In just a couple hours I was able to prepare a pretty good stash for my freezer. Here's what I accomplished:
I started out by putting a roasting pan full of potatoes in the oven for Hashbrowns (from Heavenly Homemaker's recipes).
While the potatoes were busy baking, I got busy making the Easy Beef and Cheese Burritos. I doubled the ground beef and froze a pound of the seasoned beef in addition to making burritos.
And instead of just watching the ground beef brown (say that three times fast!), I mixed up the Pancake batter and griddled up a batch of pancakes.

Next on the list, Homemade Mayonnaise. This was quick and easy, but messy! Then splattered with mayo, I whipped up a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies. I only froze half the cookie dough as the kids and hubby wanted some fresh baked cookies, like now!
The baked cookies were gone before I could snap a picture! So, here's a pic of the frozen cookies (minus the one I ate, love me some cookie dough!)
Not bad for a couple hours in the kitchen. It's such a comfort to know that my freezer is ready to come to my rescue on those nights when "there's nothing to eat"! So, why don't you join me in taking on the "Heavenly Homemaker's Freezer Cooking Challenge". Leave a comment to let me know what's cooking (and freezing!) at your house!
