Each night while cleaning the kitchen after dinner I also prepare the next nights meal in the crock pot. I also put meals together in gallon zip lock freezer bags so I just have to dump it in crock pot in the morning, set temp and away we go for the day.
After a meal, if I have leftover vegetables, I place the leftovers in small containers in the freezer.

One supermarket boss, Dalton Philips of Morrisons, thinks so, and he has credited money-saving home chefs with changing the nature of shopping. The Today Programme sent one reporter out to buy ingredients for a homemade chicken tikka masala for four people.

Fresh herbs will almost always taste better, but dried herbs are great for storage purposes.  When using fresh herbs, use half the amount of herbs the recipe calls for as most recipes, unless they specify, are referring to dried herbs. Herbs do well inside and they are mostly easy to grow and care for and will allow you to harvest many times at a fast rate.
Part of the fun of adding herbs to your dishes is finding out how much you like and what you like and the way they taste together.

Is it cheaper to cook from scratch rather than buy a ready meal?Cooking with a microwave (get those ready meals out!) is much more energy efficient than cooking using an electric oven, according to data from the Energy Saving Trust. But there is a time and a place for a ready meal.'However, supermarkets are keen to push the cheap but homemade option.
