If you remember, a few weeks ago I tried my hand at freezer cooking. I opted to try just a weeks worth of meals to see how the process worked for my family.
Boy am I glad I let me husband talk me into that! Otherwise we would have wasted a huge amount of food.
I made 7 recipes and only 5 came out edible and only 3 were enjoyable.
The pasta tasted terrible, although it had smelled amazing on cooking day.
The pizza crust refused to bake, but the toppings and sauce were delish.
The chicken cordon bleu, was so-so.
The breakfast burritos were a hit with the hubby.
We both enjoyed the breakfast and bean burritos.
The meatloaf tasted okay but took almost 2 hours to cook.
I like the taste of the frozen fruit cups, but they take a good 20 minutes until they are thawed enough to get a spoon into. Maybe my freezer is too hard core. Because they take so long to thaw I have been eating them as dessert instead of breakfast.
I think I'll try the pizza again, make it, bake it and eat it all in the same day.
Overall, I think I will just strive to do my chopping and prepping in advance but leave everything to be cooked the day of.
How have your once a month cooking experiences gone?
