I started this last week after I mentioned my awesome Facebook friend, suggested the idea. Last week's meals were supposed to be:
Monday - Fish pie (frozen in 'bulk')
Tuesday - Lasagne (frozen in bulk)
Wednesday - Burger or sausage with vegetable cake
Thursday - Potato soup
Friday - Fish & chips, mushy peas
Saturday - whatever DP chooses
Sunday - whatever DP chooses
Yes, that's right, I am very lucky that my awesome husband just happens to love cooking and eating (and eating out) so I only cook because I'm home with IP! :) As such I only started trying to cook when IP was 6 months old. Now we live here I tend to cook recipes for about 6 people, maybe once a month. Freeze and then defrost each portion each week. It works reasonably well. Anddd as I mentioned last week, I am trying to use up the items currently in the freezer and cupboard (and fridge, etc).
So how did we do?
Well, I can't even remember what we ate on Monday but we did eat the lasagne and we ate out on Thursday. We, it turned out, didn't have potato soup left. Then I had also forgotten we had my parents visiting on Friday to Sunday. So we didn't have fish and chips on Friday, DP dealt with meals.
We still have Fish pie to eat.
We have Chilli con carne with rice.
Fish cakes & vegetable cakes.
And I have the ingredients to make a chicken casserole.
What order these things get eaten in is a different matter as we have a fairly busy week in comparison to previous weeks.
Then on Friday I am hosting a coffee morning so I'm hoping to make my mother's 'Crunchy Muesli Tray Bake' which is a bit like flap jack (and involves using cupboard ingredients up so a double bonus).
I will hopefully be able to take some photo's of our fridge, freezer and cupboard at the end of this week as I don't think it'll be long before we have to start planning meals based on war time rations (as per my previous post)...
