If you’ve never tried cooking ahead, please try it . . just once or twice!
Over the weekend I made Chicken Parmigiana.
It was so good! Don’t anyone tell me you can’t tell the difference in home grown canned tomatoes vs. store bought canned tomatoes. I made extra and froze it.
I can hardly wait to have it but I’ll wait til some day when I’m too tired or don’t have the time to cook. I’ll pull it out, heat it up, serve with pasta, bread and a salad and we’ll have a yummy meal with no effort.
And, another night over the weekend, I was made pizzas. Had pizza crust dough in the freezer so we had homemade pizza in no time at all!
Any time you’re cooking a meal, think about whether what you’re making would freeze well. If so, make extra, freeze it and have it later. Just keep a list of what you’re putting in the freezer because you don’t want to forget about it and leave it too long and then lose it.
Remember . . time saved is time you can use for quilting!
