Ready, Set, Go!

I've got quite a list for today, although it doesn't seem that long when you look at it:

Post Office
Credit Union
Jeweler
2nd Chance Shop
Jewel (that's the grocery store)
Bizios (that's the fresh market)

Maybe the Library, but probably not.

I just inventoried the stuff going to the Second Chance Shop and it's in the in the car.

2nd Chance

There is always a bag going here for the Second Chance Shop  :-)

I have two recipes picked out to cook this weekend and freeze.  I'm going to try Linda's Black Beans, and I'm going to make my lasagna, which I already know freezes well.  Then I'm picking one chicken recipe from the Don't Panic book, so I have some in the freezer.  And I want to make some more of Linda's Refrigerator Pickled Beets.  They are SO GOOD, and I need a beet fix.  I also found a really good recipe for some scallops in one of my WW cookbooks, and I'm hoping to try it this week, too.

The one thing that I don't like from the recipes in the Don't Panic book, is that you have to remember to take the stuff out of the freezer to completely defrost in your fridge before you can cook it.  I'm wondering if there is a way to just put stuff from the freezer directly to the oven if I forget some night to pull something out for the next day.  Well, I won't be eating frozen stuff every night anyway  :-)

Will be off on my way shortly  :-)

It was :-) I really got a lot accomplished, which is such a good feeling.

The issue with cooking something straight from the freezer is internal temperature. The outside of the food could burn before the inside is done.
