I'm trying to decide what sort of food storage containers to get for things like flour, oats, sugar, etc. I've narrowed it down to 2 choices, food grade plastic like these http://www.containerstore.com/browse...ml?CATID=74064 or big glass canning jars like these http://www.containerstore.com/browse...ml?CATID=74177 The glass is preferable of course over plastic, but I do worry a bit about breakage with 4 young children and a clumsy husband. I found wide mouth ones...
I think if you freeze it, you are supposed to do it upside down. Google it, I can't remember exactly why, but it makes it keep the right consistency or something.
You can make homemade pita bread super easy. There are tons of recipes online. Then you could have chicken in the pitas with sliced tomatoes and cucumber sauce, yum. Chicken enchiladas Chicken pot pie chicken and dumplings chicken tacos nachos with chicken on top

I have the book The Bread Bible and it has tons of great recipes. Unfortunately, I don't have it here at the apartment. But, I can't wait to get back to my house so I can bake again. I would highly recommend it. I made several really yummy french breads/baguettes from it.
For all of you who cook mainly from scratch, what is your routine? Do you bake certain things of a certain day? Do you cut all your veggies at a certain time? Do you prepare meat before hand? Do you premake mixes, like pancake mix? I am wondering how everyone manages their meal prep routines and balances that with their other responsibilities.
