My husband will be very glad that I used the mixer that we got as a wedding gift (it sits on the counter most of the time-but I tell him that in the future when I am cooking for more than just two and when I learn more about baking I'll use it).
I bought one large green pepper which was much more than I needed for the chicken tetrazinni recipe. I learned on Money Saving Mom's blog that you can freeze green pepper when it is chopped up. So, I chopped up the whole pepper, used part of it, and froze the rest. Evidentally, you can freeze a lot of leftover things (today I froze the extra chicken broth). This is great news for people cooking for two!
The final results: large pan of Easy Chicken Bake, large bag of Chicken Tetrazinni, large pan of Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice Casserole, and 4.5 dozen cookies!
