Freezer Cooking Day-March Results

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

My Results: 03/01/10
You’re looking at:
1 Chicken Noodle Soup (plus 1 container lunches)
5 “Cans” Cream of Chicken Soup (I tripled recipe: made 7 “cans”, used 2 in casserole)
5 Bags of Kidney Beans
1 More Breakfast of Pancakes
1/2 Loaf of Banana Bread
School Cupcakes for “LuLu’s” 3rd birthday!! (no icing yet)
Here’s a breakdown of how my cooking days went…
Saturday:
I made Crock Pot Chicken (no it’s not in the picture).  We ate it on Sat. night with potatoes and corn, then made Chicken Pot Pie, Soup, and Casserole plus 2 lunches for me with the rest. 
Sunday:
Hubby made pancakes then I made Chicken Noodle Soup and banana bread for dinner.  I also got the lasagna ready (meat cooked and everything in the crock pot-put in fridge).
Monday:
Cooked kidney beans, got lasagna cooking, made cream of chicken soup, made chicken, broccoli and rice casserole.  Cleaned kitchen.  Made cupcakes (add on-I almost forgot!), made chicken pot pies and assembled lasagna
This is what my helper did
She “organized” the crackers
I also assembled snacks for lunches on Sunday night. I add a few snacks into small containers to pack in the kids’ lunch. This time I included gold fish, cheez-its, and pretzels (recent sales of course).  If you read my post HERE on public school, you’ll know “Monkeyboy” attends kindergarten at our local public school 5 days a week and “LuLu” is in a local church preschool 2 days a week (hence the 7 containers). Hubby also got a bag to snack on.
You’ll notice this isn’t a months worth of meals.  That doesn’t work for me, but I do like to have items cooked ahead of time for busy days and the cream of chicken soup and kidney beans will last for a few months.
One thing I learned:
I’ve always cooked one larger chicken for my crock pot chicken.  This time I used 2 smaller birds from a Harris Teeter sale recently.  It took much longer than I expected to skin two small birds, longer to pull the meat when cooked and it didn’t yield as much meat.  I’d rather spend a little more on one larger chicken and spend less time.
I hope your Freezer Cooking Day was a success!
