cooked ham – £1.00
where can you get ham for £1?
as in ham made from pig.
says 86% pork.
Would buy better stuff myself from the deli, but if cheapness is the plan well it can be had(food is one thing i dont’ mind spending money on.).Posted 4 years agobrakesMember

I would struggle to stretch that much ham out to 2 days.
mixed in with all the other stuff I mentioned, you could make it last 5 days.Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Grated carrot and houmous in pitta bread. Maybe a hint of chilli sauce as well.
I wouldn’t even feed a prisoner of war crap like that, even as a punishment
Tell you what – a carrot and humous sarnie really hits the spot. I think its one of the best things you can put between two slices of bread and is one of my favourites for lunch on a long ride. Great with crispy bacon in too if its meat-less-ness causes moral offencePosted 4 years agosteve-gMember
I am sure cooking too much of whatever is for dinner then microwaving it at lunch time is both the best and cheapest option.
I go to costco, buy massive amounts of all the ingredients for not much money, today I have used £3 worth of mince, £1 worth of chopped toms, some herbs, worcestershire sauce, and a whole packet of spaghetti from the Nisa 64p, so under £5 worth of stuff, and that will feed me, the wife, both kids, the MIL and there will be a lunch, probably 2 left over. whats that, assuming kids eat half portions, £5/6 so 83p per portionPosted 4 years agomrchrispyMember
if we cook extra it just HAS to go in the bin, or the freezer for a few months, then it goes in the bin. this is because all food goes off immediatly and you will die a horrible horrible food poisoning death. or so my bat s**t crazy wife seems to think!!!
personally I’ll stop eating something if either my eye water when I smell it of it crawls out of the fridge under its own powerPosted 4 years agomeftyMember
Dahl costs very little to make and if you a stock cube or 2 it makes an excellent lunch, probably costs at most 30p a portion if you buy indian spices rather than barts one, add 100g of rice which costs 15p based on tesco 4kg basmati bags and you have a substantial lunch.Posted 4 years agocheers_driveMember
There is some pretty poor food suggested here, even if it is pennies. If you have heating facilities at work for a pound you could easily make large batches of soup / slow cooker meals. Much healthier and tastier.Posted 4 years ago
For the person who mentioned soup not sustaining them for riding, it depends what’s in it – watery consommé no, hearty soup yes.
