Freezer Cooking Day 2—Finished! December 3, 2009

“We did it, we did it, we did it……Hooray!!”  (Sung the way Dora sings it on Dora the Explorer!!)

My list is completed!!!  It might not have been a super hefty list to begin with, but it sure feels GREAT to have my freezers stocked full, and some Christmas goodies made!!

After the ‘Intermission,’ I put the kiddos down for a nap……Anna was the only one who didn’t quite want to do it!  But, I did have a good hour by myself to clean up and start on the Meatloaves.  Then, after that, Anna was my cutie kitchen helper!

Here’s what I accomplished this afternoon:

  • 2 pans of Meatloaf—CHECK!

In the past, I would have baked them, let them cool, wrap them and put them in the freezer, already baked, but I didn’t think they tasted as fresh and good.  So, I wrapped them up, unbaked, and will bake them when I pull them out.

  • Last batch of World’s Easiest Christmas Candy—CHECK!

I tried to be spontaneous with this batch, and I used White and Milk Chocolate chips on top……yikes!  I forgot that White Chocolate Chips are a little different, and they don’t melt well or SPREAD well!  So, this batch didn’t turn out as pretty, but it tastes gooooooood!

  • Moist Pumpkin Spice Muffins—CHECK!

If you are looking for a yummy, moist, delicious muffin—-this one’s for you!!!

So, here’s the fruits of my labor today:

  • 2 loaves of Banana/Pumpkin Bread
  • Spicy Lentil Soup
  • Moist Pumpkin Spice Muffins
  • 2 Batches of ‘Almond Roca’
  • 2 pans of Meatloaf

This 2-day Freezer Cooking spree was a really great experience!!  It was fun for me, fun for the kids to get involved–they love helping me in the kitchen, and it’s a JOY to have a full freezer!!  I have a feeling I may just try to keep this up!  Thanks for joining me!!!!
