So since I did last weeks works for me Wednesday on a way to make meals for small numbers, I will share another tip.
I like to make casseroles, but they are always so big, and now that it just Matt and me eating it we always end up throwing some away. I can only eat the same thing so much.
So tonight, I wanted to make Chicken Poppy Seed Casserole, but I don't have my brother to eat the rest of it. I only cooked half the chicken needed, and then made the whole amount of the sauce, but only put half on , and froze the other half. I only used half the topping too. I used the small pyrex pan not the 9 by 13.
Now next time we want to make it, I already have it half made! YAY. Now I really could have been on the ball and cooked double the chicken and cut it up and put it in the freezer too. But I wanted to save the chicken we have left for other things.
Just the right size. There was one serving left over (LUNCH!)
(yes, i forgot to take a pic of the small casserole finished. OOPS I was hungry!)
*** I need help - I can't figure out how to put a video on my posts. The toolbar has an insert picture option but not a video. Is there something I am missing? You can email me at wannabebakerblog (at) gmail (dot) com or leave it in the comments if you have tips! Thanks so so much!***
