Meal Prep Sundays; oatmeal raisin cookies and rice

Sundays are typically when I spend a few hours doing meal prep. For example, yesterday, I used my Cuisinart Digital Air Fryer again to make more fries.

I must say that I’m getting better at making them without burning the fries. The fries were crispy and flavorful. Unfortunately, there were only a few fries left. I only had a few fries since I wasn’t hungry; however, my daughter ate the majority that I’d prepared. Which, of course, made me feel great.


Meal Prep

Since we were out of cookie dough, I made more. This time I made oatmeal raisin cookies.

I’ve made enough of the oatmeal raisin cookie dough to make at least three dozen cookies. First, I placed the cookie dough onto wax paper, which I rolled into cylinders. Next, I placed cling wrap over the wax paper. The majority of the dough is headed for the freezer. Then, when my daughter wants fresh baked cookies, she can make them.

She made the above oatmeal raisin cookies about 1.5 hours after I’d made the dough. Since the dough had time to cool, they maintained its shape when she baked them in the oven. In addition to the cookies, I made homemade chocolate. I used cacao powder. Yes, I used the real deal, not that fake wanna-be chocolate that many companies passed off as the real thing.

About an hour before bedtime, I started prepping my rice by rinsing it thoroughly in my rice bowl and placing the cleaned rice into my Zojirushi rice cooker. I set it to be completed by 6:00 am.

When I came downstairs this morning, my cooked rice was ready. I love It always makes perfectly cooked rice every single time. My only regret is not having purchased one sooner.

I didn’t feel like making dinner after I got off of work at 6:00 today, and that’s perfectly fine. There’s plenty of food in the refrigerator for my daughter and the freezer. Since I do a lot of meal prep, there’s always a variety of food that we can choose. Some of the food is in the refrigerator; however, most of the food I place in the deep freezer.

I’m looking forward to drinking my hot chocolate this evening. I don’t drink alcohol; I find hot chocolate or herbal teas to be the perfect nighttime beverage.
