Works for me Wednesday

on February 13, 2008

This is my first time joining in on What Works for me Wednesday, this weeks is being hosted over at Don’t Try this at Home  and since I have been working on simplifying (hey, shout out to Amy over at Tiny Blessings as her word for the year is simplify) on the way breakfast and lunch and even sometimes dinner go.  I like simple meals or at least meals that I can do prep work before hand, crock pots are my best friend, but DH doesn’t like to eat food from a crock pot everyday of the week, believe I have tried it.  So okay, the other day I made mini pizzas, here’s how:

1 pack of English muffins

1 jar of pizza sauce

favorite pizza toppings.

Spread out English muffins on a cookie sheet, spread some pizza sauce on the muffins, then top with the toppings (I only added cheese and pepperoni, next time I’d like to add some sausage and maybe mushrooms for Christian and I).  Put cookie sheets in freezer then once frozen transfer to a storage container or freezer bag then all you do is pull them out and bake them in the oven when you are ready to eat!  They are crunchy and yummy, and best of all I can eat one for lunch!

The other thing I did today to simplify and also cut back on portions is to make a batch of cookie dough.  Yep I make cookie dough to cut back on portions LOL.  Okay what I did was lined cookie sheets with wax paper and using my scoop I scooped out balls and put them in the freezer.  I baked some for a dessert after lunch and dinner for today.  Once the balls are frozen transfer to a storage container or bag and pull out what you need when you need it.  No more mixing dough and then pigging out on a bunch of cookies and realizing they only lasted a day!

So this is what works for me and if you have any other ideas or recipes for freezing please leave me a comment with them.  We are trying to limit carbs and sugars so if you leave me a recipe please keep that in mind but no artificial sweetners.

God bless,

    I've been making those English Muffin pizzas for years, but I have never thought to premake them and freeze them! Awsome! I can't wait to try this.

    HELLO THANK YOU FOR VISITING. MY FRIEND MADE THEM ONE TIME AND ITS THE FIRST TIME I DID IT AND THEY ARE GREAT. I AM GOING TO THE STORE TONIGHT TO GET MORE INGREDIENTS. A WHOLE PACK OF ENGLISH MUFFINS GIVES US 3 LUNCHES OR 4 IF I DON'T EAT THEM LOL.Edited by OhioSarah on Feb. 13, 2008 at 3:01 PM
