    I do muffins and scrolls for lunchboxes, for example carrot and zucchini muffins and pizza scrolls, and when I used to work I used to make a week's worth of sandwiches for the kids and freeze them individually, so each morning I only had to grab one out of the freezer and place into lunchbox! I also use my slow cooker heaps for dinners

    Great ideas @Cicho - what do you put in your sandwiches that you freeze?

    Normally all i do is cut up sandwich stuff (lettuce, tomato, onion) and keep in containers in the fridge so sandwich making is quick and easy.

    Today I have been super organised and boiled some eggs, cooked some rissoles, made a batch of enchiladas, and made a big batch of fried rice.

    I find when I don't do this, i become unorganised very quickly and it is too easy to eat junk.

    Each weekend we make 10 frozen sandwiches so school lunches are covered. I also slow cook a curry or casserole or bolagnaise sauce or lentils or thai veg curry and freeze into meal size containers. I also pre-cook a packet of pasta and rice and have it in big sistema containers in the fridge ready to use. No cooking during the week as I am time-poor and need to have a good meal up in 5-10mins of getting home. Sometimes I bake lunchbox snacks and freeze. If I am really keen I chop salad sticks like celery and carrots, or make a big batch of mashed potato to use over the first few week days. 2 adults 3 children here.

    On Mondays I bake muffins or scrolls, make a loaf's worth of sandwiches, cook chickpeas or kidney beans, and make biscuits or a slice for the weeks lunches. I also cook for all the days I work so 3 meals plus make up a huge green salad for my lunches/dinners and another salad either bean or roasted veg.

    Subscribing!

    I'd love ideas for freezeable sandwich fillings. Would things like ham and cheese be okay to freeze?
