Hi! I am so new to meal planning...heck, I'm new to cooking. My family's eating habits are in a sad state. With DS eating table food, and a small budget, its become clear that I need to get my act together!!
I've gotten so many good ideas just from lurking around here, but I have a few quick questions:
1. I have a chicken pot-pie recipe I want to try, and I thought I'd double it so I could put one in the freezer. All the ingredients are cooked, then you put the uncooked cornbread crust on and then place it in the oven. Would I freeze it after putting on the uncooked crust, or after cooking the whole thing? Then, to use it after freezing, does it need to thaw, or can I put it right in the oven? I also saw that some of you line the dish with aluminum foil or parchment paper, then after the food is frozen, take it out of the dish and "wrap it up." How do you wrap it up?
: I'm so cooking challenged....
2. Does anyone have a good recipe for eggplant parmigana that I could make a bunch of and freeze for quick use? Again, I need help on the freezing and then re-cooking process. I'm preggo and loving eggplant parmigana (this week
Thanks, you all are so awesome. I'm serious. I read your plans and recipes, and I just think, "how in the world do they do this." I'm hoping it will get easier with practice!
