I don’t cook on Mondays or Thursdays. I cook for meals the day before and just microwave the next day. We call it ding cuisine. I’m all for money saving short cuts. We’re almost out of fresh vegetables and didn’t want to shop today so I see frozen mixed veg, a tin of mushy peas and a tin of sweet corn.
The bits in the gravy, if you’re interested, are sage. I used to make gluten free sage and onion stuffing but as we’re eating low carb (following slimming world) I no longer make it. My food processor died and I can’t make bread crumbs without one so we don’t have it any more. The sage in the gravy gives the lunch the flavour of stuffing without the calories.
I always have plenty of tinned and frozen food and use it to pad out our budget and my time budget. If I’m busy, it’s good to have a couple of cooking free nights and a few meals that are much cheaper.
Every now and then, we all need an easier life.
Over to you. Tinned? Frozen? Or a bit of both? Ding cuisine? Cooking free nights? Let me know how you free up a bit of time and get yourself out of the kitchen every now and then?
