I am tired of cooking all day- Meal Entree Exchange:
I would love to get together with my very best friends, but, since we are all so busy, how about we work together and also have time to visit!
@ My house, Jan,1, 1111 starting at 6 pm
Details: Each person brings over one homemade entree (enough to serve 4 people) frozen. Place the entree in a disposable tin, covered with plastic wrap first and then aluminum foil. (to prevent freezer burn) Mark directions to reheat on the foil.
We will be doing the exchange while visiting, enjoying cocktails, and snacks.
Please make sure and RSVP 10 days prior to make sure we have enough food to exchange. (So if you have 10 people coming, make 10 frozen dishes) which obviously includes one for yourself that you will leave at home in your freezer. The best part of this is now you have 10 meals for your family and a ladies' get-together!
Some groups may choose to make all the meals together at the get-together, but personally, I feel it can get confusing in the kitchen and most people know how to make one entree really well in their own kitchen. You time is cut significantly since you are making a large batch of the same item and splitting it up instead of making 10 separate entrees with individual cook times and lots of ingredients. Also, the get-together is spent relaxing and not having to cook anything!
Make sure you ask for any allergies from your guest and send it out so no one cooks with that ingredient.
