Weekly Menu 5/28-6/2

Peanut Butter Banana Freezer Waffle 

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.

As you can tell below, I’m stocking my freezer as I cook daily. Some times I double/triple a couple of items in a power cooking session. Most days I’d rather double my what I’m already cooking anyway and freeze extra. It’s the way I cook and freeze without having to spend six hours or an entire day freezer cooking for a month. This system works best for my busy lifestyle. What’s your method of freezer cooking?

Dinner:

Ranch Cheddar Burgers, Greek Pasta Salad, Tortilla chips, pico de gallo

It’s been a busy Memorial Weekend with three cookouts and I used freezer cooking quite a bit. I made a pasta salad using frozen pasta and freezer ranch cheddar burgers. I also took southwest eggrolls and world’s easiest boiled eggs  to a cookout. I love spending less time in the kitchen and more time with family and friends. Freezer cooking allows me to do this. How about you?

    I saw you featured in *All You this week, and for some reason felt compelled to check out your site. I’m brought to tears at what the Lord is doing through you. It’s been really on my heart for the last year to do something for our local women and children, but I didn’t know what, and I was very overwhelmed by the thought. Reading through your site, I realize that it doesn’t have to stress you out or push you over the edge. It can be simplified and fun. I’m so inspired by your ministry and the way you involve your children, I hope to be able to start up something similar here in my area of South Carolina in the near future. Thank you for your work, for your ideas, and for not only blessing those women and chidren, but also those of us who read about it. God is awesome!
