I’ve just finished a slice of the dee-lish-us flapjacks I made using some leftover muesli (hadn’t been eaten because it was much too sweet, so ideal for making into free form biscuits), now I can share some great websites and blogs which relate to my current Eat the Pantry project.
Aussie mum Sandra Reynolds quit her job when it got unbearable – and was then faced with the challenge of feeding her family of two teenagers on $120 a fortnight. The result was a brilliant blog, now more of a website, full of tips and ideas – including how to use up store cupboard hoards – which has now resulted in a cook book.
Jack Monroe is the UK equivalent of Sandra – a single mum on benefits she turned the struggle to feed herself and her son wholesome food on a pitiful income into a great blog, full of brilliant ideas.
She’s now something of a media star with a column in the Guardian newspaper and a great cook book.
Having a mooch about on my Twitter feed just now (when I should have been writing something else…) I saw that someone had favourited a tweet of mine with the link to yesterday’s post mentioning the need for Uglygram.
I’m happy I stumbled upon it as it led me to the heaven that is Dimly Lit Meals…
With all respect to Dimly Lit, skip the video at the top until later and scroll down to the pictures. It basically is Uglygram (the pic at the top is one of their’s).
Then we mustn’t forget the joy of Martha Stewart’s hilarious Instagram food shots. This is her tempting shot of a bowl of onion soup… yum!
