    I start freezer cooking for Christmas week the Monday after Thanksgiving. I have done all of the main dishes for 8 days plus desserts, dozens of cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls and cookies. My freezers are packed! The key to this if you do this much is to have a list of where you put everything or you will be unloading the entire freezer looking for things! I know this from experience! I still have some cookies and candies to make but they need to wait a few more days because they cannot be frozen. I really encourage everyone to do this. It has completely changed Christmas week when our kids and grandchildren are home. I actually get to see them! We also made a paper plates only rule for that week a few years ago and that has been a huge work saver too. Using real dishes and running the dishwasher 3 times a day just makes me exhausted and is not worth it.

    Yesterday I managed to make chocolate chip cookies, peanut blossoms, and stir-me-nots. While all that was going on, I had the forethought to realize I was going to be a little tuckered out when dinner time rolls around so I stuck a beef roast in the crock pot while I was making/baking cookies.

    I have to confess that the mixture of smells was a little icky though. 🙁

    My thoughtful husband volunteered to wash all the dishes from the cookie baking right through dinner dishes (we don’t have a dishwasher). When he was finished he rewarded himself with a glass of milk and a handful of cookies. 😀
