baking day 1.0 takes shape

29 12 2009

so i’ve been rolling around with the baking day concept, and after much online research about what i can put in my freezer without it turning to complete mush, i have worked out the following plan:

main dishes (2 batches of each):
spinach & ricotta stuffed shells
faux chicken stew
barbeque pulled seitan & green chile polenta
shepherd’s pie

soups:
veggie chili
cheesy potato soup

breads:
corn bread
buttermilk biscuits
pizza dough

sauces:
mushroom gravy
faux sausage gravy
spaghetti sauce with veggies & faux meat

i figure this way i can have a few definite meals, then some versatile components- like biscuits with the chicken stew or the sausage gravy. also, it’s nice to have the spaghetti sauce back up plan for when turning on the oven is even slightly too much work.

let me also add a disclaimer here that i am not a crazy organic scratch cooker. my chicken stew will involve a lot of cream of mushroom soup… my spaghetti sauce is newman’s own with extras…  my biscuits will be bisquick! i do love cooking- and i do love high quality food- but i also love the ease (and delicious saltiness) of convenience foods. just for the record, i am in no way a purist about how i cook/what i eat. bring on the velveeta!

Mmmm…. Velveeta. That’s how I make my mac and cheese…. with a lot of milk so it’s juicy!

exactly! regular cheese just doesn’t melt the same way! probably because it’s not made of plastic and rocket fuel… but whatever! it’s sooooo delicious.
