3 money saving tips for the kitchen
Firstly, always check to see what you have in your cupboards and fridge/freezer before you go shopping. This way, you don’t end up just adding more of what you already have because if you don’t use them up in time, they may go past their use by date.
Secondly, and this is from personal experience, do some meal planning. Decide, maybe a week in advance, what you’d like to eat as a family for the coming week. After you create that list, make a list for the ingredients you’ll need and shop for those.
Lastly, reduce your food wastage by dishing up any leftover portions of food and then freezing or refrigerating it to be used at a later day for lunch or for a meal later in the week. Come of your kitchen waste can also be placed into a compost bin outside. You’ll have good quality compost for your garden from things such as raw vegetable peelings, egg shells, newspapers and tea bags.
An expensive item you can’t live without in the kitchen and why?
What is your favourite recipe?
We have many. If we had to choose, it would be this Jerk Marinade as it can be made as the basis for any meat and vegetables for a barbecue. You can make it as spicy or as mild as you want, and it can also be bottled and refrigerated until you are ready to use it. Man, it will make you feel like you’re sitting on the beach in Jamaica, listening to the sounds of the Reggae beat.
What is your favourite kitchen gadget?
Who or what inspired you to cook?
