I made a little progress on my Freezer Cooking Day list yesterday. I was able to bake a loaf of Whole Wheat Sandwich bread and I made a dozen whole wheat hamburger/hot dog buns (6 of each). The buns weren't on my original list but I decided to change my menu plan last night and I made one of our favorite dinners, hot dogs and rice cooker macaroni & cheese.
I was also able to prepare 2 Freezer Meals with the pork I bought on sale at Price Chopper for $.97/lb. I added 2lbs. of pork for BBQ meat and 2 cups of BBQ sauce to a freezer bag. Close the bag and label Rootbeer Pork BBQ. Place in the freezer. When I am ready to prepare it I place the frozen contents of the bag in my crockpot, add 1 can of rootbeer and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve on buns or hoagie rolls.
Tonight I am going to make the Chocolate Chip Cookie dough and Molasses Cookies. I will also assemble the Hashbrown Potato Casserole for Easter lunch and keep it in the refrigerator until Sunday. Then I can just pop it in the oven for Easter Lunch.
I think I will save the English Muffins and Pancakes for Monday.
