Good lunch tip
Laurel points out this post at Slashfood:
Biggie, the bento whiz over at Lunch in a Box, has a really cool tip on freezing individual portions of food for handy lunches.We’d expect no less from a woman who owns not one, but three, Japanese-language books on the art of freezing food (who knew?). She plops individual scoops of spaghetti into foil muffin liners, sprinkles on a little cheese and parsley, and freezes them in a big Tupperware container.
Then, when she’s making lunches, she can just take out a single serving, snug in its muffin liner so it won’t ooze all over the rest of the food in the bento box. They’re adorable, like little spaghetti cupcakes. The spaghetti will thaw on its own by lunchtime. I imagine this trick would work with any kind of pasta, mashed potatoes, risotto, etc. Clever.
So on Sunday, you can make and freeze the lunches for the week. Especially good if your workplace has a microwave oven to heat the hot foods.
