This weekend I'll be attempting some kind/form of freezing/baking day. Moneysavingmom and Life as Mom are hosting a Freezing Day event.
However, I realized I do freeze cooking better in "batches"; that is, in different days...maybe not as daunting at first.
For eg, we cooked Japanese curry last week and I made more so that I can freeze some. We also made our own dumplings and I froze half of them and we ate the other half. These are the food already in the freezer.
This Sat (till next week), I'm intending to progressing cook/bake the following for freezing:
* Oatmeal Cereal (Rolled oats cooked in milk)
-These are lunches for my older kids. We add steamed sweet potatoes, or pumpkins or raisins to it.
* Pizza dough
- We like MSM's recipe
* Banana nut bread
* Pasta sauce
-Diced Tomatoes, tomato paste, sausage, diced green peppers, onions, mushroooms, brown sugar and spices. Simmer for at least an hour for the best taste. We LOVE our own recipe of pasta sauce!
* If I have time: maybe another batch of black beans and rice burritos
-this recipe is AMAZING. I use the filling and eat them as burritos instead of enchilada. We love it alot and we use brown rice for it
Doesn't seem like a lot at all, because I'm very new to this and also my freezer doesn't seem to be able to take in so much food
