I mentioned in my Prep for NaNoWriMo post that having freezer meals ready for November is helpful, so I thought I should share what we did this year. My original plan was to keep from cooking tons of dishes and freezing them. I wanted to have crock pot and casserole dishes ready to go with a minimum of pre-cooking. That’s not exactly what happened and it took me more time than I planned. Two days longer than I planned.
I cut down my list several times before we decided on the amount of food we actually wanted to try to stuff in the freezer. I had lots of big ideas and not enough room!
You can’t see everything in the picture, but this is most of it.
I don’t have all the recipes posted, but I’ll keep editing this post and linking to the recipes as I add them. Gives me plenty of things to post during NaBloPoMo.
The full list of everything we made (the hubby was a huge help):
30 cups chicken broth
20 cups beef broth
32 cups Slow Cooker Beef Stew
5 cups Spiced Pears (for Overnight Oatmeal)
1 pound Pinto Beans
1 pound Black Beans
Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup
18 Freezer Burritos
5 pounds Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes
I feel like I’m forgetting something…
