Cooking in advance is a very satisfying thing 👍
Each weekend I cook one or two (sometimes more) main dishes in fairly large quantities and freeze most of them in single portion sizes which I can take out for us to enjoy during the week. I also make a ‘store’ of sides by cooking ahead whole grains, potatoes 🥔 , sweet potatoes 🍠 and so forth so they are ready in the fridge for me to select from during the week. Veggies take just minutes to steam or stir-fry so I can easily do them at the last minute.
As I do this every weekend, I store up quite a supply of a variety of portions of different dishes, so we can choose from a nice selection of 'homemade ready meals’ at any one time. Delicious and practical!
