I know I have been absent from the blogging world. We bought this book online which was part of my birthday present. The title is “Don’t Panic Dinner’s in the Freezer”. We have already tried two recipes , Honey pork chops and London Broil. My husband loved both of the recipes. When I went to make the Honey Pork chops I could not find the honey. I almost gave up and then I saw the honey sitting on the counter top 🙂 I must say I almost panicked when I couldn’t find the honey.
I do not know why but I sat down to eat the Honey pork chops and I just was not hungry. I forced my self to eat a little bit of each item but overall I wasn’t thrilled with the recipe. I will have to try it again sometime to see if maybe it was just exhaustion talking.
The London Broil was very good and simple to make. I was very busy the day I made this particular recipe and my hubby randomly mentioned that I was cooking dinner…and my first thought was ….uhhh ohhh.. what do I do ?? Then I remembered the cook book “Don’t Panic…” it saved the day :).
These are probably recipes I will make in bulk next year and freeze.
