February Blues cured with Leek and Potato Soup!

I really don't know what it is about February but I always seem to get the money saving blues.  I have no idea why, I think it's just the post Christmas slump and the realisation that no matter what new years targets I have set, things get in the way and ruin my plans!

I find that the small things keep me motivated in February.  Today, I have spent a little time batch cooking, preparing a big pan of leek and potato soup which I have made in the past and you can see the recipe on my previous blog post HERE.

Not happy with that I had been given to review some batch cooking containers so I put together my fave courgette and ricotta lasagna which I have also mentioned in another post!  Take a look HERE.

I have also been trying to do a bit of de-cluttering too, selling a few bits and bobs on ebay to clear out the cupboards.

Together with some small over-payments on the mortgage and a few pounds into savings this is seeing me through February and hopefully this will pass by March.


  1. I felt like that too last month, I think it's just that time of year and the weather doesn't help the mood, hope the rest of the month is better for you x
