Sorry for not writing many posts lately, it's that crazy time of year plus my three daughters are on school holidays so I'm enjoying spending time with them.
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. Does anyone have lots of ham, turkey and chicken leftover from Christmas lunch? Are you sick of eating them? Don't forget that you can slice up the meat and freeze it in usable portions. They can then be defrosted and used in lots of ways:
- sandwich or toastie fillings
- in a fritatta or quiche with other vegetables and/or cheese
- add the chicken or turkey to a Caesar salad
- add to a creamy pasta sauce
- use as a pizza topping, etc
And on a different topic ... are you going to a fancy New Years Eve party, or hosting one at home? Make life a little easier for yourself and prepare some finger foods or canapes in advance and freeze them. That's how I normally cater for a cocktail party as I hate spending the whole time in the kitchen. Sometimes I'll even hire our babysitters to reheat/cook all the food that I had prepared and frozen, then pass it around. It was so much easier as the hostess!
There are plenty of finger food recipes in the FROST BITE book and a couple here on the blog:
Filo logs with roasted capsicum, feta and basil
Enjoy your New Years Eve celebrations!
