    The meal prepping thread 14th Jun 19 at 11:58 AM

    I couldn't see that a thread already exists for meal prepping yet, so thought i'd make one!

    This will be an opportunity for people to post recipes and pictures of your meal preps, and ask for inspiration or anything related to meal prepping.

    Meal prepping is a great way of making sure that you eat well, if you maybe don't have the time or energy to cook every day. I also believe that it is a great way of making sure you don't waste anything, as I buy all my ingredients and then cook with it right away!

    Came across a website which was recommended by someone elsewhere (but can't remember where!) called The Batch Lady. Haven't used it yet but have had a look and looks quite good.

    May give the batch cooking a go after my holiday when I've got a bit of time.

    The Batch Lady has a pretty good youtube channel too and she's from the UK so all the ingredients are familiar.

    I use my slow cooker to do a lot of batch cooking, but you could easily use a pan on the hob.
    My list for batch cooking.

    Shepherds/Cottage pies
    Beef casserole
    Chicken casserole
    Sliced potatoes,onions and corned beef. very tasty.

    I also make my filling for pies in the slow cooker, i don't care for
    bought pies. I trim every little bit of fat off the meat. If anyone comes and i bake a pie,they always say they know can eat it without worrying about any fat.

    Steak and onion
    Steak and mushroom
    Chicken and leek
    Chicken and mushroom
    Chicken and ham
    Corned beef and onion

    I'm trying to make some room in both freezers to get some batch cooking in.
