This week I thought I'd post a little about double duty cooking. You know, you cook once and then eat twice? If you family can't stand the same thing twice in a row, or you don't do leftovers, then you might not like this idea. Here's how it is going with my family this week:
Monday, I made a big pan full of meatballs. We had meatball hoagies last night for supper, along with some chicken corn chowder.
Tuesday (tonight) I am using the rest of the meatballs with spaghetti and sauce. I'm rounding out the meal with green beans and a small salad.
Wednesday I am putting some chicken breasts in the crockpot. When they are finished cooking, I'm taking two out and putting wing sauce on top with a few blue cheese crumbles. I'll add a baked potato and some steamed broccoli and calling it a meal.
Thursday I'm taking the two leftover chicken breasts, shredding them, adding BBQ sauce (actually I am doing this Wednesday in the crockpot and then spooning it into a dish to be reheated on Thursday) and making some BBQ chicken sandwiches. I won't consider them finished until some cheese is added on top! We'll probably have leftover soup or chips or something with these.
Friday, I'm just making a frozen pizza. This is a hectic week, so I wanted to make sure I had some easy-peasy meals and I think these fit the bill nicely.
Typically, I make meals a little more...oh, in depth, I guess, but these still taste great and they are very easy.
Do you ever cook once and eat twice? Tell me about it!
Bless you all!
