|Mushroom, onion, chopped bacon pieces, tomatoes and some cheese.|
By one o’clcok today we had cleaned the entire house, all the washing is done, on the line and drying outside and I had cooked: 2 quiches, 2 portions of chicken casserole, 2 sticky tea soaked fruit cake, 5 portions of soup for my lunch all week and 3 fish pies. They are all cooling ready for freezing.
|All my cooking is a bit wonky, tasty but wonky.|
We had half a little quiche for lunch today and the big one will be divided into 5, wrapped in foil, frozen, ready for Dearly Beloved to take a piece out of the freezer and stick in his ruck sack to take to work every day.
|I never see the point of making one fiddly little pie but might as well fill the oven up and save the energy costs.|
I used up half a bag of smoked fish and the other four pieces of salmon Ihad in the fridge, made some cheese sauce, mashed some potatoes and with a bit of topping of grated cheese and a few almost gone soft tomatoes have three ‘ready meals’ in the freezer for the nights I get home late or just don’t want to cook.
|We’ll never eat this lot in one go, so I pour it into freezer pots and freeze it until we want it.|
The chicken casserole is simply four chicken breasts cut up, the end of the celery chopped into pieces, a few mushrooms, four large carrots all stirred together with a sachet of Tesco Chicken casserole mix with the required amount of water.
I made double the amount and will freeze it into two portions, again ready to reheat in the microwave on the late nights when I get home from work. After 12 hours out of the door each day, some days I just want to come home, eat, have a wash and get into bed!
|3 fish pies, 2 quiches, 2 chicken casseroles, two sticky fruit cakes, 5 portions of lentil and veggie soup|
Here is everything cooling down in readiness to be wrapped an put in the freezer. The second of my cake has fallen a bit in the middle but I will just tell DB to shut his eyes when he eats it! One cake will go in the tin for Dearly Beloved to take a piece to work every day and one will be wrapped and put in the freezer for next week.
I’ll leave the veggie and lentil soup to cook all day and blitz it with the hand blender later before decanting it into five individual portions to take to work. A little bit of work today makes my working week so much easier to cope with.
