Freezer Cooking Results for August 12

Well, I didn't do a ton of freezer cooking today, but we got some accomplished which was the plan! I made a huge batch of whole wheat waffles for my kids to have for breakfast before school. I think it made about 27 Belgian waffles. At 1 huge waffle each for breakfast with some fruit, that should last for 9 mornings! I don't think that's bad at all considering I have three kiddos and limited freezer space!
We also made enough peanut butter sandwiches for the kids to have for a week of lunches! Now I know it doesn't take a long time to make a peanut butter sandwich but when we are making three every evening and making coffee and laying out clothes and cooking supper and doing our chores and everything else we do to get ready for our day...well, you know. It's just nice to not have one more thing to worry about! We plan to do this most every week (my kids love peanut butter sandwiches).
Soooo, our tally is: 27 Belgian waffles and 15 peanut butter sandwiches for a very short amount of time on a Saturday afternoon--plenty of time left to play!!
