Making your meals go further on a budget and using leftovers

Adding bread, rice and leftover vegetables to mince to make huge lasagnes, meat loaves, meatballs, meat or vege patties is a great economical as well as preventing food waste idea. I just mix it all in together with some seasoning and pasta sauce. Can freeze individual portions in freezer for work lunches as well. Also with muffins, leftover grated fruit or veg, leftover cream, instant pudding, fruit juices etc all can be added to make tasty muffins. I’ve had a big family and have lived this way for a long time to feed people nourishing, filling and economical meals. Any scraps go to our hens.
