  • Frozen Lunch Pucks

    April 25th, 2017
    food  [html]
    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.)

    Quick note on the name of this blog

    When I was 21 a friend introduced me to a volume of poems by the 14th-century Persian poet Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky. I loved them, and eventually named this blog for one of my favorite ones. At some point I read more and found that Ladinsky’s …
