Freezer Prep Day
Today was my OAMC (Once a Month Cooking) day. I was going to do this Friday, but I thought it would be a little easier to do so with my husband home to help with the kids – more importantly, our 4 month old baby boy. Well, I was wrong! My son is quite the Mama’s boy. When I leave the room, his little bottom lip starts poking out…even if he is on his Daddy’s lap! I’ve got to tell you though, I love it!!
4 batches of Berry Baked French Toast. (Thanks OnceAMonthMom!)
1 batch of homemade poptarts. (Thanks OnceAMonthMom!)
A batch of my recipe for CornDog Muffins. (I baked mine in square muffin tins)
2 Batches of Pizza Croissants that I sprinkled a little Italian seasoning on (Thanks again OnceAMonthMom!)
I also made up 7 bags of marinated chicken breasts. Boneless chicken breasts were on sale, so I bought up a bunch of them for future dinners. Each bag has 4 chicken breasts in them, and different marinades poured in. This time I used Herb, Garlic, & Lemon – Honey Teriyaki – Allegro – & Italian Dressing.
I think that I may do a ‘mini freezer prep’ day in a week or so for some homemade bread, pizza doughs, & homemade baby food. But this is what I was able to accomplish today 🙂
*NOTE* To reheat precooked freezer meals, it is really best to use the oven for the best flavor. Things like the corndog muffins & pizza croissants will be warm in 5 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven.
Go girl! I’ve thought about doing the once-a-month cooking (or doing it twice a month), but never quite gotten up the nerve. I was impressed by your list of things canned this year so far, too!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, today 🙂
OH Man those look so good 🙂
I use to this for awhile, you’ve inspired me to get started again. Thanks so much!
