So I’ve been a busy girl this week. I’ve decided to make my own ready meals…just for me, well and the family. I am not branching out lol. But it does save a small fortune and you know what is exactly in them. I am not just talking about the meat content either. I am fast becoming aware that many foods that are prepared, canned or frozen have lots of salt, sugar, and stuff that to be quite honest, well I don’t know what it is.
So this week I am testing out new ideas, and then freezing half so I can be really lazy next month.
Pizza dough is a doddle to make and freezes beautifully; Beef Bourguignonne is another fab one, as are fish pie, shepherds pie, even homemade chicken nuggets. Soup is another great make that freezes well and a great way to up your veg intake. And It’s a lot cheaper too..In the long run.
I don’t expect the world to change overnight…we have got sucked into the easy food market…but just an idea. Can we pull ourselves out…one meal at a time??
Will add some recipe ideas on http://www.thesideplate.com over the next few days.
Would you be interested in a cookbook??
Go on give it a go..You know you want to.
