My freezer cooking day last Saturday went fairly smoothly despite taking a four hour break in the middle of the day. I took this picture of the inside of my freezer; all of the items stacked on the shelf (on the left hand side) were from my freezer cooking day.
I took the picture this way because I wanted to show that it is possible to do freezer cooking even if you only have a small above the refrigerator freezer. Just put the contents in a ziplock bag, seal out the air, and lay flat on a shelf or cookie sheet to freeze. They really take up very little room when stacked like this.
Anyway, here is what I accomplished:
Darlene’s Make Ahead Meatballs (I made 125 of these, so that should be good for 6 different meals such as spaghetti and meatballs, sweet and sour meatballs, meatball subs, etc.)
Lighter Meatloaf (4 loaves)
Crab Cakes x2 didn’t get to these
Sloppy Joes for a Crowd (4 meal size portions)
Best Chili (2 meals) Loved this recipe!! I will be sharing it soon.
White Chili w/Tomato Salsa (2 meals)
Pulled BBQ Chicken (3 meals)
Sweet Potato Pear Soup (2 meals)
Stuffed Sweet Potatoes (3 side dishes)
Thai Style Turkey (2 Meals)
Bean Soup with Turkey & Veggies (3 Meals)
Savory Split Pea & Turkey Soup (2 Meals)
Many of these meals were new to us. As we try them, I will share the really good ones with you on my Monday recipe post.
