Recipes: Taco Meat and Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

The Freezer cooking continues! This morning I set a big pot of beans [7] to get cooking in my crockpot. I love to cook up a lot of pinto beans at one time to use in chimichangas, burritos and beans and rice throughout the month. I portion it out into 2 cup servings which seems to be a good size for our family.

Next I cooked up five pounds of ground beef and made up a taco seasoning recipe on the fly. It’s so nice to throw together a bunch of bulk spices and herbs to season meat with.

Then, I experimented with a Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes recipe. If it’s a hit, I’ll be sure to share it. Or you can experiment on your own. Just mash a few cloves or a whole head of roasted garlic into your favorite mashed potato recipe.

I’m tired already. It was a lifesaver to have FishPapa watch the kids last month when I did this. I think I’m getting my mom and sister to come next time as reinforcements.

No one should have to peel 12 pounds of potatoes by themselves, now should they?
