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.
