Planning and organising the fridge and freezer
Hello everybody I would just like if I can talk about planning and organising the fridge and freezer. Some useful tips that can help those who like myself have really bad days of depression and anxiety. I know I am not alone in this. I live alone but with support from a mental health charity. Priority is to plan and organise myself each week especially food. One of the things I have learnt is to shop carefully and always make a list of food you could easily prepare. I also have a disability of the hands have fingers missing. So I can not use knives very well. Try to look at a food processors and things like blenders, slow cookers. There is plenty of advice on line. Invest in a good freezer I have a frost free one which means I do not have to defrost it every time. Create a folder with a stocklist of food items that you already have. Just like the supermarkets do and any food retail outlet. Time saver and money might already have items enough for a weeks meals. Use this folder for recipes things you like . Remember loads on web or make something up. Use zip bags for sauces, soups and recipes like Chilli, Bolognese all freeze well. Being the spiceman have a small stock of spices and condiments to flavour food. Many supermarkets have specific spice blends for every type of cuisine. Lastly fresh herbs chop up in olive oil and freeze in ice cube trays. When frozen remove into zip bags and label. Hope any of this helps anybody.
