I’m apparently unable to make small amounts of food. Last month, I had lasagna because I made a rather excessive amount of bolognese sauce. This month, I decided on casserole.
With that in mind, I started purchasing stuff. First, I started with the meats:
- 1.5 kg pork
- 1 kg bacon
- 1 kg sausages
- 1.5 kg minced beef
I use hot dogs instead of cocktail sausages as I find I typically get better quality for the same price.
After frying most of that, my 10 liters pot was mostly filled:
I took away half of the meat and froze it down (around 4 liters of cooked meat goodness). I then started adding vegetables:
- 500 g mushrooms
- 500 g peas
- 500 g corn
- 500 g onions
- 2.5 kg mixed carrots, red beets, parsley root and parsnips
- ½ garlic
Root crops are cheap at this time of the year, tasty and healthy. Mix and match as you see fit.
Cooking everything, adding a bit of water (very homeopathic!) salt and pepper, a liberal amount of thickening and half a liter of cream, and I ended up with 10 liters of casserole:
Again, we take something away, and freeze around 4 liters. The rest should be able to sustain me for days. The final step is adding some mashed potatoes as a side and end up with:
Quick recipe for mashed potatoes: boil potatoes, mash them. The more advanced recipe: Do as before and add liberal amounts of butter. Though it hurts me saying so, this is not really needed with the above casserole, as the large amount of meat and cream easily replaces butter for an extra healthy diet.
For an extra homeopathic diet, serve with water. The best way to serve water is in the form of beer.
