February’s Credit Crunch Munch + Mermaid Prize

Credit Crunch Munch

This month it is my turn to host Credit Crunch Munch which is a joint challenge being run myself and the lovely Helen at Fuss Free Flavours.

As usual you have free reign over what types of dishes you would like to submit but I noticed last month that there was not a single pudding or dessert entered so I would be very happy to see some of these this month! I also have a husband who every night says “what’s for pudding” so this is purely a selfish request! With this in mind, I have organised a prize for one lucky entrant, which is a Pudding Sleeve from the lovely people at Mermaid!

Mermaid Pudding Sleeve

We want to know how you enjoy great food, but still spend less or save some money. Think about…

  • Meals using leftovers

  • Substitutions of cheaper ingredients
  • Packed lunches
  • Meals that use less energy to cook

  • Slow cooking
  • Faster cooking – less oven time for example
  • Batch cooking for the freezer
  • Sustainable foods
  • Food you have grown yourself
  • Meals from reduced food in the supermarket

    Have just submitted my quesadillas – not a pudding i’m afraid but very cheap and cheerful 😉 You could actually put chocolate spread and chopped bananas in to make it a pudding… but maybe that’s a new blog post!


  2. Rachel K @MarmadukeS

    Ah . . . just realised you would have preferred puddings. And I have a savoury dish. Ooops! (With a bit of imagination, think of it as a pasta pudding!)

    1. Camilla

      Pudding were just a suggestion so don’t fret:-)

  4. Ren Behan

    Hi Camilla, thanks for hosting, looks like it will be another popular round. My recipe can be batch cooked and uses seasonal (cheaper) veg. Ren x

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Ren, I can’t wait!

  5. janet @ the taste space

    I have a feeling I don’t know what pudding is….. (not British here and none of my puddings need a sleeve, just a bowl)… so I submitted something else. 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Pudding just means the same as dessert or can be a steamed pudding and the sleeve is a new invention for making a specific suet based Roly Poly Steamed Pudding or Spotted Dick:-) Any money saving dish can be entered into Credit Crunch Munch so if you have a dessert do feel free to enter that too!

  6. Fuss Free Helen

    Lovely – looking forward to lots of thrift, pudding or not!

  7. Jacqueline @How to be a Gourmand

    On my to do list Camilla 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Fab, I look forward to it!

  8. Janice

    I will see what i can do on the pudding front. My hubby also loves his pudding especially with custard.

    1. Camilla

      Fab, I’m looking forward to this month:-)

  9. Elizabeth

    OOh I like this challenge! I have an idea already 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Great, look forward to it:-)

  10. Jen @ BlueKitchenBakes

    Challenge accepted! I suppose I could have added my apple crumble but I didn’t think of it at the time. The Tea Time Treats challenge for Feb is puddings (I think, better double check) so you might end up with a few suggestions to keep the hubby happy.
