I've been meaning to ask......I think I'm probably alone in this, but am I the only one who doesn't batch cook main meals?
I don't not do it because I can't be bothered, I'm just not very keen on the taste of something that has been cooked, frozen, and then re-heated? I especially can't abide the taste of re-heated potatoes - bleurgh
With the exception of Shepherdess Pie (minus the mash) Cheese & Lentil Loaf and Onion Tart - which all contain no meat - I cook all my meals from scratch on the day I eat it.
This isn't a dig at those who do - I wish I could, it would make life a lot easier, but to me, meat never tastes right when it's been re-heated. I just wondered if I was alone in this?

My personal circumstances changed dramatically about two months ago (my marriage broke up!)......so my budget to spend on groceries is much less now.
I know I could probably manage on less, but I still have good days and bad days and am not ready to do without the odd glass of wine and bar of chocolate.
