Weekly Freezer Cooking Menu 1/4-13

 Crock Pot Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy

When you have a stomach bug you don’t feel like planning or cooking. Now that I’m feeling a little better I’ve got to get serious or we’ll be doing take-out every night :)

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:

After a long holiday break and birthday, it’s time to take an inventory of my freezer, defrost it and purge. I hope your holidays were blessed and beautiful. I look forward to sharing new recipes with you this year.
