Cook once, get three suppers

Get dinner sorted and make two dishes for midweek while you’re at it


Even those of us who love cooking can get a bit fed-up with the midweek supper dash (so much to do, so little time!). So imagine being able to cook on a Sunday and have another couple of meals waiting in the fridge to warm up faster than you can say ready meal.

You can even freeze the midweek dinners if you prefer.

The mothership – a Sunday roast

Everybody loves a nice roast on a Sunday, and with a bit of imagination it can be Monday and Tuesday’s supper too!

Start with a joint of beef that’s big enough to allow for leftovers.

Peel extra spuds too, then, take half of them out of the pan after par-boiling for your roasties and leave the other half in the pan to cook through. Once they’re done, mash them.

You’ll need to cook and set aside some extra carrots too.

Dinner Idea two: Shepherd’s Pie

Mince some of your leftover beef (or chop finely by hand) and sauté with some chopped onions or herbs according to taste. Set aside a quarter of this for meal number three and then add a tin of tomatoes to the remaining mince before putting into an ovenproof dish.

Mash your leftover carrots and combine with your mashed potato before layering on top of the mince.

When you’re ready to eat, place in the oven until piping hot and browned on top.

Dinner idea three: Savoury Rissoles

Take what’s left of the mash and season well. Mix this with the remaining cooked mince and onions.

Shape this mixture into patties the size of large round biscuits, about 2cm thick.

When you’re ready to eat, fry the rissoles until browned and cooked through.

Savvy tip

A much-enjoyed family dinner invariably leaves messy tablecloths and teatowels in its wake! Use Ariel 3in1 Pods. They only take one wash to blitz stains - cleaning and lifting the stains - and the results are brighter too!

My mum cooked this way in the 1950s and no doubt countless women did so for years before. Nothing new under the sun.
