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
16 waffles
2 jars Mexican Hot Cocoa Mix

Make a list, check your list, make sure you have your ingredients on your 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?

Wow, I really like your list. I can't wait to check out the Mexican Hot Cocoa Mix and the granola bars. It has never occured to me to make granola bars. We eat an insane amount of granola bars! Thanks for sharing!
