I LOVE to try new recipes. All.the.time! The good news - we get to taste a variety of flavors. The bad news - is there really any bad news associated with this? :)
This past Tuesday was Pancake Day! YUM!!! So, I decided to make pancakes for dinner! The kids were so excited - so was I!

their suggestion, and prepare a few of the pancake mixes ahead of time. To do this, simply take a ziploc bag, pour the dry ingredients into the bag, seal it up and use a sharpie to write the wet ingredients that need to be added the the dry mix on the outside of the bag (be sure to date and label the bag with the name of the recipe!). I labeled the bag BEFORE I poured in the dry ingredients - it is a little easier to write on a flat surface - and used a sandwich sized bag! I made up five of these bags, then put the sealed bags into a large gallon ziploc bag. To keep the ingredients fresh, I will place this bag into my freezer, mark it on my freezer inventory sheet...and I just completed some "freezer cooking/preparation." Then, when I feel like making pancakes, I will save myself a few minutes of time by simply grabbing one of these already prepared bags of dry ingredients!
