Brrr – it’s really starting to get chilly out there. I’ve had the slow cooker out for the past week which I love because it’s such an easy way to cook, and it makes my freezing cold kitchen feel cosy. BUT I’m starting to run out of hearty meal ideas for my hungry tribe. With a husband who works an uber-physical job and 2 growing boys, I need filling yet budget-friendly meals ideas.
So when I put a call out to some of my blogging buddies (most of whom are enjoying balmy summer days right now – I’m not jealous:-)) to share their best budget-friendly winter warmer recipes to warm the cockles for us poor sods in the antipodes, I was overwhelmed with some fantastic winter recipe ideas.
I’m excited to bring you these 15 delicious, winter-warmer meal ideas. Some are vegetarian, some aren’t. All look delicious, easy to make and kid-friendly.
