I think there will be a fair lot left over but some things are getting very close to their use by...
I have about 300g cooked pork shoulder - needs to be eaten up. 400g raw mince - use by 16th 1packet of sausages - use by 16th a scrap of bacon (1 sandwich worth?) 200g cheese (will keep) 9 eggs (will keep) Carrots, potatoes, cabbage, leeks and half a cauliflower, plus frozen veg in freezer Various dry pasta and rice
I just cannot think to organise myself to cook the food that needs cooking. There is only me and two children, so we eat as a family and they don't do spicy. Any ideas?
Mince, spuds, carrots - cottage pie? Maybe make a carbonara type thing with the bacon, cheese and eggs (I've never made one so don't take my word for it!) Sausages with potato wedges and stirfried cabbage/leeks
I'm assuming it's just dinners you need...those are my random suggestions.
In our house, that would be enough mince to just about do two dinners for 3 (assuming your 2 dcs aren't enormous teenage boys?!).
So I would second the cottage pie (served with boiled cabbage?) suggestion and suggest maybe homemade burgers (with cheese) if you have an onion (although, you could do it without too, I think). Potato wedges to go with.
I'm not sure I've ever seen cooked pork shoulder (we only really do bacon from pigs in our house ), but assuming it's basically a meat you could cut into chunks, could you make a casserole type thing with the leeks, carrots, potatoes all chopped up and a tin of tomatoes and whatever herbs you have (fennel seeds always a hit here).
Make a cauliflower and pasta cheese thing, and serve with sausages.
You could use eggs for omelette with any leftover bits of meat and veg chopped up and cooked through first.
Make Toad in the hole with the sausages and eggs and serve with mashed potato and cauliflower cheese, or roast potato.
Make spag bol with all the mince and then freeze half of it (cooked) for use in an emergency and serve the other half with spaghetti or pasta and grated cheese.
Make a stir fry with finely sliced carrots, cabbage and leek and cut up the pork shoulder and add to this. Make a nice sauce for it using corn-flour, soy sauce and stock and garlic and ginger, and add some honey too. Serve it with plain cooked rice.
Cook the bacon and have it with an omelette for lunch.
or cube the pork and make home-made pork nuggets using a batter of flour and cold water and shallow frying them. Make some tempura cauliflower while you're at it and serve with rice cooked with grated carrots and peas and ketchup.
meatballs with mince (do you have tinned tomatoes and herbs/spices to make a sauce - use carrots and leeks in this as well chopped finely?) and serve with rice or pasta. freeze leftover meatballs and sauce
cauliflower cheese (make it with lots of sauce) served with pasta
baked potatoes, sausages, leeks cooked in butter
bacon, cheese, leek and potato frittata/tortilla/omelette type thing
