Meal planning when everything doesn’t go to plan

Last week was one of those weeks where we departed from our original meal plan quite a bit. Firstly we got to about 6:00 on Sunday without having done the shopping or having the energy to do it. At times like that, having a freezer full of leftovers is a life saver. The red curry below is one of my all time favourite freezer meal.

By the time I did get to the shops (on Tuesday!!!), they didn’t have the lamb racks that I wanted, so I had to improvise with a lamb min-roast.   Finally we decided we wanted to have dinner at home before driving up to Sydney on the Friday, so I had to find something nice and quick to do that night.  The steamed fish is one of my go to lazy/quick dinners and so tasty – always a good thing to have up your sleeve.
