Yes, I see that the issue is the life of the eggs. Does anyone have more to say about this? I will also be making my own breads soon..am interested in being able to make the dough on Sunday night, for example, and then cooking some Sunday night, Tuesday night and Thursday night. Can this be done? What about freezing cake batter, cookie dough or bread dough? I usually entertain at home because my Chinese friends are curious about western food. It also keeps me out of noisy, smoke filled restaurants :( I want to be able to plan a weekly menu that will let me do most of my cooking/food prep on Sunday nights. I will soon be buying a seal a meal to help me out, as well as looking into the possibility of a new, colder fridge. Any suggestions on how to manage this will be much appreciated.
