I peeled, boiled and mashed a batch of potatoes earlier. I find mash freezes really well and it saves time (both in terms of cooking and cleaning up) to have it ready made. It also saves the spuds from going off before I get chance to use up a large bagful. I then started to sort out the pantry which has become something of a dumping ground for odds and ends. It needs a bit more work but I ran out of time as we had family over to meet the baby. Still, I find anything like batch cooking and sorting out supplies helps me stay on budget.
