Freezer Cooking Day Done - Dec 2009
I really had so much fun doing this Freezer Cooking Day! I love to cook anyway and being able to dedicate an entire day to cooking was so fun. My list was completed plus I added the two pans of Turkey Tetrazzini (which tasted so good!) and then today I made up 2 large jars of Mexican Hot Cocoa Mix. Here's what I finished:
36 granola bars (18 chocolate chips, 18 cherry chocolate chip)
2 pans Turkey Tetrazzini
6 pizza dough balls
7 bags shredded chicken
2 quarts chicken stock
4 quarts Mexican Chili Beans
2 jars Mexican Hot Cocoa Mix
Make a list, check your list, make sure you have your ingredients on your list...you get the idea? Yep, I wish I had double-double checked my ingredients. I ran out of yeast, so I didn't have enough to make 6 more pizza dough balls which means I'll need to make some before the month's out. When I doubled the Mexican Chili Bean recipe, I completely forgot to double the actual ingredients for the Mexican part of the Mexican Chili Beans. So while they tasted good when I tried them before freezing them, I'm not sure they will be as flavorful as I want when it's time to use them. Oh well, you live and you learn.
Next month I want to try do make up more casseroles ahead of time so I'll probably do more shredded chicken in preparation. BUT I need to get through this month first :)
Thanks for hanging in there with me! Did you make something for once-a-month-cooking?
