For all of those bonafide Christmas-celebrators, December is a cruel, expensive month of the year.
Spending your hard-earned wages on buying gifts and socialising, it's a tough time for most of us. So, saving cash along the way is always a bonus. But, there are limits...
Behold the £2 ($3) Christmas dinner. It's a meal that would transform a joyous day of over-indulgence into a depressingly basic endurance test.
Created by youth website Student Beans, the meal assembles some simple essentials and only requires a toaster and a microwave.
The full ingredients:
1 x pack of wafer thin sliced turkey
1 x pack of potato waffles
1 x bag of mixed frozen veg
1 x pack of stuffing mix
1 x jar of own brand gravy granules
1 x pack of cocktail sausages
1 x pack of sliced ham
If you feel like truly punishing yourself then the recipe can be found here. Think we'll stick to our goose fat roast potatoes...
