Out of the Blue

I've talked in the past about getting a pressure cooker to be able to can food, but that semi-idle thought is boiling over at the moment, so to speak, as we are a little inundated with stuff that will spoil before long. In a bit of uncoordinated planning, I made three quarts of chili over the weekend, and MrsBlue roasted a half-dozen chicken breasts last night (so four are leftover). This all goes in the fridge along with a quart of my nascent attempt at a Bolognese ragł, a quart of marinara sauce made by MrsBlue, and one or two other things I can't recall off the top of my head. So the pressure is on for us to finish this off before it goes bad, and certainly before either of us cooks anything else. Oh well, the food is all excellent, so we'll just have to "suffer."

You can probably freeze the chili and ragu, and the marinara too. I don't think the chicken breasts would fare so well if frozen - might end up tough and tasteless - but I'm not sure.

Chicken is surprisingly one of the best things to freeze, doesn't affect the taste and lasts forever if you use a decent freezer bag. I eat chicken as a protein component for easily half of my meals in a week, I usually take out 5 frozen chicken breasts on a Saturday night, let them defrost in the fridge then cook them for the week on Sunday.
