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!!
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.
