Well, Thursday and Friday are kind of a blur. I spent a lot of time in my kitchen recently freezer cooking, starting on Thursday afternoon. But, we now have a freezer full of meals and meal components for the coming month. I didn’t get everything from my May Freezer Cooking Plan done. But, I did enough to keep me out of the kitchen in the next few weeks.

Here’s what I accomplished:

Main Dishes
1 dinner Stuffed Chicken Breasts*
2 dinners Chicken and Bacon Subs*
2 dinners Pizza Subs*
6 dinners Marinated Chicken
3 dinners Pizza Kits
24 Burritos/Chimichangas
10 cups Red Sauce
2 dinners Shredded Chicken

Side Dishes
2 loaves Garlic Bread*
3 dinners Garlic Mashed Potatoes*

24 slices Oven French Toast
36 Cinnamon Rolls
64 Chocolate and Regular Butterhorns

The *asterisk denotes that these recipes were experiments. I will be sure to share them if they are good.

  1. How do you freeze your cinnamon rolls? Pre or post baking?

  2. Wow! You got lots done. I know you’re pooped too but what a feeling to just walk in your freezer and pick up a dinner…so nice 🙂

  3. Would you mind posting your recipe for Chicken and Bacon Subs? And for your garlic bread? Also what to the * beside the meals listed mean? I am wanting to do a freezer cooking, but to be honest my hubby is picky so I am hoping to test out new recipes and see what will work for us.

      After we taste the subs and LIKE them, I will post the recipe. 😉 The asterisk designates an experiment. I’ll let you know.

  4. I love your blog! I’ve been following your freezer planning for a couple of months and finally decided to give it a try during the month of May. In fact, I blogged about it last night. Thanks for your inspiration and your tips!

    I’m seriously contemplating some freezer cooking (baby steps). How much in advance do you take your freezer dinners out to thaw?


  6. This was fun to watch. I enjoy seeing the pieces go together for the meal planning piece.

    You rocked the #oamc tag. Seemed like folks really appreciated your help that Thursday. 🙂


  7. Wow – that is menu plan my family would actually eat! Yeah and Thank you!
    As a side note I made your garlic french bread chicken sub tonight – so yummy! 🙂
