    Eating out of the freezer and cupboards challenge - part two

    Eating out of the freezer and cupboards challenge - part two 21st Oct 13 at 8:17 AM
    As the previous thread here had got very long, this is a new one for a continuation of the discussion.

    From the original first post of the previous thread:

    OK my freezer and stock cupboards are crammed full. I realise have spent a lot of money in the food in there. I want to save money by using these and only buy:
    . Milk
    . Fruit/Veg
    . Bread
    . Yoghurt
    . Breakfast cereal (only have 2 unopened packets)
    . Sandwich fillings (have one pack of ham in the freezer)

    as these things I eat virtually every day

    Until one of the following happens
    . I ran out of food
    . I have only fish fingers and cornflakes left.

    It will be a challenge as I'm on weight watchers so I have to be extra creative to keep my points down.

    Pack of casserole veg, now turned into soup, some freezer honey parsnips turned into soup and I have a 20p pkt of parsnips and carrots to make soups later in the week, some for freezer. Had a portion hake from freezer for dinner last night and am having 2 faggots tonight. While oven on am making an orange cake to take to dd tomorrow as I have been invited for Easter lamb dinner, may make an Easter rocky road bar (from Asda em today) as s-in-l is chocoholic, and have taken 2 pkts sausages out to cook in oven whilst it is on, will then parcel in x 2's and return some to freezer, I can then get out a portion when wanted. Some-one on here said to portion frozen chips into portions, I did that and ditto with the parsnips, so much easier to grab and go so thank you x do not know why I had not thought of that when I do with sausages !!

    I did a vegan Christmas, so have little bit of this and lots of that left over. Bought a big tub of Hummus a few days ago as part of my new healthier drive (my blender blew up, see vegan christmas above), not realising can't freeze it. so, adapting a recipe found online, done a very yummy gluten free loaf with leftover gram flour, hummus, peanut butter instead of tahini and chopped pecans instead of sunflower seeds.

    Tonight will be stirfrying a leftover bag of lettuce to top with fish from freezer got on easter specials
    Fact: i am a carnivore, but i love my friends, so cook what they can eat

    I am vegan and regularly buy the hummus from Lidl when it is marked down to 20p a tub. In fact I got a caramelised onion one out and had it for lunch today with toast. Sometimes it needs a bit of a stir, but ignore the do not freeze bit, believe me!

    I make hummus with cauliflower, I eat low carb, and find it freezes excellently.
