Weekends mean more shopping, cooking, baking - and there are always teenagers, hungry partners and friends who might want a snack. Ready-meals, takeaways and fast food are fine on the odd occasion, but especially in these purse-stretched times families need tasty and healthy meals. In this practical cookbook, Mary Gwynn shows the working mum what foods to buy that will last the week and how to have delicious, easy-to-make and nutritious meals ready in a trice with no wastage.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Little Brother, Cory Doctorow, comes Pirate Cinema, a new tale of a brilliant hacker runaway who finds himself standing up to tyranny. Trent McCauley is sixteen, brilliant, and obsessed with one thing: making movies on his computer by reassembling footage from popular films he downloads from the net. In the dystopian near-future Britain where Trent is growing up, this is more illegal than ever; the punishment for being caught three times is that your entire household's access to the internet is cut off for a year, with no appeal. Trent's too clever for that too happen. Except it does, and it nearly destroys his family. Shamed and shattered, Trent runs away to London, where he slowly learns the ways of staying alive on the streets. This brings him in touch with a demimonde of artists and activists who are trying to fight a new bill that will criminalize even more harmless internet creativity, making felons of millions of British citizens at a stroke. Things look bad. Parliament is in power of a few wealthy media conglomerates. But the powers-that-be haven't entirely reckoned with the power of a gripping movie to change people's minds....

Thrifty Recipes and 7-Day Meal Plans to Help You Save Money and Time
Author: Helen Barker-Benfield
Publisher: Ebury Press
The Good Food Family Meal Planner will help you to save time and money and reduce waste - three of our biggest and most timely concerns. Most cookbooks are arranged around type of dish or ingredient, but this book is structured around 5 types of meal which will give you 7 days' worth of dishes. The first chapter covers batch meals, which will provide you with enough food for another day. Chapter 2 is full of speedy weekday supper recipes - quick-and-easy meals that can be made in under 20 minutes, but also include a significant leftover ingredient that will form the basis of the next day's meal. Budget suppers use a smaller number of ingredients, while storecupboard and freezer meals are based on ingredients that you should have handy - meals you can create on short notice. Weekend feasts are more leisurely recipes, including ideas for entertaining, while the final chapter will offer over 25 seven-day meal plans based on the recipes in this book. And even if you don't follow a meal planner in its entirety, you can choose which meal is most appropriate for your needs. Also included within each chapter are handy features on freezing and defrosting, creating a storecupboard of essential ingredients, making the most of seasonal flavours and recipes for breads, stocks and sauces. This is the cookbook that every family needs, one that you will turn to week after week.
