First Time Freezer Cooking - Part 2

So I realized  I never added photos or anything about my first experience freezer cooking. Here is what I learned

DO NOT try to do everything in ONE day especially when you have a 2 yr old running around and are 27 weeks pregnant lol

DO NOT plan more meals then you have freezer room for LOL - can't wait to get our new chest deep freeze so I can really stock up.

DO do a lot of prep work the day before - will save you a LOT of time

Ok so here are some photos from the day spent cooking

Since then we have also tried the Pizza Roll Ups, Bagel Pizzas and Chicken Spaghetti however I did not freeze any of those, they were just for lunches or dinners.

First Time Freezer Cooking

**UPDATED the recipes I actually got done in the one day (what would fit in our freezer) have been bolded & underlined***

So after seeing lots of fellow bloggers I love doing this and praising how easy it was I have decided to try freezer cooking to see if I can take some of the stress of daily cooking out of my day. And on the plus side if it works out the way I hope it will justify my wanting a deep freezer so I can make a full month of dinners at a time when I do my monthly grocery shopping.

So for my first time here are the recipes I am trying out TODAY (and possibly tomorrow lol)! Did my monthly Aldi shopping yesterday and bought everything I need for my day of cutting, prepping and cooking :-)

Breakfast Items
(Darin leaves around 6 am for work so some of these items I thought would be easy for him to throw in the microwave to heat up and take with him to eat in the car on the way to work)

Lunch Items

Dinner Items
Staple Items
