Freezer Cooking Day/s May 2010

My freezer at the end of the day. I think if I rearrange things well enough, I might still have space for another 2 or more casserole meals.

So we began. My first official "freezer cooking day". I've done bits and pieces of freezer cooking before, but this time it's alittle more intentional. Still I found that I might have done it quite differently than many others. I "stole" time to cook instead of allocating a whole chunk of time. That's in view of our circumstances. It worked this time! I still had quite some food frozen (not as much as most people) and I didn't have a massively dirty kitchen.

Here's how my two days of "freezer cooking day" went.

FRIDAY

Noon.
While preping for lunch and all, I cooked oatmeal cereal. (Rolled oats cooked in milk and water)


That's 6 meals for my 2 older kiddos (4yr and 2 yrs). We usually add steamed sweet potato or pumpkin or raisins to the oatmeal and they love them as lunches.

Afternoon.
I made the
oat chocolate chip walnut cookie dough with the kids, as part of our day.
As per the reviews, some changes made to the recipe and here's my modified version.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt (should cut this)
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I possibly added a little more)

Evening/night.
While my hubby played with the kids after dinner, I baked the chocolate chip cookies and made the
banana bread.




After the kids slept and I cleaned the kitchen, I made the pizza dough. Wanted to double the recipe, but i realized that hubby (who was grocery shopping) will bring back A LOT of meat, so my freezer might be too full. So made one batch (that's for 2 pizzas, enough for 2 meals)

Here's how I make doughs. I used the plastic bags (you get from grocery stores to put in veg...which is not necessary)...cut it open and knead the dough IN IT. (put flour on it, and then the water etc). THEN I "closed" the bag up and put in the freezer. NO MESS on the table or my fingers!! This is the best tip my mom taught me.




SATURDAY
In the morning, halfway between breakfast and cleanup, I...

...cut up the HUMONGOUS sparerib that hubby got yesterday into pieces and froze them

...prep the ingredients for pasta sauce (cut up and remove sausage from casing, froze the rest)

...and I made my hubby's favorite black bean and rice burrito. (except I don't have pepper but I have corn!) I do everything the same, except it's not as an enchilada but burrito. (did 10 burritos)















Evening.

Hubby cooked up his famous pasta sauce. Me, the souz chef, has cut up the ingredients for him.

Ingredients for pasta sauce

*diced peppers
*mushroom
*onions
*sausage (remove from casing)
*diced tomatoes (can)
*tomato paste
*brown sugar
*spices (like basil, oregano, parsley, rosemary)
Simmer for an hour.
