Day One of Freezer Cooking


 I mentioned last week that I am going to participate in Money Saving Mom's and Fish Mama's popular Freezer Cooking Day on Monday.  Since I am a newbie to this, I decided to get a jump start and cross off a few items on my list today! 


As you can see by my list, here's what I accomplished so far:


I got all my veggies chopped.



All of my hamburger is browned, placed in one pound containers, and in the freezer.


My carrots are steamed, blanched, packaged into 1 cup servings, and frozen.

 

And this tired little helper is finally taking a nap!

OK, so my littler helper wasn't really that much help, but she was very cooperative as mommy cooked and daddy prepared the taxes. 

I am going to change my plans for tomorrow a little.  Instead of making freezer lasagna, I am going to make 3 dinners of tuna casserole.  I am also going to make one batch of banana nut muffins instead of two, and try a new Raisin Bran muffin recipe.  (I have 28 boxes of cereal and I need to come up with ways to use them.  Do you have any ideas?)

Share this!
