Getting the Itch...
I'm getting the itch to do a major cooking day to fill my freezer. I want to do Dinner Zen for certain, but that is only 12 meals (well 24 for us). I need to supplement that with additional dinners and some lunches. I'm thinking:
Pork Chops with peppers, onions and tomatoes (stored in a freezer bag), 4 meals
Mango Curry Chicken (dump recipe, stored in freezer bag), at least 2 but probably 4 meals
Some kind of soup or stew (3 bags)
Pot Pies (2 or 3 but no more because they take up a lot of space)
Mexican lasagna (2 or 3 but no more as they also take up space)
That's 5 dishes and about 15 meals. In terms of time, I know I can do the Mango Curry Chicken in about 15 minutes, as it is mostly measuring spices and dumping into bags. The soup or stew can be a crockpot dish. Should take about 3 hours.
Hmm. Maybe next weekend?
