After about four hours of work, here’s what my sister and I had to show for our efforts:
Chicken and Red Bean Burritos (recipe from The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook)
Lemon Chicken x 3 (recipe from The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook)
White Bean and Chicken Chili (recipe from Eat Well, Save Big Cookbook)
2 bags of cooked brown rice
1 bag of cooked Great Northern beans
All totaled, the above should make enough for about 25 dinners for our family–plus some breakfasts and lots of Butterhorns! I sent 8 of the meals home with my sister as a thank you for all her help.
The rest of the meals should last us almost an entire month since we eat an average of 16-20 home-cooked dinners per month. (We go out to eat once a week and usually have dinner at our parents’ homes 1-2 times per week, plus we also eat leftovers or a really simple dinner of sandwiches or cereal a few times a month, too!)
It feels so nice to have the freezer all stocked up again!
Did you have a chance to do any baking or cooking this week? If so, post about it on your blog and leave your link below to your direct blo g post. I’d love it especially if you could share pictures and recipes so we can get ideas for our next Freezer Cooking Day! And I’m guessing many others would be inspired as well.
