One of the things my mum said before she left was to cook what was in the freezer--makes sense as they are gone for six months. Mind you, they have a deep chest freezer, so I don't know how far I'll get.
Have had a hankering for chicken and pasta so made a really quick creamy-pesto chicken. Sauteed onions, garlic and mushrooms, and chunks of chicken all swathed in a basil pesto and cream sauce. Yum.
And yes Beanie thought I was making this just for him.
