Freezer Fill-Up

My nesting seems to involve making sure we have food after Jellybean arrives. I previously talked about canning tomatoes and apples, and my adventures have continued!

This past three day weekend I added to the freezer and pantry!

Eight crock pot meals of the chicken variety. I used this pin/blog post from Pinterest for those interested.

I turned some beef neck bones into rich beef broth (frozen in freezer safe ball jars) and there was even enough beef bits for two BBQ sandwiches!

Then I turned these pots into 9 more pints of tomato sauce. And not pictured was four pans of beef and three cheese lasagna! I used my own recipe but everything is fully cooked and so we just have to thaw and bring back up to temp! Easy peasy and yummy for our post baby fog!!

That brings my count to nine casseroles, eight crock pot meals, and more cans of apple sauce and tomato sauce than I can count right now. Pardon me while I rest on my laurels and put my feet up.

I’m interested….does anyone else out there prep for busy times by filling the freezer?

  1. Oh that’s so smart. What a good idea when preparing to have a baby. You should have a frozen potluck baby shower where people bring you frozen meals to eat later.

  2. I made an extra batch of macaroni and cheese last week and then froze it in muffin pans (once it’s frozen, pop them out and put them in a ziplock bag) so that lunch for kids would be easier this week. I’m hoping to make some sweet potato quesadillas today for the same reason.
