Freezer Cooking Results for the Weekend of September 2-4

When I thought about freezer cooking this weekend I really hadn’t planned on too much—a couple batches of chili, a batch of waffles, and my usual pb & j sandwiches for the kids’ lunches. I’m not sure what happened after that but this freezer cooking session just kinda sprouted legs and came alive! It wasn’t one day or even a day and a half—over two days worth of cooking!!

Here is the yield from this labor-fest…

2 meals worth of white chili

1 meal worth of regular chili

25 whole wheat Belgian waffles

3 loaves of whole wheat cranberry bread (one of which has nearly been devoured by our family for breakfast!)

2 batches of chocolate protein bars—16 servings

2 batches of carrot cake protein bars—16 servings

1 batch of cinnamon swirl protein bars—8 servings

12 sandwiches for the kids lunches—Thank goodness for the 4 day week this week! I ran out of peanut butter!!

10 cups of chicken broth (besides what was used in the white chili)

2 (2 cup) bags of black beans

2 (2 cup) bags of shredded chicken

2 shepard’s pies

2 bags of breaded okra (fresh from the garden—really, I hadn’t planned on this item but my mother-in-law called and asked if we wanted any okra and we of course said—YES!)

4 (2 cup) bags of white rice

2 lunch-sized servings of white chili

4 lunch-sized servings of regular chili


Let me just add…I am completely worn out!!!!! And yes, I did post this after 1 am—I just finished putting the last of the food into the freezer! Thank goodness I didn’t fix any more food because the freezers are packed to the gills!!!
