Happy Holidays to everyone! I've been on this WONDERFUL list for years and
this is my first post. I sure hope I don't blow it! I just had to make a
comment on the Chocolate Zuchinni Brownies. I thought they were great and
instead of putting them in a pan I made cupcakes (a single batch makes 18
cupcakes). I always try to have something around the house during the holidays
that I can serve guests who stop by and thought these would work great. I used
the Christmas holly cupcake cups and decorated them with a icing holly sprig
and berry. They look really festive. Obviously they're stored in the freezer
and I can pull out what I need when I need them.
I'd also like to share how I cook and store my soups. Very rarely do I cook
for one meal at a time. I live alone so I don't have to satisfy anyone but me
and I'm lazy. I cook huge batches of soup, beans, etc. and freeze them in
24 ounce cottage cheese cartons. For me that makes two bowls/two meals. At
the beginning of the week I pull out usually four containers and let them thaw
in the refrigerator and have my meals for the week. This works great for me.
Again I'd like to wish everyone a great holiday season. When the list was down
this past week it was so lonely without all of you. I hope I can come up with
something good and creative that I can share with you again soon!
