Well, the dreaded gamboo had struck our house.
Mostly I’m happy that I don’t have to cook tonight, because I have stock of frozen casseroles in the freezer.
I started creating a stash before I had P, and it’s the smartest thing I’ve done! Well, not THE smartest… but a smart thing. 🙂 Now, almost every time I make a casserole I double it — and I either find a friend that needs the other 1/2 or I freeze it. I am trying to have at least 3 of a variety in the freezer, just for times like this. I make sure to cover them in plastic wrap and then foil, and so far they’ve all stayed pretty good. I try to get them out in the AM to defrost (Drew once stuck one right in the oven and it didn’t do well, even after an hour of cooking it was pretty solid in the middle).
I did try the Scrumptious Strawberry Shortcake last week and it was better than Bisquik shortcake. It was god but not AMAZINGLY better. I’ll probably stick with bisquik and save my butter for another recipe.
On another note, wow — the AF band accident is huge news in Utah. I think the only highlight of that enormous tragedy is the fact that they used “bandimony“ in a news article. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you are obviously cooler than I am.
