Last week B and I were making a recipe that required ¼ C of chicken stock. This always seems to happen with stock – it only comes in huge cans or boxes and you only need a little at a time. “Oh, no problem, don’t open a new can, we froze the last can that we used. Here – it’s right here, just put it in the pan.”
Flash forward ten minutes
B – Babyyyyyyy! Will you come in here?! … What the HELL is that because I KNOW it’s not chicken stock!
S – (laughing hysterically) “You’re right… it’s spaghetti squash!”
Solution? Chicken Stock ice cubes! We opened a new can of stock and poured the rest into an ice cube tray. So now we have a little zip loc bag of stock cubes ready for use and not to be confused with squash. And they’re so small that they’ll defrost in a just a few minutes in a pan. Clearly I’m freezer-obsessed and continue to find new ways for it to make our culinary life better!
Also, last day on the reader survey! It only takes about a minute and a half and it's anonymous!
