I have just about got my freezer all cleaned out. Now there is more room for holiday baking! Yipee!! First order of business will be cooking a fresh pumpkin pie and freezing it for Thanksgiving! I will post pictures and recipe!
1: Tuna Noodle Casserole, Mixed Veggies (This recipe is really good! I froze the leftovers in small containers that are perfect for taking to work for lunch.)
2: Scalloped Potatoes and Bratwurst (place the Bratwurst on top of the potatoes and cook it at the same time) , Spinach Salad
3: Slow Cooker Roast, Carrots, Potatoes, Gravy (All of this can be assembled and put in a freezer bag and frozen. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and put in slow cooker in the morning.)
4: Roast Beef Sandwiches, Chips
5: Chicken Cacciatore, spaghetti, salad, garlic bread (Throw into a freezer bag the following: 4-6 chicken breasts, 15 oz. diced tomatoes, 8 oz. tomato sauce, 2 sliced onions, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 2 teaspoons oregano, 1/2 teaspoon basil, 1/2 teaspoon celery seed, 1 bay leaf, and 1/4 cup of white wine. Squish the bag. Refrigerate overnight and in the morning throw it all in the slow cooker and cook on Low for 8 hours. Or put in freezer and cook for another time.) As requested by my family, they wanted Fresh Strawberry Cake. It is the best!
6: Pepper Steak, Rice, Salad
7: Hubby grills chicken and sausage, baked potatoes, corn on the cob
8: Chinese Beef Broccoli, Rice (If you want to prepare some of this ahead of time the flank steak can be cut up and add the marinade to it in a freezer bag. Freeze until needed. Thaw in refrigerator. As it thaws it will marinade. I froze some broccoli that was on sale too. The broccoli can be frozen separately. These steps will take some of the work out of preparing this dish on a busy night.)
9: Chili with Fritos and Cheese (it is starting to get cold here and chili is just the ticket for warming up)
10: Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (an old family favorite)
11: My son cooks his favorite spaghetti (and it is yummy!), salad, garlic bread (Or if you want to you can cook up a big crockpot full of marinara sauce and freeze the leftovers. Here is a good recipe for marinara sauce. I think I just might cook this up anyway to have some on hand.)
13: Leftovers (If there are any, LOL! We also eat any leftovers from the dinner before for lunch so there may not be any leftovers. If that’s the case then sandwiches and chips will be on the menu for tonight!)
14: Buttermilk Roasted Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Green Beans
15: Breakfast for dinner!!
16: Poppyseed Chicken, Rice, Salad
17: Casserole Spaghetti, Salad, Garlic Bread
18: BBQ spare ribs, Baked Beans, Corn
19: Chicken Delicious, Salad
20: Homemade Pizza (freeze some extra pizza dough and make double the amount of pizza sauce to freeze!)
21: Mexican Casserole, Corn on the Cob, Salad
22: Sloppy Joes and potato salad
23: Taco Night
24: Leftover night
25: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Tomato Soup
26: Movie and a Dinner Night
27: Eggs in Spicy Tomato Sauce served with tortilla chips
28: Pepperoni Pizza Bake, Salad amd Garlic Bread
