I may hate myself in the morning.

You see, I’ve devised a rather ambitious plan for this month’s Freezer Cooking Daze. It may take all that I have and then some to accomplish it. But, I know that the crazy cooking I did last month really paid off.

With the upcoming Christmas holiday and family get-togethers as well as a visit from good friends at the end of the month, I know I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen this month. Unless it’s to bake cookies with my peeps.

Like last month, MoneySavingMom [5] and I will be liveblogging and tweeting our cooking adventures. You can follow along here [6] or there [5], or at our Facebook Event page [7], or on twitter [8].

So, for better or for worse, here’s my plan for the week’s freezer cooking days:

Breakfasts and Breads
hot cocoa mix [9]
granola
biscuit mix

Main Dishes and Sides
shredded beef [10] for beef taquitos, beef tamales and shredded beef and gravy
beef ragu
meatballs
taco meat
macaroni and cheese [11] (one reader told me this was “life changing!”)
roast turkey
turkey enchilada casserole [12]
turkey pot pie [13]
pinto beans [14]
red sauce [15]
mashed potatoes

Snacks and Sweets
Chocolate Mint-Mountain Top Cookies [16]
Annie Hall’s Butter Cookies from Susan Branch
Snowball Cookies [17]
Slab Apple Pies [18]

Think I can swing it? Tune in and find out.
