Kitchen Tip: Freeze!

Last night was the weekly Kid's Night here at our house. We started doing these a while back after our pastor encouraged families to do so. I love it because it reminds us to spend an entire evening focused on our daughter and nurturing our relationship with her. It just seems way too easy to spend evenings caught up in to-do lists or zoning out in front of the tv than having quality family time.
So one night during the week, Lillian gets to pick what's for dinner and the entire list of activities that we do from when her Dad gets home from work to bedtime at 8:30.

Last night she picked colorful pancakes and sausage for dinner, a water balloon fight, and a movie.

Since we had quite a few griddle cakes leftover, I thought this was a good time to share with y'all my tip for storing leftover pancakes.

Just lay the pancakes flat in a single layer inside a plastic freezer bag or container. Then top that layer with wax paper and add another layer. Repeat until all the pancakes are packaged up. The wax paper keeps them from freezing together. Later on, you can just pull out exactly the number of pancakes you need and thaw them in the microwave - easy!

Click here for an awesome griddle cake recipe I found in an old country cookbook. It's yummy. :)

  1. I've honestly never made my own cakes to freeze. You don't have to undercook them or anything to keep 'em from getting too chewy? Awesome to know!


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
