Two weekends ago I decided to do a freezer cooking day to help us stay on track with our new monthly menu plan for this fall/winter. Luckily, my MIL Suzie was over and was able to help entertain Miss Elizabeth so I was able to complete all my tasks in record time!
Here is what I ended up putting in the freezer (all meals are sized for my family of three to eat one supper meal and have at least one portion of leftovers):
3 Meals of Swedish Meatballs with Gravy
3 Meals of Wild Rice Meatballs
3 Meals of Chicken Divan
3 Meals of Shepard's Pie
4 Pans of Beef Lasagna
4 Pans of Spinach Lasagna
3 Pints of Cream of Mushroom Soup
3 Meals of Beef Chili
2 Meals of Wild Rice Soup
4 Meals of 13 Bean & Ham Soup
3 Containers of Cooked Black Beans
2 Containers of Cooked Kidney Beans
It was quite an ambitious day, but I planned it out and made sure I had much of the prep work done in the days before, and it really went smoothly. For about 7 hours of work, we will have healthy food in our freezer and I plan that it will last us for the next three months.
