Simple pleasures: freezer cooking

I cook for one, which means the temptation is often there at dinner time to grab and sandwich or order take away. A busy day can leave me short on motivation to cook, so I combat this with (when I’m organised) freezer cooking. I take an afternoon and make a couple of big batches of different dishes, divide them into individual portions, put them in freezer bags and pop them in the freezer. There’s nothing like getting home after a long day, happy in the knowledge that a Mum-approved, decent dinner is just a few microwaveable minutes away. Not exactly a life hack but I’m all in favour of anything that takes even the smallest amount of hassle out of my day. Today’s menu includes fajitas and stir fry and it should get me through the weekend.
