I was thinking about OAMC but the idea of spending all day cooking all this stuff with 2 kids in the house seems pretty impossible. PLUS, I don't know if I'd want to waist an entire day cooking instead of spending time with the kids, since I WOH all week. So I was thinking, what if I just assembled and froze, for cooking later? Dream Dinners is the original company that started it all, letting people come in and assemble the meal (but not cook it), then they take it home, put in freezer, then pop in oven to cook it when they are ready. Sooo... does anybody do that at home, preassemble things but NOT precook them? Like can you assemble a chicken pot pie with only the meat pre-cooked, but the pie crust is raw, and freeze it like that? Do you think you could bake that without thawing it first? How long would it take to fully heat through AND cook? Or do you think that preassembly only, without pre-cooking, and no thawing, would only work for certain things like chicken parm, which wouldn't be as thick of a frozen block as a pot pie would be? I'm just brainstorming - even if you all haven't done this, do you have any opinions or insight as to how this would work? (There are cookbooks about this, but I don't feel like buying ANOTHER cookbook when I have so many already. I'm trying to figure it out with recipes I already have without having to spend any more $$$.) Any advice/imput would be greatly appreciated.
