biscuit dough or some cinnamon scrolls for the freezer as well.
I have some staples that I do often... cottage pie, pork bolognaise, lemon chicken. All yummy. As we move into Winter I've had the slow cooker out and been moving into stews and lamb shanks and other hearty warming mains.
I started working this way after a Mama Bake last year where most of us ended up bringing our contributions pre-cooked due to time/space/too many kids. It hadn't really occurred to me that I could save so much time during the week by giving up a day here and there to make some dinners. Evenings can be pretty hectic here with readers and homework and playdates and a toddler who has dropped his day sleep and is exhausted by 5pm. Being able to whack something in the microwave and some pasta on the stove is such a win.
That and the fact that half the week the supertrucker isn't here and I'm flying solo... the other half I want to be able to enjoy time with him and not be tied to the stove!
Anyway the systems junkie in me wants to update the repertoire, I really need to include some more vegie heavy or vegetarian meal options in my planning. I do cook at least half the week (including our home made pizza night once a week) but I'm feeling a bit stale and want some inspiration.
So would anyblogger be interested in preparing a recipe post if I set up a blog hop and sharing some fave meals? In say a week or so? I'll share my new fave Chicken Korma recipe, it is sooooo yummy!
