I love having frozen meals in the freezer for those days that I know are going to be super busy and I just don't want crock pot dinner. But I was down to my very last beefy noodle casserole! What to do?
Spend 2 days cooking! I have stuff planned for tommorrow too....
Yesterday I made 18 garlic parmesan chicken breasts, frozen in their coating and individually wrapped so I pull out what I need in the morning, thaw them, and bake them.
Today I braved 3 batches of Orange Braised Chicken Thighs, 1 batch of crock pot Steak Dionne (marinade, veggies, and meat in the bag- thaw and stick in crockpot.) 18 Swiss Cheese and Ham Melts with mustards poppy seed sauce individually wrapped in foil ready to be baked for 20 minutes and served, and got done 1 batch of Spicy Peanut Chicken. With 2 more to go!
Tomorrow's list is a bunch of rice, to be frozen ready as a side, and frozen in a Green Chile and Cheesey Rice casserole.
Man, there are days when I love having a deep freezer! Because I have also 2 batches of pulled pork for a variety of sauces, 3 bags of cubed ham and 3 of sliced ham, and 2 bags of cooked red beans for chili. Whew!
Of course, my house is a train wreck again, so I had to stick some cleaning in there too today. Boy, did I need a nap, so when Daniel wouldn't go to sleep unless I laid down with him to nurse him, I took full advantage of that!
