Grilled frankfurters (not something we'd usually buy but I won a pack so not going to say no to free food! ) with bacon, egg & fried baked potato (I cooked an extra one yesterday!)

Today, I slow cooked chicken thighs and drumsticks in a jerk marinade with several sticks of sliced celery, 3 peeled chopped fresh tomatoes and some slightly limp spring onions.
Served with rice, it does us both for dinner, plus a lunch for bloke tomorrow (as he always does - no shop bought lunches for him!)

I am craving a roast but that would mean going shopping and I really need to eat from the freezer so I can defrost it... so....

possibly fish finger sandwiches and garlic bread for snacking on later

We are desperately trying to empty the freezer at the minute, but seem to be getting nowhere fast (I'm sure things multiply in there )

Last night DH had king prawn linguine and I had chicken wrapped in bacon with roasted parsnips and carrots.
Tonight DH will have a ready meal from the freezer and I will have leftover chicken in a risotto with green vegetables.

Massaman beef cury with rice and naan bread. Had a visitor so had to get some pitta breads and wraps out of the freezer to make it go a bit further. And some poppadums with chutney.

Hi all, can I join you?

Tonight i've tried to jazz up some weight w@tchers sausages found in the freezer by doing a spicy casserole. serving it with some frozen steamed veggies and mash.
I'm also trying to de-clutter freezer for xmas, and in the long term so that I can start batch cooking and freezing meals.

I've got a mr T frozen 'Simply cook' joint of gammon to use up - any suggestions that aren't the usual 'gammon egg and chips'? want to try something new...

I just had hm chicken and mushroom soup - since sunday have managed to stretch a small chicken for a roast, chicken and prawn thai green curry (for 4), and now soup for me.

I ate all the soup oops- so made DH and the kids hm pizza using naam bread.

When I cook a gammon (1kg)- it is usually in the SC, and one day will have it with herb potatoes and veg; the next day we will have gammon, peas, and rice, with sweet chilli sauce, and the third day, there should be enough to do a sweet chilli sauce stirfry with gammon, stirfried veg - anything I have in the freeze really - carrots/peas/broccoli/beans/peppers/onions/mushrooms etc, and a packet of cheap noodles. The last dish, doesn't look great on the plate, but is absolutely gorgeous.

We like to stretch a piece of meat in this house!
2013, was the year that my saving account was depleted - £11,200, on a car, holiday and loan to my mum,
so 2014 is the year I SAVE for the future - Aim £6,000 - £70.00/£6,000

Too much YS meat to use up so just having it in buns for the next few days rather than meals as such...lovely ham or pork. On it's own or with other things. I suppose I could do some meals like ham, eggs, mushrooms and chips. Or a ham salad...
