Well, sort of.
I mentioned in my OAMC To-Do List post that I was pretty sure I was being overly ambitious in my Freezer Cooking Day this month. And I was right.
We did end up having quite a bit of snow (and ice) so we were stuck in the house all weekend. That gave me a great opportunity to get quite a bit done. Well…I’m not sure I’d say quite a bit. More like some done.
But there are a few more items in our freezer that would not have been there otherwise. I’m sure it will save us from take-out/drive-thru at least a few times in the month of February!
So here is what I accomplished:
Make a double batch of Homemade Biscuit Mix Roast 2 Whole Chickens in the Oven – bag a large majority of it
Actually I ended up roasting FOUR! I made almost 2 whole 8-lb. chickens into chicken salad and several freezer meals to take to a new mama and a mama with a very sick new baby. I kept the other two for our freezer.
Make 2 enormous batches of homemade chicken stock
One is still in the crockpot and I’m waiting for it to finish. The other is in the freezer.
Brown ground beef and bag for casseroles
Three 2 1/2 cup portions in the freezer
Double Batch of Meatballs
- Chicken/Broccoli/Rice Casserole x 2
- Chicken Ring x 2
I wasn’t able to get to the Chicken/Broccoli/Rice Casserole or the Chicken Ring. I have all of the ingredients already in the fridge, I just need to get them put together. So that is high on my to-do list for today!
I’ll post the recipe for the Chicken Ring (oh so yummy!) later today since someone asked for it. And hopefully I’ll get the recipe for the Homemade Biscuit Mix posted because it makes the best pancakes I’ve literally ever eaten.
How did your freezer cooking go?
I had a hard time getting everything accomplished this month. I have to keep reminding myself what a huge blessing it is to go shop in my freezer for supper. Gosh, I love it. And that makes all of the hard work well worth it!
Did I mention my kitchen looked like this last night?
It’s better this morning, but not better enough to take ‘after’ pictures!
