They refer to it as knit about five times. Sheesh.

are they just being cheeky?

that recipe sounds great!

i made a casserole i like to call "trashy broccoli", because it has got to be one of the unhealthiest treatments of broccoli around short of being deep fried (it's not deathly, but still... all the stuff together)

parboil some broccoli florets in salted water, drain and set aside or, chop the broccoli up REALLY finely, and skip the parboiling.

mix together mayonnaise, grated sharp cheddar, and some pepper. stir in the broccoli.

the additions are what make it great. i like to add in 1/2 a jar of hormel real bacon bits. i also like to top it with crushed up saltines and sometimes frenchfried onion strips. a plain salted potato chip topping would likely taste great, too. bake until hot and bubbly and top is browned (about 30-45 min at 350)

people just seem to go crazy for this stuff!

also- on the chocolate theme- truffles are so easy, and look great given away in teeny pails, baskets, etc.

i don't have a recipe off hand, but it's basically whipping (heavy) cream melted with chocolate, chill, roll into balls (or use a melon baller- it's surprisingly easy this way). coat in sprinkles, flaked coconut, chopped nuts, plain cocoa, etc.

jars of trail mix type stuff is always appreciated. i love that recipe for chex mix (or whatever it is) where you coat the cereal mixture in a seasoning made of tabasco, salt, lemon juice, garlic and onion powders, etc and then bake it all until it's crispy. yum! i could eat it all day.

i also made a post about christmas bark (melted white chocolate poured over dried cranberries and toasted almonds in a baking sheet, chilled, then smashed into pieces for giveaways).

and, some may not like her, but some of her recipes are great- martha's website is a great candy/giveaway snacks resource.

This is maybe a stupid question, but how do you store the individual portions? Do you have a billion tupperware containers? Or use freezer bags? Just wondering. Whenver I try to freeze anything I forget to divide it into manageable portions and I end up with an iceberg size block of, say, pasta sauce Smiley

Lunch is hard!

for individual portions of the liquid stuff, i like to take medium ziploc baggies, fill them with one portion, then squeeze out all the air and seal them. then to freeze them, i lay them flat on the freezer "floor". i usually stack them up several at a time- but this way they lay flat and lots of them fit in the freezer door.

for the stuff i freeze in muffin tins, i'll fill up the tins, freeze them, pop them out when they;re frozen and just store them all in a baggie. then i just use them as i need them.

i hope that helps explain it a bit!  Smiley

i have the same problem, but mine specifically is that i dilly-dally in the mornings. deciding what to make for lunch, then making it, etc takes up too much time, and then i'm REALLY running behind!

finally got smart and started making things like big pots of soups, stews, curries, chili, etc and freezing them in individual portions. i just grab one out of the freezer in the mornings, and ta da! lunch! the bonus is, they defrost by lunch, and stay cool all morning, so refrigeration isn't really an issue if you don't have access to one.

i also started making crockpots of sauces, and then freezing portions of sauce in muffin tins. i make a single serving of pasta, one "muffin tin" of sauce is the perfect size and voila! no fuss pasta.

i also buy mini pita breads and freeze those, too, and just pop them out of the freezer to make egg salad sandwiches or tuna salad sandwiches when i'm in a rush.

i also made some muffins and froze them in big containers, so that as i head out the door i grab a few of those too for breakfast once i get to work.

if i didn't do it this way i would spend an unholy amount of money on takeaway. it makes making lunches so easy, i don't even have to think about it anymore! hth   Smiley

i've seen some with a sugary broiled walnut frosting. i think it's  a variation of the pecan/coconut one.

a simple buttercream frosting would work well, too and be super yummy!
