Freezer Cooking Wrapped Up!

Gramma John’s Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can’t tell you how exhausted I am. Today was much harder than Saturday, in part because FishPapa wasn’t here to “ride herd” or to bring me that Vanilla Coke from Sonic in the waning afternoon. (And I SO wanted both of those things today). But, I got ‘er done. My house is trashed, but my freezer is full. And I treated myself to a couple of Gramma John’s Blue Ribbon Cookies. Only for one batch, I used white chocolate and walnuts. So yummy!

I probably attempted more in one day than was probably wise. But, as I told you last week, I’ve been spending 2-3 hours a day in the kitchen anyway. I’m hoping my full freezer will help me free the shackles that bind me. Over the weekend, I made dinners; today I made breakfasts and lunches:

3 Quiches Americaines (how’s that for fancy? Just made it up – recipe to follow)
4 mini egg bakes
2 lunches Stuffed Foccacia
maple granola with lots of nuts and seeds
3 loaves Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Breakfast Cookies – I omitted the honey which made them less sweet and a little crunchier
Pancake Mixes
Gramma John’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate-Nut Biscotti

Tomorrow around noonish, Crystal will be sharing her accomplishments and offer a chance for you to share yours. So don’t forget to pop over and check out all the March Freezer Cooking Madness!

  1. I hear you on doing too much! I was so tired after my cooking this month — we were out of so much because of our blizzards I took on more than usual. Two days later though I’m really happy I did it and my days are already becoming easier. It’s been great to pull my son’s lunch out of the freezer! Your cookies look great.

  2. I made your foccacia yesterday plain. It was scrumptious. When you make it stuffed, do you make individual ones or layer half the dough, fillings, the other dough half or what?? Any input appreciated.

  3. I feel bad because I didn’t partake in this this month. I still have tons from December. It’s not like I’m not eating it, I am. There is just that much. I think later this week I’ll do up another batch of pancakes (I’ve only got a few left) and hmm, I know there’s few other recipes I’d like to do but I don’t need them so I’m putting them off so I can use up what I already have. Yesterday I made butter chicken, but the chicken was in my freezer from before I even started Oamc, so even though I didn’t use what was prepared already, I was still using something I had in my freezer. I haven’t had to buy any meat (other than a few rotisserie chickens in the last couple months) since November. I don’t really have room to make much more, but I’m getting tired of some of the hamburger meals I made. Thankfully I still have plenty of chicken prepped up and also a whole bag of chicken breasts from before OAMC that are just plain, but cut into strips. Maybe a chicken stirfry would be nice. I’m still working on my menu … Sorry, don’t mean to ramble. :)

  4. I managed to get my small list done, which I am still proud of since we had a busy day yesterday! 4 casseroles, 4 batches of corn muffins, 2 batches of chocolate chip muffins, and some biscuit twists. Not too bad for a short day! :) I so love this idea! Thanks so much for all the how-to’s and encouragement along the way!

  5. I love reading how it went! I did a mini day, nothing like you! I am hoping to work my way up to making more dinners, but this month it was more a breakfast month I think!

  6. Will you please share your maple granola recipe or the basis for it? Thanks!

  7. Can you tell me if there is a basic recipe for chicken stirfry, simple ? thanks

  8. You are awesome. Money Saving Mom is awesome. Thank you SO MUCH for inspiring me to do OAMC. This is the second month that I have done this and it has been a real life-saver in our house! With four kiddos ages five and under, dinner time can get pretty crazy around here! I love being able to pull a meal out of the freezer in the morning and pop it in the oven at night! I too did a little too much this month, but will be enjoying my efforts for the next four weeks! Thank you so much for your inspiration! Check out my results here:
