    In the kitchen, time and money can often be at odds. We can save money by cooking at home instead of eating out. Or we can save time by eating out (or getting take out) instead of cooking. But is it possible to have both; to make healthy, economical meals that take very little time to prepare? Many cookbooks claim this is possible, with words like “fast”, “easy” and “time saving” in their titles. I picked up one of these recently, enticed by “Quick Cooking” and, of course, restaurant-quality photos on the cover. Yet when I perused the recipes, each had at least a dozen or more ingredients.

    There are many old sayings, old adages and old wives’ tales in the British Isles that have weathered the test of time and ultimately hold true. One man’s meat is another man’s poison is a good example.
