Over the weekend I defrosted the remains of a cooked rib of beef , and made two cottage pies for the freezer. I also made a big pot of chicken and vegetable soup for the freezer. I then discovered that both my freezers are so full that I could only fit one of the pies in, and no soup at all.
I always keep the freezers fairly full because they run more cost-effectively, but this is getting silly! So I need to do some serious freezer emptying – there must be enough in there for us to survive for ages, with only minimal shopping required.
This week’s menu plan will be, therefore – “Whatever I Can Find in the Freezer”.
We’ll start tonight with the cottage pie that I couldn’t fit in (although that’s only big enough for two), so I think I’ll get a portion of veg chilli out of the freezer for Ashley, who prefers that to cottage pie.
On another note entirely, yesterday my blog had a record 128 hits in one day (I still can’t believe anybdy finds what I write interesting, and am very flattered). Thank you to all who visit, and especially thank you to everybody who leaves a comment. As I’m sure all you fellow bloggers out there know, it’s just lovely to get comments.
