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). 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. Here’s what I’m thawing this week…
Brown fried rice using frozen thawed brown rice, fried cabbage,
5-minute tacos, taco salad for adults
Local sausage, eggs, grits, brownie waffles
Flatbread pizza, salad
The menu is much shorter this week because I’m gone to She Speaks, my dream for 4 years! Daddy’s on Mr. Mom duty for three days. He’s invited to several meals out (just saying he might need some help). Plus he treats the kids to dinner out on Daddy. It’s gonna be a healthy week, can’t you tell?
