freezer cooking challenge – day 1

Wow, I managed to accomplish a lot more than I thought I would today. The grocery store was a bit frustrating and I wasn’t sure this was the right day for it, but everything came around. I decided to switch up a few things. I opted to not make the Salisbury steaks because ground beef was a little to pricey this week. I also opted to cook and shred the BBQ chicken before freezing it instead of freezing it raw with the sauce.

So. Let’s talk about what I got done, shall we? In the freezer I currently have:

  • Chicken oreganata
  • Pineapple lemon chicken
  • 1 lb. turkey taco meat
  • Italian dressing marinated chicken
  • Cooked, shredded BBQ chicken
  • Sausage, egg & cheese breakfast sandwiches (x6)

Right now I have applesauce cooking overnight in the Crock Pot, so that will be ready in the morning (my four-year-old is thrilled about this!). I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it or not, but they had apples on the discounted produce rack. So since they were the deal of the day, I knew I had to make applesauce with them. Tomorrow I’ll tackle the baked oatmeal, French toast sticks, apple handpies, and chicken stock. I might have to put off the pea soup; my freezer is looking a little packed already.

But now I’m off to wind down with a cup of tea and a paczki. I think I’ve earned it!
