    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
    Lisa :) x

    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!

    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!

    My freezer is full of Tupperware full of food.
    I tend to make enough to serve 4 and max that get eaten at once is two servings (me and my partner)
    I have been following some of the free recipes on the slimming world website
    i'm doing extra easy and in the past week I have made large batches of bean chilli, cottage pie, onion frittata, ratatouille and chicken tikka masala.. Ooh and the creamy mushroom and tomato pasta
    i love cooking
