Frozen Lunch Pucks

April 25th, 2017

Now that I'm no longer at Google I'm making my own lunches. One thing I've been doing that I'm pretty happy with is making single serving "pucks" that I can freeze:

I'll pick something that I think would be good with lunches, like a cheese sauce or (pictured) a tomato sauce. Then I'll cook it for dinner, making an even larger amount then usual: enough for our 6-9 people, plus leftovers, plus ~2 muffin tins worth. I'll freeze them, then pop them out of the muffin tins and re-bag them. Then it's back into the freezer until I want one with lunch:

I like this much better than keeping food at fridge temperatures, because I don't have any anxiety over whether I'll eat something before it goes bad. Off for holidays or vacation several days next week: not a problem! Similarly, if there are extra leftovers from other dinners I can easily eat those instead if that works better, and I don't need to plan in advance.

(Can be combined with the Peter Special. I usually put these on pasta with salad spinach.)
