I cooked £3.85 worth of braising steak with some root vegetables in a (Bisto) gravy yesterday in the slow cooker in the morning. When it was cool I divided it into two. One serving with dumplings (with a touch of sage added) yesterday and today I will add 4 oz of mushrooms and a pie crust. Both meals with fresh veg - probably no more than £5 spent on both meals. £2.50 per meal for both of us.
Both meals were filling and warm - just what was needed on this rather windy and cold spell.
