Freezer Cooking Wrap Up

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.

  1. I don’t have a big freezer, either. And that is my excuse for not to do bulk cooking… I am surprised how much things you can put in your small freezer! My freezer is occupied with big bags of frozen vegetables from Costco, but I will try to do some freezer cooking following your example. Thanks for sharing!

    • Yes, I do cook it beforehand. Then, when I pull it out of the freezer, I just reheat it, usually in the microwave.

      • I was going to ask the same question! Good to know, I was thinking a good meatloaf with mashed potatoes sounded really good (totally the pregnancy talking LOL) so I might try to get one or two into the freezer.

  2. Good Lord! I need stock my freezer the way you do. All we have in there is some coffee and I think that’s it. :-) We are not big on freezer cooking. But it is a great idea to contemplate!
