October Freezer Cooking: The Nesting Edition

Ok with my due date rapidly approaching (November 5th!) I thought it would be an excellent idea to restock the deep freeze because, to be honest, I don't want to cook much come November! Here is what I've accomplished so far:

  • Wild Rice Hotdish x2
  • Monterey Jack Stuffed Chicken Breasts x2
  • Eggrolls (made up 58 but then we had them for supper that night so I have 43 left!)
  • twice baked potatoes (did a variation of these on the Holland grill - rubbed the skins with olive oil and sprinkled them with Mrs. Dash Original Blend, turned out absolutely divine!)
  • Best Chocolate Chip Cookies dough (ready to bake 4 dozen)
  • pizza dough
  • 8- 22oz containers Red Sauce ( inspired by Fishmamas' recipe but of course I couldn't leave well enough alone and tweaked it to my own tastes. I will have to share later what I did because it turned out pretty good!)
  • Whole grain cinnamon rolls 1 batch
  • Pumpkin Waffles
  • Light n' Crispy Waffles x2 (although I've noticed these are almost gone already!)
  • Hamburger patties (4lbs)
  • 2 lbs Black Beans
  • 2 lbs Kidney Beans
  • 1 lb Garbanzo Beans
  • 12 cups shredded zucchini and summer squash for breads and muffins (last of the bounty from my garden!)
  • 34 cups of my Homemade Chicken Broth
Granted this has all been done over the past few weeks because I'm not up for marathon cooking/ baking! Now if only my stove will come clean...
    Still in the works:
    • Chicken Enchiladas
    • Cheese Pasties
    • muffins and  more cookie dough
    • refried beans
    • Chili or lasagna?
    • breakfast burritos?

      Hi there! I just found you whilst checking out my blog followers and I'm loving how much we have in common! I'm a mom of soon to be 4 (well, is April soon?) and am revving up for a couple days of freezer cooking myself :) I love life's little coincidences! I wish you all the best as you approach your due date!
