Freezer Cooking Day


The freezer cooking day that was planned two weeks ago was postponed to this week since I had sick children earlier. It was a full day, but I was very pleased with how much we accomplished.


It was fun to work with a friend and certainly made the time go faster. The best part was having help with all the dishes!

Since our orignal date was canceled, my sister was not able to come and help. Having six children underfoot with only two adults was a little crazy, especially since three of them were under two years old! But they actually did well. Thankfully it was a nice day and they could play outside part of the time.

The results -
six turkey pies
four pans of meatballs
four pans of poppy seed chicken
two loaves of sourdough bread
four dozen strudel muffins
three pans of granola bars

The conclusion - a full freezer + a happy mommy = definitely worthwhile!

  2. Gina those meatballs are huge! What a great day you had & is always nice to cook with a friend :) Do you remember playing outside when you were little smelling the wonderful scents coming from the kitchen? Your kids will fondly remember these days too.

  3. Sounds like a very lovely and prosperous day. Don't you just love days like that when you lay down at night such a feeling of satisfaction and gratitude to God washes over you.

    It is good to get together with friends too. I so enjoy being with mine and cooking, sewing, or doing any other ordinary thing that tends to make me weary when I do it alone.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    Thank you for sharing.

    I think the only recipe that is on the blog is the turkey pie. You can find it on the What to do with turkey leftovers post here - http://homejoys.blogspot.com/2009/11/what-to-do-with-turkey-leftovers.html

    Maybe I can post some of the other recipes sometime.
