Weekly Freezer Cooking Menu

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.

We enjoyed a warm weekend in South Carolina camping in a cabin on Fort Jackson base with my parents. It was a lot of fun for our four children. Now it’s a chilly day in the mountains and we’re back to reality. Time for soup and more crock pot recipes.

Here’s what’s freezer cooking this week:

Pumpkin Cake and Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins made with freshly frozen pumpkin

Time to bake three small pumpkins whole and puree for goodies this week. They may never make it to the freezer.
