Zuchini Slice

The other day I was out shopping and spotted some very cheap zuchini's, so I bought a kilo and a half. The next day I got out my recipe folder and set to work. I made the first zuchini slice with some sliced cherry tomatoes from our garden sliced over the top. Yum!!

I made a second batch of zuchini slice to which I also added a couple of grated carrots, and these two were sliced up and put in the freezer for a night when I don't feel like cooking.

Whenever I cook something, whether I'm baking or cooking dinner, I always try and think about whether I can double-up or triple-up the cooking amount so I can freeze some up for another night or two.

Even something as simple as cooking up a double lot of mince and onion when making a spaghetti bolognese can be a great help. I can freeze the extra cooked mince and onion and use it for a number of other meals, for example I used a batch of this just last week when I threw this and a heap of veggies into the crockpot for the day. Just add some water and a packet of chicken noodle soup and dinner was ready when we got home, Easy peasy!!

It really takes no extra time or power to make double batches of things, you should try it!!
