Boy, does it feel great to be getting ahead of myself in the kitchen!
I love being able to grab ingredients, pre-made sides and main dishes from the freezer for a quick throw together meal! And as I look at the coming month, I see whirlwind…my head is already spinning! At the end of September, I have the opportunity to go to New York for a few days on business, and I want to have some easy grabs for Steve in the freezer.
Like these mashed potatoes! And the meatloaves I made two weeks ago! What an easy meal for him…take out the night before to thaw in the fridge, and then throw in (or gently place) the microwave or oven to reheat/cook.
This week’s plan…
- Mashed Potato Sides – Done!
- Chocolate Chip Cookies – Freeze the dough (While I used to freeze it like this, I now flash freeze individual cookie doughs…much easier than slicing off cookies from a frozen log of dough. IMO.)
- Muffins – variety to be determined
- Pancakes – variety to be determined
I think that’s about all I can get in this week before we head south for the wedding.
How about you?! Are you ahead of yourself in the kitchen yet?!
