Cheap easy meals please :)

Postby amba » Fri Dec 05, 2014 5:36 pm

Has anybody got any cheap easy meals I can make and also freeze? I want to cook some meals in the new year so I can freeze them and not faff about with cooking after my baby is born. I have 3 other children so NOT cooking isn't an opinion :(

After xmas is always tight, money wise, so also cheap please

Thanks everyone :)

I make veggie/lentil sauce. Blend it up and put on pizza bases (v cheap to make) or on pasta. Cheap cuts of beef on slow cook casseroles.

Definitely cheap cuts slow cooked, bulk casseroles out with lentils, pasta sauces (I use the cheap bacon off cuts with tinned tomatoes and a chopped onion plus dried herbs for a yummy sauce), cottage / shepherds pie with loads of veg chopped up very small in it, risotto can also be made cheaply and is a good filling meal.
