Mmmm dinner

I'm trying to get in the habit of cooking ahead/prepping ahead and all round more organized dinner eating. The Tall Guy and I get home from work about 6ish, which isn't late, but when I cook from scratch, as I try to do more of now, dinner doesn't hit the table til close to 8pm some nights and what one doesn't need is me hannngry! (hungry=angry for me!)
Last night while cooking one dinner, I prepped for tonight as well. The Tall Guy thought this made for a cool picture, so now you also get to see inside our refrigerator. Yikes!
The recipe is from Food Network's Cooking with the Neely's and is here. I did sub Soy Chorzio for the real stuff which you can now find in not just Whole Foods or Trader Joe's but I found it at Giant!The great thing about making a casserole tray for dinner for the two of us is that even though the Tall Guy eats a decent amount...there's plenty for leftovers for the rest of the week!

Anyone have any recipes that stay happy in the fridge for a few days (i.e. cooking on a Sunday for dinner Wednesday?)


  1. Looks delicious! And look what else I found when I checked out the website: Wasn't I just saying I'm hungry for this?? Yum!!

  2. I've found that almost anything can be frozen....I just make a ton of something and then freeze it into 1-2 night servings, so that I don't have to defrost it all at one time. I've done it with turkey chili, chicken cacciatore, fajitas (the filling), turkey meatballs, lasagna, turkey meatloaf, israeli cous cous......rice is the only thing that turns out a little weird so far in my experience. We should start a recipe swapping site because I'm tempted to try a bunch of things that you've mentioned. Love you!
