Whats in my Freezer

Whats in your freezer? Do you waste too much food? Food that is actually perfectly fine to eat and could be frozen for longer life. We used to cook meals and any left overs we would just thrown in the bin when washing up. However I decided about  a year ago that any left over food was to go in the freezer and be used for lunches or dinners. Depending on the amount of what is left over depends on if it is used for an evening meal or lunch. I would say that 95% of the meals we cook are perfectly fine to be frozen and kept rather than throwing the food away. If one day the other half is late coming home or he needs to take lunch into work, its very easy to just pop to the freezer and get something.

I also cook a lot of meals for Bubs and then freeze them, this saves me so much time. The sort of things I cook for him to freeze are… casseroles, soups, pasta meals, very mild currys, fish pie and many more meals that he loves. This is so easy to do I always use these plastic trays to freeze the food in.

The only ready meals we have in our freezer are the Slimming World ones. these are for a grab and go if were really busy or don’t have much time. Rather than going to the cupboard and getting chocolate or crisps I always know there is a fail safe Slimming World meal waiting for me.

Having a freezer isn’t just for sticking in ready meals, nuggets, frozen chips etc. It is so much more as mentioned above. I actually buy a lot of my fruit fresh however when certain types is out of season I buy frozen fruit, also love my frozen fruit in a smoothie.

There are so many different types of freezer you can buy to suit your needs, Chest Freezers, free standing freezer, Fridge-Freezer, undercounted and table top. Whatever your needs and what ever you living place there is a freezer to fit all types. We have a fridge-freezer with a really big fridge and 3 draws in the freezer. Tesco have a massive range of freezers to chose from at very reasonable prices, if you are thinking of maybe buying one or getting.

    I have a lot of meat in my freezer as it’s easy just to pull some out the day before I’m planning on making it. I don’t d ready meals but do have some pizzas for quick dinners and a few things for the boys such as sausages and burgers.
    I don’t really waste food as Joseph eats what we do so I usually stick everything into the blender and freeze into pots for him

      yeah we always buy our meat in bulk from the butchers and freeze it. The only ready meals we ever have are the Slimming world ones as we both on (or supposed to be on) S;slimming World ha ha. xx

    Didn’t know Tesco did freezers. We have a lot of meals in the freezer for when one of us is out and the other needs something quick. We have mince dishes when hubby is away as he doesn’t like it – I make a big vat and then freeze it in mealsize portions.

      I love doing this as you say its so easy when one person is maybe late in or if you need something quick xx

    Our freezer is an array of plastic bags with unidentifiable frozen things. Defrosting is always a surprise but not necessarily a good one!

    I didn’t realise Tesco did freezers! I did have a phase of trying to freeze meals but they never appealed to me after freezing, I always think they’re watery afterwards. I do freeze meat a lot though as I never use it in time!

      yeah were the same with meat. i know what you mean about them going a bit watery too. Ive found it depends what you’ve frozen as to if its watery or not. Some meals go a bit dry so i add a bit of water when heating up. xx

    We have an undercounter freezer which is fab as its separate from the fridge it had lots of space. I tend to freeze meat especially when our local Tesco has it reduced as I can stock up, portion it out and then just defrost what I need when I need it.

    I got a chest freezer years ago and I love it. I keep my frozen meats, etc. in the deep freezer and ready to eat meals and ice cream in my refrigerator’s freezer. I love it!
