I'll try to share the recipes on my cooking blog, so that if any of our meals sound tasty to you, you have quick access to them. I think it's important that you realize I am a cook once, serve multiple times kind of girl. My food saver is a great asset to me, and to my cooking. Most recipes are not made for just two mouths, and I don't (normally) like eating the same thing day after day as leftovers. So, I freeze a LOT of food. This also has helped me get our freezer loaded with meals so that once the bean arrives I don't stress over what we're having for dinner, or grocery budgets. (Note to self, I really need to get into the freezer and do an inventory so that nothing gets wasted). I also cook things one time, that I know we'll use later (like meatballs, ground beef, grilled chicken, turkey broth, etc) and that I can toss into another meal.
Here's the plan for this week:
Sunday - Thanksgiving Casserole (one to eat, one to freeze) and Cranberry Crumble. (I'm also making Egg Nog cookies to stock up on dough, and to take to work too).
Monday - Jambalaya (Freezer stash)
Tuesday - Burgers and Fries (Freezer stash)
Wednesday - Ravioli (Costco) and Spaghetti Sauce (Freezer Stash)
Thursday - Pizza (It's Grey's Anatomy night - gotta have pizza!)
Friday - Thai Chicken & White Rice (one meal to eat, two to freeze)
Saturday - Free Night (either I'll pull something from the freezer, or we'll go out)
