Credit Crunch Munch June

I’m guest hosting another blogging challenge this month. This one is Credit Crunch Munch run by Helen at Fuss Free Flavours and Camilla at Fab Food 4 All. The aim of this challenge is simple, share a recipe from your blog that’s made with cheap ingredients. There’s loads of home grown fruit and veg in season this time of year and that often means that it’s a bit cheaper e.g. in the UK we have strawberries, rhubarb, broad beans, broccoli, watercress, new potatoes and salad leaves are all at their best now. There are also several types of fish in season now too such as sardine, shrimps and plaice. If you’re cooking with seasonal ingredients then you could share your post with Simple & in Season and if you’re making a cheaper meal that includes an extra portion of veg then why not link up with the Extra Veg challenge as well. Finally if you’re using up leftovers then join in with No Waste Food Challenge. If you really want a challenge then try and create one recipe to fit in with all the above!
