The decision has been made to spend all day tomorrow making eggplant parmesan . . lots of it. I can use up some tomatoes, some fresh basil, some eggplant, onions, garlic . . everything that I grew in the garden. This evening we ran to Wal-Mart because I needed ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese. I was planning to freeze the batches in pyrex dishes, dump it once it’s frozen, put it in individual Foodsaver bags but while at Wal-Mart, I saw half sheet cake size foil pans with lids . . 3 or 4 per pack for 94¢ per pack. That’s so cheap . . I’m going to put the parmesan in there and wrap it really tightly with heavy duty aluminum foil and leave it. If I see that it’s getting frosty or freezer burned, I can always dump what’s remaining and freeze them individual Foodsaver bags. I’m thinking I’ll get at least 10 dishes of eggplant parmesan plus I’m making some caponata and going to try freezing it with just the eggplant, tomatoes, basil and oil.
I guess it’s been several weeks since I was in our Wal-Mart but they’ve added about 8 or 10 self-check registers. I love those things! The Wal-Mart in MO had them and took them out. The helper told me that they had them here once and took them out. If I have to go to Wal-Mart, I prefer to go early in the morning . . around 7 or 8, but there are few checkers that time of the morning. Now I can zip in and get my items, check myself out, bag it the way I want to bag it and be on my way.
Doesn’t take much to make me happy, huh?
