Why we love July/August Get your Summer Sorted Whitby’s Lynda Attridge helps us showcase the great-value ideas that will help you to live well for less during the summer months. It’s that time of the year again: the sun’s up, school’s out… and the kids want to know what’s for lunch! No wonder the summer can sometimes feel like hard work – you’ve got to keep the family fed, fit and happy but without spending lots more. But, as Lynda Attridge knows, it can be done… Summer’s always a busy time for Lynda, a colleague in the Yorkshire Problem: Teenagers like Jay want variety – sandwiches for lunch everyday just won’t cut it. Sorted: Cook a dinner tonight that makes a deliciously different lunch tomorrow! Lynda’s a big fan of her slow cooker. “I put in all the ingredients before I go to work and the meal’s more or less ready when I get home. The whole family loves a chicken cooked this way with lemons, or joints of pork with barbecue seasoning to make pulled pork. There are always plenty of leftovers that are brilliant with pasta or jacket potatoes.” No slow cooker? Then slow roast joints in the oven for a few hours. It’s a great way to make the most of less expensive but tasty cuts. WHY NOT TRY? Frozen bananas. Great on their own, they’re even better dipped into melted chocolate, rolled in chopped nuts or sprinkles, and then frozen. Five offers that can help you live well for less this summer... 08 Journal seaside town of Whitby. “For us, July and August can be just as busy as Christmas!” she says.
