Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are one of those great, quick, and easy comfort food type recipes. For a long time I stayed away from making sloppy joes because my impression of sloppy joes was the kind I had seen so many people make. You know the version that is just opening the famous can, heating it, and serving it over a bun. I had no desire to […]

Crockpot Salsa Chicken

This is one of those recipes that is almost too simple to post. However, it is really good, so it is worth posting. We love my easy chicken tacos, but since tacos and other Mexican type meals are often on the menu plan, I like to have variety. Not only that, I like to freeze different taco and burrito type fillings ahead. Although, we like […]

Freezer Cooking Plan

Every few months I try to put a few meals or parts of meals together to freeze. This saves me so much time on very busy days. I used to do a lot of freezer meals. At one time I would freeze thirty to forty meals at a time. Right now doing that many meals at once, does not work for me. However, I do […]

Freezing Taco Meat

One of my favorite things to freeze is taco meat. It is so easy to make a large batch, place it into Ziploc bags, and freeze. What I love about having taco meat in the freezer is that I can use it for so many things. It works great for tacos, taco salad, and nachos. I also use it in enchiladas and burritos. You can even […]

Freezing Cinnamon Rolls

I was in a baking mood the other day and my kids have been requesting that I make cinnamon rolls. So, I made a big batch of them. Cinnamon rolls take time to make and I don’t often have the time it takes to make them. So, when I make them, I bake a big batch and freeze most of them. I have tried several different ways to freeze them over […]

My Day

Today was one of those days that I was glad for freezer meals. I had planned on making a pork roast in the crockpot. Well, I did not get it done. I had a Dr.’s appointment, my daughters’ piano lessons and knitting class, and a trip to the library. For some reason between all that I did not have time to get a meal in […]

Basil

What do you do when you are getting lots and lots of basil? You make lots and lots of pesto. I have picked a lot of basil this year. I have picked 8 cups at a time, at least four times this summer. I have been using it to make a lot of pesto and I have been freezing it. I have frozen some in […]
