bridget107, Apr 1, 11:28pm
I found a good magazine the other night with some excellent ideas for some cheap, time-saving meals. One of them which was really delicious was beef and vegetable pie http://aftertasteblog.wordpress.com/2012/04/02/beef-and-vegetable-pie/ . Anyone got any other good ideas!

Looks yum apart from the mixed vegetables. I picked up a book from Mad Butcher & it has good recipes.
