Roast Beef Challenge

Like everybody else, I am finding times to be hard. With Earth on Disability and myself on a Carers Pension, stretching the money can be quite difficult. In an effort to learn some frugal tips, I have been researching how women kept house in the thirties, forties and fifties. One thing I discovered is that the humble Sunday roast was generally stretched to to at least three meals. This fascinated me, not least because I cannot remember the last time I was able to afford a roast! So I decided to set myself a challenge. I would splurge on a roast and see just how far I could make it stretch.

I am now off to the butcher to purchase a delicious beef roast.
