Okay, this is going to be a boring post but it’s about food so bear with me. I’ve done the maths over several large-scale cooks and it’s definitely more efficient buying whole chickens and butchering them yourself over buying pre-cut breast, for example. I basically planned a couple of weeks’ worth of meals and purely bought the ingredients for those, along with a few ‘just-in’case’ meals.
It seems expensive to bulk cook because of the upfront cost, but when that £60 shop will last 3 weeks easily, it makes the value really quite good. I also made banana, oat and honey cookies which were really rather delicious. So delicious in fact that the batch disappeared within an hour.
I’ve also been experimenting with a small action camera that can be attached pretty much anywhere you like - it’s been living on my bike for the last few days, but I did for my shame attach it to my helmet for the ride home today.
