And other times I just think I am… But, I’m sure you’ll agree that this is one of my better moments of genius.
You probably have deduced based on my previous posts that I am a soup fanatic. The truth is, although Hubby eats my soup without complaint, the kids just don’t enjoy it. And having a group of grmblers at the table (namely, the children) is enough to spoil my own enjoyment of the meal. So, since it’s just me and E-boy at home for lunch these days, I’ve been making soup for my lunch (and letting E-boy eat yogurt or PB&J).
Today I made Creamy Chicken with Rice (and homemade corn muffins on the side), and it was totally yummy. Here’s where the genius part comes in…I served the leftovers into these cups and put them in the freezer. Yes, my friends, I now have single-serving homemade soup just waiting in the freezer for my lunches. I did this the other day with my homemade chili, and it worked out awesome. Just take out a cup, remove the lid, and microwave for a couple minutes until it’s hot. Seriously, what better way to cheer up a dreary day than a nice hot soup lunch?
