Meal plans make shopping for food and cooking meals a whole lot easier and cheaper. This week we are having a couple of regular favourites and some new or unpublished recipes. All meals are less than £1 a serving and suitable for all the family.
Chicken Chow Mein
Pull apart pizza
Chorizo and Mozzarella Ham Burgers
Chorizo and Tomato Spaghetti

This meal costs £1.10 per serving.
