I love the fall and the great food that comes along with it; so many opportunities to create wonderful soups, stews and curries. Since the cold weather brings larger appetites, large batches are a must.
Making large quantities of things more often than not means left overs and plenty of them in my house. Leftovers are a great way to make your life easier. It allows you the freedom to take a night off from cooking once in a while or have a hearty lunch at work with out having to order take-out. When I make beef stew, chicken soup or curry I know they will freeze well so that’s exactly what I do. Taking aside enough for a meal and freezing it helps keep a variety of healthy and affordable quick dinner options at the ready and I recommend trying it if you don’t already do so.
This week I made an easy chicken curry and rice dish that my whole family enjoyed. Since it takes so long to cook this dish I was sure to freeze a portion. I feel good knowing it’s in my freezer for that cold fall evening when we are busy and tired. Remember a recipe is only a guideline, you can always sub in vegetables for chicken if you have preferences or dietary restrictions. Please enjoy!
