So, after reading on a few blogs about freezer cooking and seeing how much easier it would be for me to be able to pull a “meal” from the freezer on a busy night, I decided to try it out!
In my first attempt at this freezer cooking I used what we already had at home. I learned a few things. I realized some things that I need to buy for next time. I have a plan for next time!
What I made..
3lbs of Taco Meat
3lbs of Hamburger seasoned with garlic, onion, and salt
1lb of Italian Seasoned Chicken
1lb of BBQ Chicken
Cinnamon Streusel Bread
36 Pancakes from scratch
Things I learned…
Clean as you go.
Don’t cook food when kids are hungry, they thought the pancakes were for lunch that day!
Chewing gum while cutting an onion does NOT keep you from tearing up!
Things I will need to buy for next time…
LOTS of plastic baggies
My Plan for next time…
Try out chicken burritos
Try making oatmeal packs
Buy lots of fruit to freeze for smoothies ( I should probably get a smoothie recipe also!)
I don’t know if I will do this weekly? I don’t know what other recipes would do well frozen that I could just pull out and “warm up”. I need to do a little more research along with trial and error!
