Making enough to freeze
I love, love making extra food. Why? Because, I tend to be a lazy cook. I am also a parent, so sometimes other things can take precedent over cooking. When I make this recipe I always use a whole chicken and double the rest of the ingredients. It can take a few minutes longer to cook, but it is worth it. I freeze leftovers in Ziploc freezer bags or in Tupperware. Then, when life gets super busy, I can just pull the stew out of the freezer, thaw, heat and eat! I can’t tell you how many times this has saved me from needing to resort to making a frozen pizza.
