  1. You will be impressed with my efforts so far....a chicken casserole,2 lots (lbs ha ha) of cooked lamb mince and 2 beef stews are in my freezer.
    I was so sick of the What's For Tea question.
    What other goodies freeze well and are not part of the stew/ragu family?

    I made a huge pot of soup last night - had to rearrange the freezer to squeeze the containers in. I'm impressed at myself.

    Curry or chilli. Pie filling - I have the makings of 2 more turkey pies in the freezer.
    Whenever I make fish pie or shepherds pie I freeze a helping of filling plus a bag of mash for the top.

    These things freeze well as the high liquid content means they do not 'dry out' in the freezer, as can happen. If freezing pasta based dishes always make them 'wetter' than usual.
    Pie fillings freeze well, as do pies but best with pastry uncooked.
     
  5. mmm pie fillings good idea. Any which are not too heavy on the meat?

    watch out as the mushrooms can sometimes go a bit black when they have been in the freezer and 'uncovered' by the sauce.

    Chicken and sweetcorn, Chicken and Mushroom, Veggie pie fillings all work well.

    The following are also good in the freezer
    Lasagna (veggie or meat)
    Bolognese sauce (veggie or meat)
    Moussaka
    Shepard pie filling
    Scouse
    curry
