Just started Midwifery degree and will never have time to feed my family properly again. I thought I would do some batch cooking this weekend but my list has not progressed beyond spag bol and chicken curry. Help!

Lasagne (bolognese or tuna and veg in tomato sauce)
Spaghetti bolognese sauce
Sausage with beans or veg and gravy, topped with mash.
Beef stew/stroganoff
Hot pot

And what Nicola said!!

I am sure there are more I do but will have to have a look in the freezer.

Steak & mushroom pie.

Chicken & ham pie.

Sausage cassoulet.


Chicken stew.

You can also make fruit crumbles, pies, whip double cream and freeze that.

I know there is more I do but I can't think at the minute.

You could do a mahoosive steak & onion and mushroom casserole (or whatever type your family like), then make different meals for the freezer from it...

Parboiled potatoes on top, hotpot style, ready for oven

In Pastry for steak pies

or just frozen plain in portions ready to be reheated with mash & veg
