My name is Miki, and I live healthily on a budget, I am not a vegetarian but do have many meat free days, I have a lot of love for beans, pulses, lentils and veg, so you will see many meals posted based around these ingredients. I will also post meat and fish recipes. I spend no more than £30 per week for 2 full time adults, plus my 2 elderly inlaws evening meals (I do meals on wheels for them) and my granddaughter a couple of days a week...I love food especially savory food and curries, but I do have to watch my weight so many of my recipes will be low in fat, with the odd pie thrown in lol.

  1. Enjoyed this tonight with variations I did not have tom puree but had a handful of sad looking cherry tomsAlong with the garlic, ginger, soy, oyster sauce, a pinch of chili flakes, and onion, these where blitzed and made into a sauce. Cooked up chopped capsicum and chicken thighs, added sauce pulped, then used 2 minute noodles. Bluddy fantastic, I think I am back in Thailand on a budget LOL I will re-use this recipe , with acknowledgement to you, on FB Surviving on a PensionCheerspg
