintating them = free plants and veggies! My son and I

    really get a kick of seeing them pop up out of egg cartons we plant them

    in (free mini pots!)



    Looking forward to learning lots from you all..

    From Rhiannon

    Hi Rhiannon - and some (a very few) are in the UK :>)



    (NB - all links are to where you can download FREE e-books)



    Yes, yes, yes, the bread maker and slow cooker will definitely save you

    money!



    I batch cook humongous batches of bolognese and chili and freeze them

    down (old margarine or takeaway cartons are great for this) into

    portions. Then you have home-made, healthier and cheaper, ready meals to

    hand. It also means you only have one huge cook-off, and slow cookers

    are much cheaper to run than normal cookers. Quick tip - use 50% mince

    (ground beef into the US folks) and 50% carrots. This is cheaper than

    meat, healthier (and the kids won't notice the extra veg!) and you get

    the natural sweetness from the carrots. You can then use the bolognese

    to make things like home made lasagne (soooo much tastier than shop

    bought!!!). I also batch cook other things like chickpea curry, red

    kidney bean curry etc and freeze down into portions.



    You can put a meal on in the morning, eg stew, curry, whatever you

    fancy, and forget about it until the evening. Hot and ready when you

    want it.

    Bread makers you only need to use the cheapest 'strong' flour (we use

    budget brands no problem). Using oil instead of butter is not only

    cheaper but will make the bread stay fresher a little longer. You don't

    need to stock up on bread when you go shopping, you make it as needed so

    there's less wastage. And nice warm bread, yummmmmmmm. You can also use

    less (or no) fat (oil/butter/shortening to the US) and salt depending on

    taste.

    Another cost-saving gadget, if you can find one in a charity shop or

    request it on Freecycle, is a pressure cooker. Cooking only takes 1/3

    the normal time.



    I batch cook all my (dried then soaked) pulses in 1/3 the time and then

    freeze down in portions ready for use. Cheaper than buying the canned

    ones. To stop the water from frothing up and blocking the vent just add

    a few (literally only a little bit!) drops of cooking oil to the top of

    the water before sealing the unit. This works a treat, even with red

    kidney beans!







    Have fun too, being on this list and sharing/using the tips is fun and

    can become addictive :>)))
