|Spaghetti Noodles prepped for Chicken Spaghetti|
Last week I conducted a smaller scale freezer cooking day. Since my hubby was in class (and thus unable to watch the little one), I did a big chunk of my cooking during Squishy's two hour nap.
Here's how the day went down:
Pre-naptime: Baked 8 lbs of chicken, fried bacon for 2 Crustless Quiches.
Naptime: Assembled 2 quiches, deboned chicken.
In spurts throughout the late afternoon: Made Cream of Mushroom Soup (for Chicken Spaghetti) and finished deboning the chicken. Did I mention that deboning chicken is true love? I dream of one day buying boneless skinless chicken thighs! :D
After Squishy's bedtime: Boiled noodles for Chicken Spaghetti. Assembled Chicken Spaghetti.
Note to self for next time: Stop while you are ahead! Assembling the Chicken Spaghetti so late at night did me in. I was too tired to think clearly after making it. Here's hoping I didn't add too much cayenne pepper in my stupor...!
|Quick Crustless Quiche|
|Cheddar Cheese Soup With Veggies|
The finished results of my cooking day(s)?
4 8x8 pans of Chicken Spaghetti
4 cups of cooked chicken (for future Chicken Pot Pie)
2 batches Cheddar Cheese Soup With Veggies
2 Quick Crustless Quiches
The makings of 10 meals. I normally do more, but my freezer is STUFFED.
Based off of my freezer cooking and my monthly menu plan, our menu this week should look something like this:
Breakfasts: Oatmeal, Cold Cereal, Banana Bread
Lunches: Leftovers, Salads
Dinners by Weeknight:Monday--Valentine's Day Dinner~Homemade Sushi
Tuesday--Thai Coconut Soup with Butterhorn Rolls
Wednesday--Burritos or leftovers
Thursday--Chicken Pot Pie and roasted asparagus (thanks facebook followers for all of your veggie suggestions!)
Saturday--Parmesan Tilapia and Broccoli
Sunday--Stuffed Pasta Shells and green beans
I've loved reading the comments and emails from those of you who have recently attempted freezer cooking for the 1st time! Awesome. I hope you enjoy the fruits of your labor. :)
I'm curious...what's on the menu for dinner at your house this Valentine's Day?
P.S. Here's how we started Valentine's Day--fresh, hot donuts from Krispy Kreme at 6:30 am!
