Freezer Cooking: Crazy Woman Lives to Cook Another Day

Would you talk some sense into me next time?
Yes, at about 5 pm, I realized that I was in deep. Due to a missing roasting pan, a long-cooking turkey, too much beef to cook in one round, etc, etc, my afternoon stretched into evening. When FishPapa came home, I still had beef to shred, turkey to bone, ragu to cool, gravy to make, yada yada yada.
Earlier I got a little stressed making mac and cheese. I knew several of you were going to try my recipe and I became nervous that it wouldn’t be as “life changing” as I promised. I normally use large elbows, but today used small elbow macaroni. It looks different with small elbows, a little less saucy. If you’re tackling that recipe, you may want to add an extra 1/2 cup sour cream and an extra handful of cheese to make up for that.
Tonight we had simple turkey sandwiches for dinner instead of whatever was planned. And here at 8:25 I’ve finished the last load of dishes for the day. I’ve kinda committed myself to more cooking tomorrow, but I don’t think it will be half as difficult as today was. I am thankful that I didn’t try to do anything but cook today.
Things cooling or already frozen:
turkey enchilada casserole
macaroni and cheese
shredded beef for tacos and for gravy
turkey pot pie
slab apple pie
cookies? maybe/maybe not.
How did you do?
