This is a necessary kick in the pants for me. I have a small freezer and use a good portion of it for vegetables and two loaves of bread each month. I wanted a week or ten days of dinners ready for post-baby and made a good start. I bought some chicken thighs on sale and made some dinners (some in a tomato sauce and others were in a spinach, mushroom and rice dish), which will be easy to heat up and side with the vegetables.
Then we got caught up in unpacking and I went into denial, apparently and thought I had all the time in the world. Life As Mom’s Freezer Cooking Day came at the right time.
My plan (hope) for this weekend is to cook and freeze the following:
- Apple crisp (two for family desserts and some mini crisps for a quick and tasty individual breakfasts)
- Chicken coconut curry (at least two meals)
- Prepare chicken stock
It’s not much but it will get me through some days and I think it will fill what space I have in my freezer. What are you freezing this weekend?
