Summer Meal Themes & Freezer Cooking
Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 5, 2011 @ 7:50 pm In Freezer Cooking,Meal Planning | No Comments
I spent yesterday cooking up a storm and stashing things in the freezer. I’m making sure that every recipe is just right for The Cookbook .
I’m pleasantly surprised at how well my new meal themes for summer  are coordinating with my freezer cooking foods. That’s what I call a happy accident!
Here’s our meal plan for the week:
Slow Cooking: Beef Stew* with Chile and Green Olives, Rice, Green Salad
Fish Supper: Crumb-Topped* Cod, Broccoli Gratin*, Quinoa Pilaf  – this didn’t happen last week, so it’s up again
Portable Dinner: Turkey Baguette Sandwiches , Veggies, Chips
Beans and Rice : Black Bean Soup*
Pasta: Spaghetti and Meatballs *, Salad, Rolls
Cooking Out: Tandoori Chicken *, rice, Grilled Vegetables
Pizza Night*: Pepperoni, Burrito , and Shrimp, Pesto, & Feta – last week I ended up making different pizzas
The asterisks (*) indicate the items that are freezer-friendly. Yeah for less work now that the heavy lifting has been done . Come back tomorrow to see what I cooked up this weekend and share what you’ve been doing, too, to fill your freezer.
And don’t forget to visit Menu Plan Monday  for more meal planning inspiration.
