In this current economic crisis, here at The Daily Tripe we like to think that we are looking after you, the reader, and putting YOUR interests first.
With that in mind, we have decided to write an occasional series highlighting 'Thrifty Tips' patronisingly showing you how to save money, often with disastrous effects.
The first in the series shows how to eat for less than a quid.
Last night I was in a leading brand of supermarket, and in the reduced section was a pack of 24 bread rolls for the knock down price of 25p, which I bought.
When I got home, I had a bit of a root around the cupboards, to see what I could knock up using the aforementioned rolls.
Well you wouldn't believe what I found, I didn't!!
At the back of the fridge, on the top shelf was some cheese.
Well I think it was cheese, it was a bit old and had some mould on it like that fancy gorgonbazola stuff you get, but I'm pretty sure it started out in life as cheddar.
Anyway, in the bottom of the fridge were some squishy tomatoes.
Being 'on the turn' they needed using up.
So I mashed up the tomatoes and spread them onto a couple of the stale bread rolls (which I cut in half first).
On top of this I grated the cheddar / gorgostiltzola type cheese combo and added a couple of manky olives I found in the bottom of a jar languishing in their own juices.
Bunged it under the grill and voila! Thriftty Pizza.
I also rubbed an onion over another cut roll, and dabbed a bit of red sauce on top before grilling.
I've seen this on a Ramsey programme, Bruchetta I think he called it........................
