    Yeh I'm hoping to do this once I go on mat leave. Thinking of doing things like chile, bolognase, shepherds pie, curries, soups, stews, casseroles - basically anything that you can cook easily in a big pot and then freeze into smaller portions! X

    Thanks ladies, I've made a list of food to get in and I'm going to do a few meals each day I've only 2wks and 2days to go. I've just got housesorted so if I do the food now then I can chill. Its getting so exhausting just being awake and to uncomfortable to sleep lol x

    I've been doing it for a couple of weeks, but I do a double dinner and then freeze half so I'm not using any more gas/electric doing it. Or being on my feet for longer than I need to be lol x

    In theory I'm doing this as I'm due in October so want lots of yummy stews, problem is DS is a bugger for eating anything messy & DH + I are both useless at remembering to defrost things :lol:
