My list is completed!!! It might not have been a super hefty list to begin with, but it sure feels GREAT to have my freezers stocked full, and some Christmas goodies made!!
After the 'Intermission,' I put the kiddos down for a nap......Anna was the only one who didn't quite want to do it! But, I did have a good hour by myself to clean up and start on the Meatloaves. Then, after that, Anna was my cutie kitchen helper!
Here's what I accomplished this afternoon:
- 2 pans of Meatloaf---CHECK!
In the past, I would have baked them, let them cool, wrap them and put them in the freezer, already baked, but I didn't think they tasted as fresh and good. So, I wrapped them up, unbaked, and will bake them when I pull them out.
- Last batch of World's Easiest Christmas Candy---CHECK!
I tried to be spontaneous with this batch, and I used White and Milk Chocolate chips on top......yikes! I forgot that White Chocolate Chips are a little different, and they don't melt well or SPREAD well! So, this batch didn't turn out as pretty, but it tastes gooooooood!
- Moist Pumpkin Spice Muffins---CHECK!
If you are looking for a yummy, moist, delicious muffin----this one's for you!!!
So, here's the fruits of my labor today:
- 2 loaves of Banana/Pumpkin Bread
- Spicy Lentil Soup
- Moist Pumpkin Spice Muffins
- 2 Batches of 'Almond Roca'
- 2 pans of Meatloaf
This 2-day Freezer Cooking spree was a really great experience!! It was fun for me, fun for the kids to get involved--they love helping me in the kitchen, and it's a JOY to have a full freezer!! I have a feeling I may just try to keep this up! Thanks for joining me!!!!
