I am in the process of stocking my freezer. So far I have done potato & leek soup, cottage pie and minestrone soup. I am also going to do chicken & corn soup, pea & ham soup, dahl and just a bunch of casseroles and stuff. Luckily I am getting a winter bub so slow cooker meals will go down a treat.
Well I'm going on mat leave after 31/5 so probably then. Or if I get the energy maybe ill start doing some things during may!
I also marinaded portions of chicken/meat and froze them in the marinade in ziplock bags then you can just defrost through the day, throw in the oven and have with a bag salad or homemade salad/steamed veges for the nights when you want something a bit lighter (chicken breasts, thighs, drumsticks etc).
Don't forget lunches!
Try a loaf of bread, make sandwiches, buttered on the wrong sides with ham and cheese filling or similar then restack into the bread bag and freeze.
Voila- grab one out, throw in the Toastie machine and you have an easy instant lunch.
Also quiches, curries, beef stroganoff, chicken wings marinated ready to bake, potato bake, lasagne, what about curried mince or chilli beef mince you can make into mince on toast, tacos, nachos, spag Bol etc.
Good good good! I was thinking zucchini slice too & all the soup I make will be for my lunches. Thanks everyone. Now I need to clear the freezer!!!
EVERY TIME someone mentions potato bacon leek soup i MUST cook it!
Bring on lunch tomorrow, i'll be cooking up a storm in the morning.
