December Freezer Cooking Plans

Well, now that I’ve checked the freezer [5] and baked up a ton of cookies [6], I am ready to top off the freezer with the makings of breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the month of December. I’m really looking forward to creating some margin in the month.
As you know I’ve got a cookbook to write [7] (squeee!) and a family to love on, so mealtimes need to be easy — and yummy.

[8]Beef enchiladas, anyone?

Taking the Load Off

To make my cooking daze easier, I’ll be giving my small kitchen appliances a work-out. The bread machine and Kitchenaid mixer can be working on pizza dough while the crockpots will be cooking up red sauce, shredded beef, and pinto beans.

On the shopping front, I’ll also swing by Costco and buy the pre-grated cheese since it’s a great bargain and costs no more than the block. And since I’ll be making so many burritos, I may even buy the BIG can of refried beans since it’s less than $3 and will save me some time.

Here’s what I’ve got cooking:

  • Potatoes: Mashed, Twice Baked, and Hashbrowns
