WHEW . . . . I'm Done!!!!

Here's how my freezer cooking went!!

  • Tuesday night I roasted a Turkey (that's been in the freezer since Thanksgiving!).     We had Turkey for supper, then I picked the rest of the meat off the bone.  I set aside enough for Colorful Chicken Casserole.  I packaged and froze turkey for stirfry and to be mixed in Fettucine Alfredo.  I had an extra bag of turkey for a future meal and cooked the carcass in the crockpot overnight, covered in water - ready made stock!!
  • Wednesday I made turkey noodle soup with the turkey stock.  While I was chopping veggies for the soup I went ahead and chopped all the veggies I needed for my recipes.  I also went ahead and cut up my chicken and threw it in a marinade with onions and peppers for fajitas.
  • Thursday I got an early start (for me) and was able to finish everything!!  
Here's the meals I have for the freezer:
  • Calzones
  • Breadsticks and alfredo sauce (to go with soup)
  • BBQ Chicken Pizza
  • Colorful Chicken Casserole (2 batches)
  • Meatloaf (2 batches)
  • Fajitas (including homemade tortillas - my first time making them!!)
  • Stirfry
  • Chimichangas
  • Lasagna (2 batches)
  • Stromboli
  • Sloppy Joes
  • Meat precooked for:  Haystacks, chili, baked potato bar, and spaghetti
  • Biscuits (to go with chipped beef gravy)
  • Noodles (my first time to make these as well)
  • 2 loaves of garlic bread
  • 1 loaf of bread dough
Now, I'm going to put my feet up and relax!!  Next week I'll post some tips to make your own Once a Month Cooking Day successful!
