Big Batch Cooking
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
My daughter and I spent last Saturday doing some big batch cooking. What a great time we had speculating on how the various dishes would taste. We tried some new recipes and some that we had done before and really liked. I have enough frozen dinners for the next month, actually enough so that I can have two meals a day. I will be enjoying such things as Swedish meatballs, meatball soup, lasagna, chicken paprikash, lazy perogies and beef and pasta. The best part of it all is that there was no salt added to any of them. I have been trying for so long to get rid of the salt in my diet and finally have accomplished it. For now, I am concentrating on eating healthy food, preparing my food from fresh produce and not eating prepacked food. If I can't read all the ingredients listed, I don't eat it.
Portion size is also a top priority, and having the frozen dinners portioned out before freezing is a great way of controlling that.
All the weekend cooking makes me look forward to the rest of the month and the great variety of foods I will be eating.
