Tuesday’s Tip Jar – Extra Food

February 17, 2009 at 3:33 pm 1 comment


When I was at a friend’s house the other week, she mentioned oftentimes when she makes dinner, if the recipe is for a 9″x13″ pan, she’ll use two 8″ pans, using one for her meal that day, and puts the other in the freezer for a future meal. This makes sense for our family to do, since we would not be able to eat such a large pan between the three of us. And I just love being able to take something out of the freezer that is already made!

Other suggestions, when making a meal, double the recipe and freeze half of it.

When baking, why not freeze some of the cookie dough to bake later, or bake all of the cookies, and put some in a freezer bag for another time? From my experience, cookies freeze very well. This is also nice if I am taking a meal to someone and don’t really feel like making extra dessert, I can just take out a bag of cookies from the freezer; you’ll probably want to let them thaw before you give them away. 🙂

Making extra food normally does not take much more time, and can give you the evening off sometime, when you really need it.
