Today was spent mostly at in the kitchen!
I spent all of last night looking for easy recipes for family meals. Healthy food that doesn't take long to cook or that I can prepare in advance, freeze and then defrost and put in the slow cooker on the day.
I cheated and bought pre chopped veg as well. Naughty me!
I found this blog post which was very helpful. I used some of the recipes and adapted others to make them suit a freezer meal. I hope my changes work....... I guess we will see.
I also made up some batches of Cheesy fish pie and some cinnamon beef and potato bake.
Yummy! After all that cooking I made us a Chicken roast dinner and Apple crumble. I am looking forward to trying some new meals and already feel less stressed knowing that I have food for many meals to come and that we will not be tempted to eat the easy junk food..... like chips!
And what were my boys doing while I was busy in the Kitchen?
Well some of this!
And a bit of that.............
and some more of this!!
Being boys.... being kids! What else?
