    Hi All

    Was just looking for some ideas on lunch time ideas for both red and green days now the weather is getting colder? I have access to a microwave at work but that's it. I ususally take my own food but am finding I need something warm now the snow is here!

    Thanks

    For my stew I literally just cut up carrots, turnip, onions and potatos and boil them in water with chicken bovril. I dont even put meat in it. Just veg, potatos and salt/pepper. Have it had for a few days now. SO easy and soo yummy.

    1. Homemade spicy butternut soup- recipe from BBC goodfood site. Very yum.
    2. Mug shots r fab- pasta, noodle and cous cous ones- all free or couple of syns max. My favourite is chicken pasta.
    3. Leftovers- make more for dinner than u need- I have pasta, rice, risotto, noodle dishes all reheated from nite before
    4. Jacket spud, beans and cheese- a SW staple for me.

    Am having tomato pasta for lunch today- leftovers from my tea. Passata, onions, mushrooms, peppers, garlic, herbs, then quark stirred in at last moment, then poured over pasta.

    Yes! Once it's defrosted though it can't be re-frozen.

    Hope that helps x

    Yip, I understand the 'don't refreeze' rule and now I understand I can freeze said stew in the first place, it helps a great deal :)

    Thanks again.
