With all the talk of food prices on here it's made me think and I am planning to use up all my food stores then start buying more wisely. Currently I buy stuff on offer and bung it in the freezer without thinking if I need it/will use it soon blush

I'm also intruiged as to how long my current supplies could last! So if I list my freezer/fridge/cupboard contents I'm hoping some meal planning experts will come up with some yummy suggestions to help me stretch things out grin ps it's for myself and 1 4yr old who can eat for England.

Here goes;

Freezer:

400g of lean lamb mince
500g beef mince
pack of ready made flafals
half a bag of frozen chips
220g cooked king prawns
3 mini naans
4 large naans

250ml homemade chicken stock x2
3 holland's pies

Pesto (jar)
Tandori paste
mushrooms
celery
baby corn
mange tout
brocoli
1 x green pepper
mango chutney
mint sauce
200g feta
400g cheddar
150g of St Agur (blue cheese)
1/4 jar lemon curd
jam
pack or ready rolled shortcrust pastry
half block of shortcrust pastry (Sweet)

Cupboards:

8 wraps
2 packets of falafal mix
tikka masala curry sauce
tin chopped toms
tinned salmon
2x tins of rice pudding
morocan tangine sauce
tin corned beef
pudding rice (half bag)
couscous
long grain rice
