Way back when I first started this blog I did a little post about frozen dinners. Not of a promotional nature or commercial kind, more of a do it yourself kind. I thought it was high time I revisited this idea with an impending arrival on his way and due any day now. Being organised with ready made meals is one of the things everyone has been saying to me is a must do for the first month or so of having a newborn baby in the house. I am very fortunate to have family nearby to help out, a partner who is great in the kitchen and in particular my Mum nearby (Lady Red Specs of Please Pass The Recipe) so I’m sure we won’t ever go starving. There will be times however when it’s my turn to be at the stove and an egg on toast may not cut it.
I’m a firm believer that homemade is best and loath to resort to pre-manufactured anything unless I have to so making more than is needed for a meal so that I freeze the left overs is a well formed habit. For anyone that finds themselves too busy to cook on a week night and resorting to too much takeaway or cheese on toast these meals will make taking care of yourself easy, and far cheaper than relying on the freezer aisle of your local supermarket. Some do require a little last minute preparation, but with a bit of organisation and a day in the kitchen once in a while you can have yourself set up well and have both yourself and your wallet all the healthier for it.
This is just a selection of what is now in my freezer, and I’ll be definately turning to fresh meals as summer arrives, but if you have any idea’s for us going into the spring month’s I’d love some more suggestions for quick and easy to prepare meals, just drop me a note below in the comments section.
