I need to use more variety when I batch cook. I am getting bored.

Since it's just me, I always have leftovers. I try to eat them the next day, but after a couple of days of the same thing, I get sick of it. I'm definitely going to try freezing more of the things I make to be used later!

Since I am one person a normal recipe is a big batch for me. I always have 2 or 3 servings left to freeze for the future.

Freezer bags have become such a necessity for me. On my off days I will bake things like casseroles or quiches, portion them out and store in the fridge. On work days I don't get home until 6.45 pm. My husband may not cook, but he can thaw!

I've been buying vegetables in bulk - carrots, spinach, potatoes, onions - since I use them in almost everything I make. I'm also making several dishes at once so everything can have the flavors settle in. Very yummy!

Ground turkey was on sale 2 packages for $5.00 (20 oz. pkg). So I bought 6 pkgs, put 3 in each crockpot with seasonings and some water, cooked on low for 6-8 hours (overnight, my digital crock automatically goes to 'warm' mode when it's done) and then crumbled it up and bagged it in 1 lb. increments and froze. Awesome so when recipes call for browned ground turkey, I'm already one step ahead!

For my family of four it is much cheaper for us to shop at Sams Club and buy our meats in bulk. We separate when we get home. During in the separation process we has started including 2xtra servings and that really helps with having health leftovers. My husband and I really like having them for lunch through out the week.

I did batch cooking last weekend and stuck most of it in the freezer. It worked really well for I had good food choices this week and was not bored at all. Need to buy more storing containers.

Its funny. I never thought when I batch cook for myself (I am only cooking for me) to put it into the freezers. I typically cook every weekend and then eat that food all week. I need to buy more containers as I realized I do not have enough to put all of my food into. It is a work in progress though.

Does anyone know if there are any containers that are better than others for the freezers?

Every other month a friend and I will get together and make several meals to be stored in the freezer. When I know I will be short of time, I take out a meal, let it defrost in the refrigerator when I am at work and throw it in the oven when I get home.

I still tend to do big batch cooking. On Saturdays I get up and cook for the whole week. I place everything in the bowls that have sections for food and place in my freezer. I also make a large amt of salad and place in individual bowls, salad dressing in seperate small bowls and place in the fridge. When I leave to work I grab a meal bowl from the freezer.. salad bowl from the fridge and a bowl that has my dressing and take with me... I get home from work (I work 10 hour days so I leave at 6 am and get home at 630 pm) pull out a menu bowl and place in the microwave and relax a little before eating...

I love it and I now have BF doing the same.

My boyfriend and I cook enough to have leftovers for lunch for the next day for both of us. We try not to make a big batch of food because he is not TOO crazy about eating leftovers for dinner the next day but he doesnt mind taking a little to work for lunch.

What we do like to do is if we have leftover potatoes or other veggies, we make another dish using them and meat like chicken or some sliced up steak and sauté them together and it taste awesome!

i have done big batch cooking--but it doesn't work out that well for us. DH will eat leftovers but he doesn't like doing it. and in the summer when we get super busy i forget i have leftovers and they burn up in the freezer and get thrown out.
i do batch freeze ingredients--i buy things in quantity when they are cheap and divide and freeze them.

focus on the parts you get right.

I love to batch cook for my husband and I also! We don't mind eating the same thing two nights in a row, and if I cook dried beans or something like chili, I can make more than just one thing with them.

We even batch cook roasted veggies, especially squash, parsnips, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, carrots. We cook a lot of them, let them cool completely and then seal them in zipper baggies. Thaw them and they're great in casseroles, pasta sauces, soups, or even warmed up and paired with brown rice.

Life's an adventure ... take it one step at a time and don't underestimate yourself! You're capable of more than you think you are! How do I know this? You're still here aren't you? That means you haven't given up!

One of my favorite things to cook up ahead and freeze portion sizes is chili, or bean soups. I didn't use to do this for myself. I love chili. DH hates it. I just went without. For years. NOW, I make up the whole chili recipe, and freeze portion sizes for myself. I bought the special little freezer containers. I don't ruin my containers by microwaving in them....I strictly use them for freezing only. In my last batch of chili, I added spinach to it. I admit that it's a little weird (in the texture department) , but I can't taste the spinach at all. Soups are a wonderful way for added veggies. Even when I was a kid and hated veggies, I could eat them in soups b/c the flavors blend. As an adult, I've forced myself to get over the veggie phobia. LOL.

I loved making a big batch of black bean and sausage soup and another one of tomato sauce this weekend! I might even cook another soup next weekend or so. I can not believe that I have my own healthy frozen meals now that I can just heat up whenever I don't feel like cooking.
Thanks a lot for helping me cooking healthier!

It's just 2 of us in my household and I'm a vegetarian and my husband is not. Every meal I cook I simply use two pots or pans. Just this week I made two big batches of Chili, one with ground turkey, and one with just beans. We had Chili, Chili Mac, and Chili dogs. I even froze half of both Chili batches, so we can repeat this in a month or so. I love the fact that we are eating healthy, still enjoying our meals, and saving money.

I have lunch about twice per week with my neighbor and almost always take leftovers from a recent recipe. It has been great for both of us as we focus on healthy meals and are always trying new ideas. I get to try so many "risky" recipes knowing I won't have as many leftovers.

I bought way too many carrots last week and wasn't sure what I was going to do except munch on carrots all day. I found a recipe for curry carrot soup. I could not image carrots tasting great as soup but boy was I wrong. The soup is amazing, cheap and something you don't mind eating more that once. I will try and add the recipe today.

I absolutely love batch cooking and use it all of the time. When I prepare meals, I often make a little bit extra to take to work with me the next day for my lunch. Such a time saver!

Since there are only two people in my household, I will make recipes serving 4 and I will freeze the other 2 servings to use later in the month. It usually works that I cook the first and third weeks and eat the leftovers the second and fourth week. I also will grill batches of chicken breast, slice them and store in individual servings.

I looked into batch cooking bread and it looks like you can freeze bread by wrapping in foil and then putting in a zip top storage bag. I just baked three batches of dinner rolls and am going to try freezing two of them.

I'm embarrassed to say that I've never tried batch cooking. I've read through almost every post in this section & got some good ideas (and a list of things not to try!). I do cook whole grains & bake bread for the week every Sunday, so I guess that's a start.

This week I'm going to try making a double batch of soup & freezing some. What about pasta dishes? Do those tend to freeze well?

Yay batch cooking! My crockpot has been on overload this week and the freezer is getting tight on space. Yesterday I cooked and pureed lots of spinach, broccoli, and apples/apricots and froze them for use in smoothies and to add in to various recipes to make them healthier. Now the crockpot is loaded with chicken and veggies for dinner tonight and 2 more lunches with the leftovers. :)

I made a turkey this weekend (we don't end up with leftovers from Thanksgiving so I usually make one a few weeks early). I froze some immediately for future use and have been using leftovers in other meals. I need to find more crockpot recipes that can sit for about 10 hours. Suggestions welcome!

Does anyone have any big batch recipes using one protein source and then making several meals from it? I had a few from Rachel Ray that I'll try to find. With Thanksgiving coming up finding healthy ways to use the leftovers would be good-sometimes that can be a challenge!

I have a wheat grinder that works like a dream and I store whole wheat. I also just got a brand new stand mixer and I am looking into doing some whole wheat breads home made. I have so far been having a lot of fun with my new mixer (my Kitchen Aid died out on me so I ended up getting a Hamilton Beech -- it was a Consumer Reports best buy and the price was great!!!!!!).

Another thing I am planning on doing is freezing our left overs. I love my Food Saver for this. It makes it great for left overs and a night that I have no idea what to make. Better than eating out that's for sure, lol!!!

My big batch cooking this week has so far consisted of making chicken for dinner last night. Lemon-grilled, very good. While the grill was hot my DH grilled up more chicken for Grilled Chicken Salad later this week for dinner/lunches.

Also, I haven't done it yet but I will be baking up 2 kinds of squash for this week for dinner and to freeze for future meals.

I seem to do big batch cooking on certain items in our house. When I plan on making lasagna, goulash, or homemade noodles I make extra ahead for future meals. Even when I boil up chicken I freeze the homemade broth for later meals.

Otherwise I guess I don't do a lot of batch cooking. Maybe I should give it a try!

I am super new to batch cooking!

We have one of those freezer bag "Seal a meal" machines and so today I went ahead and bought a new roll as well as some more freezer bags in various sizes.

I bought some apples on sale yesterday and so I have been "batch cooking" with them. I also bought a huge 5lb roll of hamburger on sale and split that up into 5 individual bags of meat. I just sealed them up and tossed them in the freezer for more recipes this coming week or two.

I also have a batch of pork chops I should have split, I think when I make them though I will just freeze the cooked portions instead of the raw ones. Make it even easier to re-heat and go later.

Small steps lead to big progress!

Today we had already decided to have split pea soup in the crock pot. I had almost 2 full pounds of peas, so instead of making one batch, we doubled it in the 6.5 qt crock, so we will have lots to freeze for the winter months ahead!

This would be really helpful. I am not home during the day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and my husband, who is home, would be able to just heat something up. It would also help for us to take when we go RVing, so that we don't always have the "what's for dinner?" discussion.

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

I never thought about rinsing of the hamburger to drain the rest of the grease I'm going to start doing that

I used to do big batch cooking years ago.. will have to look at that again. Also had some recipes (from Tupperware 30+ years ago!) that had ingredients to make a basic mix (kind of like bisquick or jiffy) that you could make dozens of things from, and another w/hamburger. I still buy a lot of hamburger from a local butcher 10 pounds at a time, come home, chop up onions and brown everything until its cooked through. I then measure it out in 1 cup increments, put in freezer bags and pull out when I need it. Makes cooking faster, it defrosts quicker and then I get done in the kitchen even faster. When I cook the hamburger & onions, I always drain off the fat, even though we don't get a lot from our burger anyway, but then I run it through hot water to take off even more fat. Started that when my hubby got high blood pressure to help keep him healthy. Anyway, hi everyone, part of my week 2 discussion! yahoo

Have a fun day!
