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,

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...

Had chicken fajitas with heaps of side salad last night which was so simple but totally and utterly scrumptious

Tonight I'm cooking my favouritest ever dinner (OH and DD3 favourite too!)...

Ginger pork and dauphinoise pototoes

The ginger pork was a recipe I found in a £1.99 recipe book last year and it's now my speciality!! lol

I was super organised last night. Have veg and spuds prepared and pork is marinading, so just need to switch on the cooker/oven when I get home and get the heat going!

Oh I can't wait! Mouth watering

We're having left over HM chicken korma from the freezer - trying to run it down (like a few other people's posts - also seems to be never ending - at this rate it'll be switched off for the whole time we're away at Christmas!)

Still on the ham butties...I refuse to waste the YS meat even if it has gone past the date on the lable. It looks, smells and tastes ok. And is in a fridge that is at the correct temperture.

May do a meal later, ham, baked beans eggs, mushrooms and chips.

May open a can of rice pudding afterwards.

Similar to previous meals I mentioned earlier in the week.

Then perhaps I can do something else over the weekend.

We're having tea at my mum and dad's tonight. :-)

Made a large quantity of meatballs today though, so have some in the fridge for tomorrow's tea and another meal's worth in the freezer.

Have been trying to use the soup up from the freezer so I had a portion for lunch today... and yesterday...

Aubergine sliced length ways, roasted off in the oven, then putting lots of cheese on top of them and finishing them off under the grill served with soya mince done in a pepper and tomato based sauce.

Lots of weird and wonderful meals for the next 2 weeks as I use up what is in the freezer ready for lots of Christmas leftovers lol!

mmmmm chilli..
