First time, Freezer Cooking…

Image

I spend many sleepless nights on Pintrest, pinning all of these wonderful ideas.  I have tried many of the recipes, but one idea I have been wanting to try for some time is freezer cooking.  How perfect would it be to have a freezer full of homemade breakfast, lunch and dinner for those days I’m either to busy or to tired to cook.  I felt rather domesticated this past weekend and decided it was time to cook up some freezer meals.  It seems that many of the blogs I read about freezer cooking cater to rather large families or the mom just likes to make weeks of meals at one a time.  Well, there are only three of us, and my freezer is only so big, so I stuck with four simple recipes.  Plus, being at the height of hurricane season, in Florida, it is not a good idea for me to stock my freezer with more food than we can eat in a couple of days if need be.

This is what I ended up with after about three hours in the kitchen…

10 Apple Cinnamon Waffles

12 Corndog Muffins

Tatertot Casserole – 6 servings

Goulash – 6 servings

Pizza Pasta -6 servings

I split the three meals into six different pans. I used the aluminum round 9″ pans with the cardboard lids from Dollar Tree.  After I put the food in the pans, I then wrapped them with heavy-duty aluminum foil. All of the recipes I used were from Pintrest, tweaked  to my liking! I have more pictures to post along with the recipes that I will put up later!!  All-in-all I think it was a success, but I really won’t know until we try the meals.  This will be a first for us trying out freezer meals…I will let you know how we liked them!
