We took a few beef roasts out on Friday night to get minced on Saturday. I know it seems crazy to make mince from lovely roasts - but it all cost us the same amount and it's the mince that we need.
Ruth got started first.
Brendon did all the cutting up so that it was in nice little blocks. Loads of work which I am so very thankful for.
By lunch time our two big pots of food were done. Rachel's favourite meal is the bigger pot of "mince and veg" as it get's labelled. The smaller pot was bolognese sauce.
I think these might have been the tastiest batches to date as Rachel spent a lot longer adjusting herbs and salt and pepper.
Rachel also did an apple crumble for Monday's breakfast and I made another cheesecake to freeze in portions for Brendon and I (we have it for breakfast).
It really was a meal marathon weekend but so worth all the effort. It has taken so much pressure off planning and sorting meals. I am so thankful to my family for their willingness to pitch in and help.
