Massive Freezer Cooking Session – Day 3

Today was a relatively lazy day for me until Dad came home.  Took Daughter Person to daycare, went to the gym, came home and chopped some veggies and then relaxed – watched some new Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix, read some, etc.  About 2pm, started to cook – cooked the rice pilaf, the tomato-basil soup, and the thai red curry sauce.  All of which had to cool completely before being able to process and freeze.  So they cooled while Dad and I had dinner with Daughter Person and played with her until she was ready for bed.

After she went down for the night, we packaged up the recipes cooling, and Dad cleaned while I made the lasagnas.  We cut up an 8lb pork loin and stuffed it with garlic (something I’ve never had before – $1.99/lb) to be put in a crock pot later – doesn’t even need to thaw.

Then Dad halved chicken breasts for me while I prepared the freezer bags with the marinade.

Three recipes left – two simple marinades and one chicken fingers (slightly more work).  Hopefully, I’ll get those done in the morning and have the afternoon to myself.

Our freezer is looking a little umm… overstuffed.  I need to go back and do some math and figure out exactly how many servings of things I made  – I suspect I made more than the 2 months worth I was going for.  At least we will have food for a long while!

  • Breakfast Burritos
  • Tomato-Basil soup
  • Thai Red curry Sauce
  • Rice Pilaf
