Freezer Cooking Weekend

So this weekend occurred 2 weekends ago but I’m just now getting around to posting! Smile

I spent most of Saturday baking all afternoon and into the evening. It was a fun day. And we are still reaping the benefits. Marvin helped a little- he prepared the meats!

We created a pot roast that we enjoyed the following Sunday for lunch, and Marvin ate leftovers ALL week! Definitely worth the $8.00 for meat and ~ $2.00 for veggies


I am not known for eating breakfast so when I saw my cousin’s post about freezing muffins I was all about it. I made a double batch of Banana Chocolate Chip muffins. Again, I’m still eating these. I actually took a bag to work and keep them in the freezer so I don’t even have to grab anything from home in the morning.


Then 2 weeks ago a friend from church needed some meals prepared for her family. She was having some procedures done later that week. Our bible study decided to all make a dish and bring it with us. I prepared Lasagna… 3x!  We ate one, gave away one, and I still have one in the freezer.


I tried to show the steps to freezing. wrap in plastic, then wrap in tinfoil and label the outside for preparation information!


Then that night I made Chocolate Chip cookies. We baked 11 that night and I froze the rest of the dough~ although that IS all gone now. Marvin was even baking it all by himself! 028

Here’s to saving money and eating at home! Smile


  1. SO AWESOME! love it! it's a lot of work that prep day, but so worth it, huh?

    glad you like those muffins, they are pretty tasty!

  2. I love having a several meals in the freezer on days when I don't want to do any meal prep. A lot of times, I just automatically double a recipe if I think it will freeze well. Or I make an extra large batch of soup and freeze portions of it. Sooooo nice to have on hand! Good for you!
