I did A LOT of cooking this past weekend...but don't have anything to really show for it and can't even recommend any recipes since we haven't tasted anything yet! I was busy making recipes to put away in the freezer for either the last couple weeks of pregnancy when I might not feel like hitting the grocery store or making meals and/or for some easy meals once our daughter arrives!
All in all, I made 7 different entrees. This was my first time experimenting with bulk cooking but I think I could really get into it. If you're interested, moneysavingmom.com is hosting a freezer cooking day today so you can read more about her process and what she's whipping up as I type! I'm amazed she got all her groceries for around $61 for 25 meals...my total bill was about twice that for 14 meals (which will really end up being 28 meals for just the 2 of us)!
So here's what you can look forward to hearing about in the coming weeks (assuming that a) the recipes turn out well and survive the freezer and b) that I actually do any blogging in the next couple of weeks!)
Mexican Veggie Casserole
Oriental Beef & Noodles
Chicken Taco Soup
Ham & Asparagus Bake (in case she comes her due date around Easter...gotta have ham!)
Zippy Turkey Bake
I have a teeny tiny freezer and was able to fit all of these in 8x8 foil pans and ziploc bags and still have tons of space leftover. I have a couple more things I hope to get a chance to make before delivery day but I'm really happy that I've at least set aside these items!
