A Little Foot-weary, BUT...

There are 22 meals in the freezer!! Minus some eaten stew and chocolate chip cream cheese coffee cake. Which, can I just tell you, is uh-MAZE-ing!!!

We started sometime after 8 am and finished around...5:30 ish? The kitchen is still dirty, but that's darling husband is in there now helping clean up (he's wonderful).

The recipes we made really seemed like winners (we taste-tested along the way) and I'm excited to try them all. Eventually I'll have my own tried-and-true stash of recipes that are wonderful frozen.

I wish I could post pictures for you, but we are at a loss as to how to post the pictures from my phone.

By the way, I tried out my homemade taco seasoning that I made earlier this month in the Burritos, and it tasted great. :)

I'm going to soak in a hot bath tub. I'm worn out, but it was worth it. :)

Love, Alicia



  1. I can't believe there aren't pictures (kidding)! I checked your blog last month so I was excited to see pictures of the mess and the results. I think that is a bit strange on my part, don't you?

    Great job. I can't imagine how you do this with a little one around (I think I read that anyway). I love OAMC. I should have done it when my kids were little! It's still helpful when I am picking them up from after school activities.

  2. Have you frozen the coffee cake before? How does it turn out? I am wanting to try that this weekend and figure if I am going to make one loaf, might as well double or triple it if it freezes well.

  3. Mmm, the coffee cake sounds delish!

  4. Great job on your cooking! My mom and I just finished our day of freezer cooking and I can understand the title of your post...I'm a little foot-weary too!

  5. Amanda...we ate one of the loaves right away and froze the other. I actually pulled it out of the freezer today, so I can let you know tomorrow how well it freezes!

  6. Amanda, the bread does freeze VERY well. It's very moist, so I expected that!
    This "coffee cake" is so decadent that I'm thinking it's going to make some good Christmas gifts...:)

  7. Congrats! Sounds like you had a very successful day! That coffee cake sounds wonderful!

  8. Love the coffee cake recipe! I may try it soon! I love that it has all simple ingredients that we already have on hand. Thanks for sharing!
