This summer she works all day on a lawn crew and they work long, long hours. I'm sure the last thing she wants to do when she comes home is to cook something so I try to keep her freezer filled with good things to eat. She is vegetarian so every meal here is a vegetarian version.
Broccoli and "Chicken" Alfredo
Eggs, Potatoes, "Bacon" and Cheese
Linguine and "Meatballs"
I put each meal in a single serving sized pan
(actually each will probably be enough for 2 meals for her)
Each pan has a tidy lid
and they are so very convenient because they are microwaveable.
Yes, you read that right.
(The lids are NOT microwaveable - just the pans)
I made more than one of each,
but I sent one of each with her to school
and put the others in my freezer for
next time she comes home for 5 minutes.
But! It is just as easy to make family sized meals (how many are you cooking for? freeze meals that size). These pans come in 9 different sizes!
I also sent single serving bowls of
(minus the cucumbers. frozen cucumbers = bleh. add those later)
And her favorite Egg Rolls.
Hopefully that will keep her for a little while.
Maybe if she runs out of meals in the freezer she'll come home again.
Even if for only 5 minutes.
