If you’re like me, fall and winter mean pulling out the pots – the large ones, that is – for soups, stews, pulled this and braised that.
I LOVE one-pot winter meals for many reasons – not the least of which is that most can be made in advance. And actually taste better after sitting overnight.
Years and years ago a family friend shared this tip with me, and it’s a great one if you do a lot of “one-pot” cooking too:
Once your dish has cooled down enough to go into the fridge, slip a piece of waxed paper between the lid and the pot. Any condensation that occurs will collect on the paper – and stay there, instead of dripping back into your food.
Simply remove and discard the paper when you go to reheat your meal.
If you’re of the belief that it’s the “little details” that count, you’ll appreciate the difference this small change makes.
With Thanksgiving and Hanukkah converging this week, I’d like to take a moment to wish all of you a very happy holiday – or holidays – however you may be celebrating. I am thankful for so many things this year, and am so VERY thankful for you – my readers. Your comments, e-mails and support of my little blog truly means the world to me.
And of course, Babble links!
