    Maybe this is the kind of thing you would only do if you have kids, but whenever I make paneakcs I make more than we’ll eat and freeze them. I make a stack with wax paper in between the paneakcs and put the whole thing in a quart sized freezer bag. They taste pretty good after twenty seconds in the microwave or a couple minutes in a toaster oven.
