How Not to Eat Leftovers

I had a really long day at work yesterday so I was thrilled to be home and was not about to go back out to get dinner nor try and whip up a 4-course meal.

Luckily, I cooked a lot of baked penne pasta on Sunday. I did this on purpose because I wanted to be able to take the leftovers for lunch. Well I took some of the leftovers for lunch on Monday and I froze the rest. Since I never been no good at no fractions I put way too much pasta into one container.

I realize that it is going to take a lot to unfreeze my dinner and it would probably cause the microwave to blow up so I just defrosted it a little bit and opted to "cook" it in the oven, ya know like a DIY tv dinner. And once again my proportions were off......

It took like an hour to "cook" so I decided to refresh myself with a Bud Light, and every 10 minutes I would check on my dinner and I had to poke it with a fork, it was so stupid. I finally gave up and ate around the frozen parts...


And you didn't think you were reading a cooking blog........

    "Ate around the frozen parts..."
    Yes, there is a reason we get along....

  2. bahahaha barefoot contessa! seriously, she basically says that!
    I also have totally frozen everything when I should have separated. not a meal like that, but like when I've bough a big ass thing of chicken or meat and I just throw the whole thing in the freezer instead of separating dinner portions in bags or something. sucks. lol

  3. awe.. boooo. you just wanted an easy simple meal. Poor girl, damn pasta! haha
