Freezer Stash – Roast Beef and all the usual suspects πŸ€—

At the end of the month, all of those little bits you stashed in the freezer come into play.

I have taken a pack of finely sliced rare roast beef from the freezer, from a meal I made in December, from an Aldi Beef Joint. I defrosted it and popped it into an ovenproof dish, with a splash of water, covered with foil and into a hot oven till warmed through, keep the water to add to the gravy.

Roast Beef, golden roast potatoes, Parsnips, carrots, frozen homegrown green beans, Homemade Yorkshires and lashings of gravy – Yum…. not bad from leftovers πŸ˜‡

The potatoes are peeled and chopped, and I have some parsnips in the freezer from when Aldi had them in their Super6. Homegrown green beans, and Lidl special buy carrots.

I make the Yorkshires by adding 2 whole eggs, half a cup of plain flour a pinch of salt and enough very cold water to make a ‘double cream’ thickness – I leave this batter for at least an hour to ‘rest’ then pour into very hot oil and cook for 30-40 minutes till huge and golden πŸ˜‡

I am not one for bragging, but I had to put an egg next to the Yorkshires for scale !!!! πŸ€—

I tossed the par cooked potatoes into hot oil for 40 minutes into a preheated oven, add the parsnips and sweet potato after 10 minutes.Β The carrots and green beans are steamed.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
