Kitchen Tip Tuesday - batch cooking soups
This is my first posting to Kitchen Tip Tuesdays over at Tammy's Recipes, but I have been reading them for ages.
My tip is probably not new to most of you but if bears repeating anyway.
I make a large batch of soup - I can never manage to make a small batch - even though it is often only me eating it (DH & DS aren't big soup eaters).
But now instead of trying to eat soup for four days running until it is finished or gets thrown out, I package the soup into individual sized tupperware-like containers and freeze.
When I am working, I grab one of these out of the freezer int he morning and pop it into my lunch bag - it serves as an icepack and the soup is mostly thawed by lunch time- of course I have access to a mircowave to warm it up.
These are also good for those - don't know what we want-don't feel like cooking nights.
