What's for tea?

Let's look in the freezer. It's always a surprise as not much is labelled. Any guesses?

Righto, bacon. Now what shall I do with this?

DH - egg, bacon, mushrooms and tinned tomatoes mopped up with home made bread.


bacon, onion, garlic, carrots, new potatoes, broccoli (stems and tops), celery hot pot.

Fry bacon and onion together then drain off the fat. 
Add all the rest except the tops of the broccoli.
Add water and a stock cube then simmer on the hob or put in casserole in the oven until it's cooked. I put it in the oven and left it on low for about one and a half hours. I then just turned the oven off and left it another half hour until it was tea-time. It was still hot.
Add the tops of the broccoli towards the end of cooking and also some gravy granules to thicken.
Et voila.

Same again tomorrow and the bacon is gone. DD had one portion of the hot pot so out of my little foil parcel came 5 meals.


  1. I love it when you grab a bit of this and a bit of that and it comes together in one nice tasty meal. Five meals....fantastic!!
