A Great Idea...

I'm always trying to think of the "perfect" dinner to bring to someone when I sign up on foodtidings. And I seem to always come back to some sort of casserole or something that can all be in one pan (which is great, and is usually what I end up bringing). But we just recently had a little one 7 weeks ago, and had the privelage of receiving many meals from friends and family (which has been AMAZING!). One of the meals we received was salmon with glazed carrots and caramel brownies. It was yummy! Here's the thing- the salmon was in a big ziplock baggie in a great brown sugar type marinade. It had directions labeled on it: if you freeze this, thaw it out overnight; once thawed, broil it for 6-8 minutes. It was a great idea- I don't have to always bring a casserole or a one pan or pot meal. I could marinate meat and put it in a big ziplock baggie with directions on it (either bake, broil, or grill). And then I could have some sort of veggie to go with it, and even a dessert. So there you have it- our tip for the day.
