    Ditto. I've prepared and frozen some portions of broccoli & stilton soup and of my spinach bread. I also have some Lidl rolls in the freezer, some prawns and some quality burgers ... stuff I can grab and warm up quickly.

    @sugar-rush123 The spinach bread I make can be sliced very thin, and then each slice fried in butter until crispy. Makes excellent crackers.

    Just had the same brekkie (apart from the tomatoes) and it's a keeper: 2 hours later I've gone from 6.2 to 5.6. My best post-brek reading so far :)

    I've made your spinach bread before - very nice - how well does it freeze? That soup sounds gorgeous. Do you use a recipe or is it an experiment?
