This is what I do weekends. I prepare food for the week and weeks ahead. I am a firm believer of cooking ahead to freeze. It makes life a lot easier. Less stress is best.
So. What do I cook? Simple dishes that's for sure. These are for my partner's meals from Monday to Friday.
First up. My favorite meat with carrots, onions and potatoes.
Next, meat with leeks, carrots and mushrooms.
How about some plum sauce meatballs? First, I made the meatballs. By way of baking.
Then make the sauce and stuff.
Then I pack them in individual clip lock glass containers.
Once cooled, I put them in the freezer.
I also made some mini meatloaves.
Put the minced meat into the containers.
Top with bacon!
So now I have 14 portions of food in the freezer which is good for 2 weeks and 4 days. For the following weekends, I only need to cook another 5 portions to top up my stock.
If I get lazy, I can take a break for one weekend or even two. Once my stocks are exhausted, I start from scratch again.
