When juggling work, errands, meetings, practices, and carpools, dinner planning is often the last thing on our minds. Everyday Food has the solution: a collection of recipes that can be prepped in advance and frozen, so a home-cooked meal is always just an oven away.
Spread this sauce on our Turkey Sandwich. This recipe makes a generous amount of the sauce, but it also tastes great
with other dishes, such as grilled vegetables, pasta, and seafood (especially shrimp and halibut). If you like, you can freeze it in ice cube trays and transfer the cubes to a separate container for future use.
This recipe was created with flexibility in mind, and is a great way to use up leftover ingredients. Adjust the quantity of the ingredients depending on what you have, the flavors you like, and the number you're serving. This photo shows three variations of ingredients: cilantro and almonds; parsley, walnut, and Parmesan cheese; and basil, pine nut, and Parmesan cheese.
The end of a holiday meal can be daunting. Exhausted and stuffed, you might be ready to simply toss any leftovers and call it a day. But wait -- with a bit of strategizing and creativity, superb meals lie in your future. The real question, of course, is which dishes will hold up in the freezer and which should be enjoyed immediately. Not to fear, our food editors are here to distinguish between the two groups. So grab your zip-top bags and airtight containers -- as well as your forks and knives -- and get ready for the ultimate dish debate: Eat vs. Freeze -- Thanksgiving Leftovers Edition.
