Isn’t it great when a plan comes together?!
Last week I spent an hour or so at the weekend cooking ahead for the week. It didn’t seem like I spent much time in preparation (probably less than an hour ‘hands on’ time), but it sure made a difference to my week!
Roast Tomato and Red Pepper Soup was delicious – in fact we had as Prawn, Roast Tomato and Mascarpone Pasta one night, and Oven baked Cod with Roast Tomato sauce the next night (see the recipe if you want the details). Both got an enthusiastic response from the family – so win-win in my book!
After that success, this week is a cook ahead week too – it’s time to empty the freezer again so some of the cooking has already been done.
