Slow cookers are wonderful inventions put everything in and sit back and let it cook to perfection.
Today I am cooking up recipes that can be used for meals later on.
Chicken cubed, frozen mixed vegetables, bell pepper, onion, condensed chicken soup herbs and spices. All cooked in the slow cooker (crock pot) once cooked it will divided up into three tubs and frozen that way I have three meals in the freezer. This can be used for a Pie, Chicken Supreme and Pasta Bake.
Tonight I cook up some mince with onions, mixed vegetables , herbs and spices. This can be turned into Shepherds pie, chili by adding some baked beans DH does not like kidney beans and extra spices or bolognese, again three meals ready at the drop of a hat. I cook off the fat in the mince first and drain it so that I am not adding it to the cooking pot.
I may not be able to stand for long but the slow cooker does it all. Chop the vegetables sat down and add everything to the slow cooker and hey presto dinners are prepared and ready for days when I need meals fast.
Batch cooking means I can healthy meals when I cannot stand to cook or having a really busy day and don't want to cook, simply defrost heat and eat. Add some rice, baked potato or make up some pastry or cook some pasta to go with the meal and I have a simple healthy meal. Takeaway be gone I am eating healthy.
