Freezer Cooking Progress: Day 2

The second day of my freezer cooking was long and tiring.  It was on Thursday.  I needed a few days to recover before I wrote anything about it.  As we have sat down to eat dinner for 2 nights in a row, I have found myself very thankful for all the hard work of preparation.  It has made my time in the kitchen faster and smoother.  Here is a run down of what all I accomplished:

  1. Cooked an entire package (5lbs) of ground beef and sealed it in my food saver bags.
  2. Made an entire package (5lbs) of ground beef into meatballs and sealed it in my food saver bags.
  3. Made an entire package (5lbs) of ground beef into hamburger patties, quick froze them on a cookie sheet in the freezer, and sealed them in my food saver bags.
  4. Made an entire package (5lbs) of ground beef into 3 large meatloafs, quick froze them, and sealed them in my food saver bags.
  5. Cooked and shredded 2 large packages of chicken quarters (10 total).
  6. Cooked a beef roast with barbeque sauce and froze it.
  7. Cooked beef stew meat with a red wine and mushroom sauce and froze it.
  8. Made 7 packages of muffin/quick bread mixes.
  9. Made barbeque sauce and canned it.
  10. Cooked great northern beans,  made white chicken chili and froze it.
  11. Put together a chinese salad (veggies chopped yesterday) for dinner.
  12. Cleaned as I went today, making the job so much easier.

thank for commenting on my blog Debbie! I am so glad you enjoyed it. Celee is just wonderful, huh? anyhow, the four loaf pan was a gift given to me and it is made by pampered chef. I can't wait to read this stuff on freezer cooking!

OOH, you are amazing! Would you be interested in sharing your white chili recipe? I need to avoid tomatoes, so this would be a great alternative.

I will post recipes soon. The chicken chili is very easy. I just cook great northern beans in chicken broth, add green chilies, spices to your liking, and monterey jack cheese. Soooo easy and yet one of my favorite!
