    zafiro1984, when I used to have lots of frozen leftovers (usually a single portion) I would take two different ones out & then add appropriate carbohydrates & lots of frozen veg. DH & I never seem to have a problem deciding who wants what Re small amounts of leftovers e.g. a spoonful of mash, some lo cooked veg, a couple of sausages - I usually bung everything in a frying pan (chop the sausages) & dry fry - hey presto a type of bubble & squeak - if not enough for two, I will add a couple of fried eggs.

    Donít know if this is any use ?

    Hi from France,

    Trying to empty DSisís freezer & get her on the LFHW bandwagon

    Monday nightís dinner was three different meals for 4 people - Nephew finished the lo pork from Sundayís roast dinner with chips from freezer & peas. DSis had a heated up Cornish Pasty (that DH brought from England as travel food but didnít eat) with the lo boiled potatoes (from Sunday) which she fried. DH & I had battered fish (from freezer) with chips & peas.

    Tuesdayís dinner was pasta bolognese - using 2 packets of mince from the freezer, finishing off a jar of dried mushrooms & also finishing off a jar of bolognese spices & using two jars of tomato passata. Four jars duly washed & recycled.

    Freezer diving for tomorrow as well

    LFHW

    Wednesday's dinner for four :-

    2 steaks from freezer & 2 steaks bought in the a.m., all the potatoes peeled & mashed, & 3 more tins of vegetables used from the shelf. Trying to empty freezer & shelves so no food to be taken to England or binned

    Tonight spaghetti bolognese again!

    Morning chums as I am stuck at home for a couple of days I used my time productively and made a big pot of bendy carrot and coriander soup yesterday (even though the temperature outside was boiling ) and also made some melting moments biscuits .I may make some scones this morning as I still cannot go out in the hot sun just yet because of my poor arm.
    Glad to see everyone is still hanging onto their pennies and using up odds and ends I had a chicken curry from the freezer last night and tonight its going to be a small bit of steak and salad for dinner.
    Starting to get a bit of wriggle room in there at last

    JackieO, glad the antibiotics are finally working

    Friday's Dinner was frozen chips with ham for DH & DSis - I just had chips
    Saturday we had boiled new potatoes, fried tomatoes, haricot beans & the smallest lamb chops I have ever seen However they were very tasty.

    DSis has just cooked roast lamb & roast potatoes with a bag of stir fry veg & very tasty it was too especially the roasties Loads of lamb leftover so my DSis will be having lots over the next few days Lamb is always the last choice of a roast meat for DH & I - he loves pork with crackling of course & I love beef. Rarely have roast chicken as I prefer making meals with thighs or breasts of chicken

    With the weather so hot, we have been having croissants or pain au raisin for breakfast, no lunch & then dinner. However DSis & I are drinking enough tea to sink a battleship & DH is drinking enough coffee to sink his own battleship Using up leftovers is not going well nor can we freeze them as trying to empty freezer (it also needs to be sold ) Literally everything must go including the bed DH & I are sleeping on

    Any unused tinned food will be donated to DNeph

    I will revert to being a Love Food, Hate Waster when I am back in my own kitchen & cooking everything from scratch with a fluid weekly menu plan - my DSis tends to go for convenience freezer food as she really dislikes cooking & even more so when there is just her to cook for

    Enough whingeing from me
