EXTREME FREEZER COOKING
My day one large family freezer meals prep day seemed very sensible with freezer cooking from about 1:30 pm to 9:30 pm. That time included my nursing baby breaks, clean up and chat time. If you missed it, you could read all that was accomplished here in my freezer cooking prep day.
Day two of my June large family freezer cooking day could be called extreme. That’s why I went ahead and have called day two my EXTREME FREEZER COOKING DAY. You can see in the vlog I didn’t get started until the late evening, around 7 pm. I joke in the video I spent Saturday “doing what I want” which included doing some behind the scenes work on the YouTube channel and going on a late afternoon hike with the kids.
Freezer Meal Recipes
- Large Family Chicken Pot Pie Freezer Meal – I made 4 large 11×18 baking pans full!
- Baked Egg Rolls Freezer Meal (I made TWO kinds!) – oh so many egg rolls 🙂 Made over 120!
- Baked Creamy Chicken Spaghetti Freezer Meal Recipe – I made 4 11×18 pans of this yummy bake.
- Sesame Orange Chicken Instant Pot Recipe (made ahead for the freezer) – 10 lbs in the freezer.
- Manicotti Freezer Meal Recipe – 4 large 11×18 pans, too!
- I skipped making the Sausage & Rice bake in favor of making the 2nd type of egg roll.
- I completed the low carb Pizza Casserole, but don’t have that blog post ready yet. Look for that shortly. 🙂 – 4 pans completed!
This comes out to be about 24 large family freezer meals that we’ll use as needed over the next 60 to 90 days. I love having meals ready to go in the freezer!
On my day one freezer cooking besides bulk cooking all the various meats and noodles for the day two meals listed above I also completed Large Family Mini Meatloaves Recipe, Quinoa Tortellini Sausage Soup, and Vegetable Beef Soup for the freezer! We’ll use the Mini Meatloaves mostly for some homeschool lunches and the soups are in hearty single serving containers.
Today’s #megamotherhood photo challenge word is SUNSHINE ☀️. It should have been “aftermath” due to #FreezerCooking until 3:21 a.m. (see prior posts & Instastories ??). After sleeping in until almost noon and taking the day slow, the only real sunshine I saw was streaming through the kitchen window as I tackled all my real life kitchen messes ?. Kitchen is all cleaned now ✅. Dishwasher running, lots of pots and pans hand-washed. Floors swept and steam mopping will happen after little kids go to bed. We’re grilling out steaks ?, asparagus, and hotdogs for the kiddies. Happy Saturday ❤️❤️❤️ #largefamily #largefamilytable
New Glass Baking Pans
I’ve been slowly adding glass baking dishes to my freezer cooking supplies collection. Here’s my Amazon affiliate link for the 11×18 baking dishes I’ve collected. You can do freezer meals in glass dishes if you follow the manufacturers’ recommendations. Just make sure you defrost your meals appropriately before placing them in your oven. And as always, make the best with what you have to work with in your kitchen!
