What's in My Fridge & Freezer?

Placeholder Image

It’s not just at the EOFY that stocktakes are needed... I like to do a stocktake every week or two! Of my fridge and freezer, that is. 😁  I dig through my freezer, clean out the fridge, and write down all the meals and prepared foods I have stashed away. This way things don't get lost at the bottom of the freezer and the back of the fridge (hopefully!), I know what I have for the weekly meal plan, and I cut down on unnecessary shopping and food waste! 

I like to get a few meals prepared ahead for the week on the weekends, and my sister works with me on Mondays and cooks meals as well as basics like ghee, muffins, and snacks, which really helps my week to run more smoothly. Now that there are four adults in our home going off to work each day and needing packed lunches, plus all the other meals to cook for six adults, as well as a business to run, I find I really need to bulk prep as much as possible to save myself time and avoid the mealtime stress.

Here's a glimpse of my 'fridge/freezer stocktake' - the result of a couple of days of bulk cooking plus some bits and pieces that were already in the freezer. I highly recommend getting a friend over and doing a big cook-up together, then dividing up the meals - it's more fun that way and you'll be amazed at how much you can get done in a few hours!
