Weekly Freezer Cooking Menu 11/12-11/18

Crock pot No Boil Manicotti

Nearly every meal I prepare consists of foods I have cooked or baked in bulk and frozen. I thaw items in a plastic shoe box to prevent condensation dripping onto my shelves (I’ve learned from experience). Then I shop my freezer from my freezer inventory,  to see what goodies I can thaw and serve to my family and others. I write these items down on a seven-day menu plan and post it on my refrigerator as a reminder to thaw my food 24 hours ahead of time. Typically right after the dishes are done, I check my menu plan and put new items into my thawing box and slash them off my freezer inventory.

We rotate the same breakfast items each week:

We rotate leftovers, wraps, sandwiches and salads for lunch

Dinner this week:

It’s another busy ministry meal week. Last week we fed our usual 40 at the women’s shelter and we’re taking one a new level. We’ll do 75 using the same menu. I’ll share our prepping idea with you on Wednesday so you can duplicate this if you like. We’re also making meals for two ladies, one with cancer and a kidney transplant recipient. I’ve planned a dozen meals for each lady. So we’re just doubling up and all the meals are “no cook” on our side. I’ll be sharing the details on Friday. This is an easy way to stock your freezer or another friend or family in need.
I hope your month is going well and you’re ready for the holidays. We received about 8 pumpkins which I’m slowly baking for the freezer. I have lots of pumpkin recipes to incorporate them into. We love the new pumpkin pie bars made with homemade pumpkin pie spice which I’ll share, of course. They are freezer friendly and perfect for little or big hands.
I hope you’ll join me this week in ministering to others. Blessings, friends.
Have you ministered to anyone lately? I’d love for you to share about your experience in the comments.
