Dinner Date

This past Friday, Karen and I had a dinner date....but this wasn't just any NORMAL dinner date- we got to work in the kitchen and made several freezer meals for the month!
I'm so proud of us for getting our acts together and accomplishing what we did.
We didn't start cooking until after 7pm- if we would have started earlier in the evening we probably could have completed one or more meals, but it was a great 1st run.

Here's Karen hard at work:

And here's some of the meals I made.

1. Philly cheese steak sandwich filling, which will be enough for 2 meals......2. King Ranch chicken casserole- I made the entire recipe, but divided it into smaller containers...

3. I cooked about 2 lbs of frozen chicken, and seasoned the meat according to what dish they would be used in.

My feet started aching, so we wrapped it up around 10:15pm. Next time we'll start earlier and we'll have our recipes a little more planned out. I really wanted to make some muffins and pumpkin bread, but I can always do that this upcoming weekend.

Next time I hope to try some new recipes- Karen found this stuffed shells recipe that sounded yummy, but I'm waiting for a report :)

You are going to have to teach me how to do this!

It all looks really good. I managed to get about 8 meals in the freezer last week. I really need to have a cooking day but I am afraid I have run out of energy. My MIL says she won't let us starve when the baby comes. It will be nice having her so close to help out.

This is so cool -- something I've definitely always wanted to try!
