An abundance of potatoes, celery and carrots? I have plenty of herbs and spices, chicken, fish, mince, lentils as well as chopped tomatoes, pasta etc. Thanks

Or boil the potatoes and freeze them to roast at a later date, or mash and freeze the mash.
Slice up the veg and freeze it if you don't want to use it now.
Make a shepherds/cottage pie using your mince with mash on top and carrots and celery in it. You can also make a chicken pie with a creamy sauce and top with mash potato.

We've had frittata today with potatoes & chorizo. Uses up a fair amount & can adjust the filling depending on taste & what you have available.

Chicken in a white sauce with mushrooms/spinach/peas into a deep dish and top with thinly sliced potatoes (as if for dauphinois) cover with foil and bake. Remove foil so potatoes can crisp if liked, perhaps with some dabs of butter. Make sure there is plenty of liquid so the potatoes cook through.

Chop celery & carrots, wrap in a foil parcel with a knob of butter, pop in the oven to bake for about 40 to 50 minutes when cooking a roast or casserole. A really simple side dish, with no pan to wash up!

Make potato & carrot stoemp. You could have with sausages or bacon or add grated cheese to have as a complete dish.

Make gnocchi to go with a pasta style sauce, children are good helpers for this.

Potato salad.
