Firstly, welcome to Helen Eggleshaw via Bloglovin. Thank you for joining the Frugal in Norfolk tribe!
We have spent the months since the New Year, creating meals out of the freezer and cupboards, as well as eating some of the home made freezer meals. It has gone well and now is the time to not only carry on using up older meals but to create new ones.
Last week we had tomatillo chicken for tea and enough to freeze 2 foil containers for later use. This week, I made 1.5 batches of low calorie macaroni cheese. We had this one between us for tea with some peas:
Tonight, I shall be making chicken and chickpea curry. Some will be had for tea, the rest frozen into as many containers as possible. Then later this week, it will be vegetable chilli where the same process will happen. From that little amount of batch cooking, we should have enough meals for us both for another week or 10 days.
This can be done with all manner of things, stews, casseroles, chilli, curry, spaghetti bolognaise, cottage pie, fish pie etc.
On a slightly different theme, when our Grand dogs were here last weekend, I picked the few daffodils that were growing outside the back door so they didn't get trampled when they go out to the loo. The daffodils lasted for 5 days in this little glass jar - which the neighbours threw out and I got it for just such an occasion!
