Cath's Meal Plan 20 - 26 March 2016

A stash of sandwiches in the freezer, ready to toast make a very easy meal

This coming week, in the lead up to the Easter holiday, we'll be eating from the freezer to keep meals easy and to stop the urge to just buy something ready made. Life here is still hectic with visiting Mum twice a day so I'm opting for anything easy. All these dinners are in the freezer, even the sandwiches - they just need to be toasted. If it's cool there's soup in the freezer we can have with them.

I try to keep a stash of made sandwiches in the freezer ready to just put in the sandwich press or under the grill. They're handy for quick lunches or easy dinners.

Some of our favourite fillings are:

chicken, cheese and pineapple
ham, cheese and mustard
chicken, sliced brie and cranberry sauce
chicken, ham, corned beef or roast beef with coleslaw, cheese and sweet chilli sauce

If we want tomato we add it to the sandwich before toasting, it goes soggy in the freezer. The coleslaw is fine to freeze if it's dry - if it has dressing on it add it just before toasting the sandwich.

This week we will be eating:

Sunday: Roast Lamb

Monday: Salmon quiche & salad

Tuesday: Lamb fritters with sweet chilli sauce & salads

Wednesday: Nachos

Thursday: MOO Pizza

Friday: BBQ steak, salad

Saturday: Toasted sandwiches


  1. Cath, I don't know why I've never thought of freezing sandwiches and then toasting them on our pannini! What convenience! Thank you for sharing this idea!

  2. I love your idea of keeping some sandwiches in the freezer! I'm going to have to try that.

  3. Great idea Cath! I have never thought of keeping a stash of sandwiches in the freezer for using as toasted sandwiches. Thanks

  4. I just found your blog and LOVE LOVE it.
