    Extra Easy: What do you batch cook ???

    Hi


    After a few months off I'm rejoining next week and am after some meal ideas to batch cook to help when I'm working (I work 12 hour shifts)
    I eat most things so am not overly fussy normally I just eat the same things and always batch cook chilli & bolognaise !!
    Am after some new ideas see what other people batch cook

    Thanks

    Apart from the obvious (chilli, bolognese, curry) the main thing I batch cook is home-made tomato sauce. I add loads of superfree (celery, peppers, carrot, onions etc) chopped very fine, blitz it with a hand blender, then freeze in portion sizes.

    You can do stir fry and do jacket potatoes - I have the same problem I don't work shifts but I'm up and out of my door at 6:50 to work in a nursery I need a substantial lunch and I don't have time to prepare in the morning!!

    Jacket potatoes ready to reheat at work, BBQ pulled pork, chilli, spag bol, curry, pasta bakes. I keep boiled eggs in the fridge sometimes too, for when I'm peckish. I don't do that often though, I'm no good at peeling eggs!

    Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
    Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off of the goal.
    We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.

    I've also just discovered Moroccan chickpea and vegetable stew on the SW site which freezes well. Problem is I don't have a saucepan big enough for the quantities I like to cook! Other than that, I batch cook arrabiata sauce, chilli (popular choice), bolognese, various curries (chickpea and sweet potato is a favourite).

    Also a shift worker, so really rely on frozen homemade meals. Lasagne is good. Really nice with salad!
