I cook bulk meals and freeze. It's cheaper & quicker. I hate cooking every day.

I'll freeze leftover rice & sauces as we try to save money by not throwing food out, but don't freeze milk or butter. Don't have the room.

 Same here. Occasionally freeze cheese.

Sometimes. I find Milk freezes well and like to keep an extra litre in the freezer for emergencies. I’m not a fan of uht milk, it tastes funny to me.
I only freeze rice if I’ve got a lot leftover. I’ll only freeze mash if a make a shepherd’s pie for the freezer.

Ive frozen rice when I’ve made too much. It reheats perfectly. I’ve frozen butter if it was on a good sale. I haven’t needed to freeze the other items.

Yes i sometimes freeze milk, defrosts well and have frozen rice and mash, both also defrost well, i add a splash of milk to the mash before reheating it. I also make a loaf’s worth of ham and cheese sandwiches, use them for quick toasties when i cant be fkd.

 I freeze cheese too
