    Parchment is great for cooking lots of batches of Christmas cookies. Just have a few sheets and slide the sheet of baked cookies off to cool while you get the next batch in the oven faster. They through a lit of uses on cookies.

    I need to make some chicken, broccoli, and rice tomorrow.

    I'd make it tonight but hubby fell asleep as soon as he sat down down when he got home. I keep telling him to go to bed earlier

    Sounds like my taco salad. Lettuce and veggie salad in a bowl, topped with taco meat, black beans, salsa or taco sauce, sour cream, and crunched up Tostitos. Makes for a fast, yummy meal.

    Absolutely! I used a big 17" cast iron skillet instead of a baking pan. No lid. I think it helped with the browning on the bottom and there's no problem using it under the broiler.

    Honestly, when I was making it, I was thinking that it was going to be a flop. After I put the skillet under the broiler and that chicken started to get those little browned areas...well, it went from 'just okay' to stellar! Yum. I'm ready to make it again. Good luck- you'll probably love it, too.

    Left over chicken fried rice that I took out of the freezer, Asian veggie burgers.

    After our son leaves for Montana, I'm going to start checking into making more freezer meals.

    I'm totally worn out after working today. Have pizza crust rising. Don't even have the energy to go out and play in the garden for a bit. Tomorrow is a new day. Hoping a good night's sleep will recharge the batteries.
