I love cantaloupe, but I hate cutting one. So, I now put the melon into a plastic grocery bag and set it on a baking sheet with sides. It's wonderful! I slice the melon, scoop out the seeds, peel the melon and it's all in the bag. Tie up the bag, throw it away, put the baking dish away and I'm done!
I love to bake from scratch for my family on vacation. It's cumbersome to take ingredients along so I combine the dry ingredients in zip lock baggies before I go. On the outside of the bag, I write the wet ingredients that need to be added and the temp and time on the bag so I can bake for my family when we are on vacation.
Today I put oats, flour, brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon in a ziplock, on the front I put "crisp", add butter/margine. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. I also do this with muffins, cookies, quick breads, etc. It's also really, really fast to bake!
Divide cookie dough into cookie sized portions. Quick freeze these in a single layer on a cookie sheet and once frozen, portion into freezer bags. After sealing, write baking directions on each bag. Bags of one or two are great for a quick fix, bags of 6 to 8 are great when you have company!
