We have bought a house!!
We have eaten up everything in the chest freezer a bit early and I now have to do a supermarket shop for the last 2 weeks. I work fulltime with 2 under 2 and money is a bit tight so I am normally a strict batch cooker, buying all meat in bulk from butcher and making meals (during my holiday) that I get out before work and put in oven/slow cooker but we have eaten it all!!!
So what requires v little cooking but won't break the bank
So far I have:
Slow cooker roast chicken and frozen veg Slow cooker roast chicken and pasta
Slow cooker chilli (prepared night before)
Fish fingers and chips
Sausages and mass (although baby is only 11months so want to avoid cheap processed meat if poss)

What else can I buy?

If the kids are eating well at childcare, then I don't see anything wrong with a bit of toast and beans one night.
Other options:
Pasta bake with any scraggly left over bits of meat and veg.
Baked potatoes with tuna mayo/cheese

Congrats on the house purchase! Are you excited to move?

Very! We are not moving far but its from a small rented flat to a house!!! Won't know what to do with ourselves! They have nursery 3 days a week and DP is home the other 2.
Jacket pots are a good shout

Spanish omlette _Frozen roasted med veg (Sainsbury's) with a tin of baby potatoes and some chorizos and 6 beaten eggs, chuck it all in a tin in the oven and bake for 15 mins.
Pasta with garlic and herb fruit philli and smoked salmon trimming stirred through.
