If you're a veggie, Quorn can be quite expensive so see if any of your local health food shops have an equivalent (usually a lot cheaper) or if your supermarket has it's own brand stuff

And pasta is a student godsend. Along with instant 9p noodles. Try and buy stuff from local markets when you can, it's a lot lot cheaper than supermarkets. And everyone knows if you go to the supermarket at closing time you can get cheap stuff, which you can freeze and then use at a later date

Vodka.


Ha, ummm I was eating jacket potatoes, turkey or vegetable (sweet potato, kidney beans, butter beans, any veg that needed finishing) curry - sometimes with rice, pasta with tomato type sauce with turkey or chopped chorizo and onions etc. Instant noodles. Paté on toast.
I only had a takeaway about 5 times in the year, which is impression in comparison to some people I lived with.

cooking. I love to cook everything. Triniy food Roti, curry chicken and rice, Mexican, Italian and American dishes.
Curry chicken and rice is quick so is spaghetti.
I'm guessing you dont actually make the roti yourself? I dont cook but I will need to learn especially curry! :love:
Back to the thread: easy stuff since currently I dont cook that much but things that use the same ingredients, like bolgnese, chill con carne, tacos and lasagne all use mince meat of some kind.

Steak from Tescos. You can get the quick fry steaks for about £3.50. Two packs of those, normally have 5 to 6 steaks in a pack. Wrap 2 to a foilpack and freeze. Use that with Worcestar Sauce and beans - does a lovely meal.

Failing that? Good curry or Shish Kebab (drools)..

Wow, I am impressed. I cant even make curry at the moment! My lack of roti making skills explains the long term absence of roti in my house but tbf my cousins who actually live in Trinidad dont know how to make it! But then that may be because they always have a close supply....:o:

Lol I understand that. Few of my cousins know how to make it either. My Grandmother was very determined to make sure my mom didnt 'lose her roots' after they moved to America and consequently my mom shared the determination with us. I love making curry as well. It was the first dish I learned to make so I'm sure you will have fun learning. If you know a good roti or curry place in York please let me know lol so I can save time on the cooking.

Easy stuff like lasagne, chilli, curry, fish... etc.

I'll probably make more than I need so I can freeze it and have it twice in that week to save money, I'll probably have microwave meals a couple of times a week too.

Yeah my Grandma is very into cooking but my mother isnt really! I'm not sure when I'm gonna learn but it should be soon so I can make it at uni or I may just have to visit home everytime my mum makes it! Though at the moment we have no curry powder so we cant make ANY curry and we have no roti! What a brilliant combination!
I dont even know a roti/curry place in London and I'm sure there are quite a few- it is London after all! I know a magazine called Taste the Caribbean from a friend- it has locations of restaurants and stuff so it may have something in there. Not sure if I cant post the link but its the European website!
