I'm a bit behind, but at the beginning of February the kids and I decided to do our "making" and "service" together by cooking freezer meals for our family and to share with our friends who might have busy schedules or be in a position where a frozen meal might come in handy. I shared the recipes in a previous post, but some of our take aways:
- Your hands smell when you work with onions. A used a Pampered Chef chopper to chop them up for our cheeseburger casserole, but that didn't keep the smell away completely!
- It takes a long time to cook 12 chicken breasts! R and I got a cooking and chopping system down, but it took a while!
- The casseroles took a lot longer to cook than the directions said!
- We should have started much earlier in the day, this is time consuming (but worth it) and we ran into bedtime problems.
The kids had a lot of fun taking charge of a recipe, helping with measurements, and now of course eating our creations! And we've been able to share 4 different casseroles so far with friends!
