What's for dinner?

You may have heard of the "freezer cooking" concept, but it was new to me until I found this on Pinterest last week.

I'm not a cook by nature; I suppose after 25 years of cooking for my family, I'm just not that into it anymore. Well all that changed this weekend. I scoured the internet and found several dishes I thought I'd try. The idea is that you cook several different meals at once and then freeze them. Since not everything freezes well, there are exceptions to that. Even though it's been quite hot the last week, much of what I found was winter food. I don't mind... just knowing that we now have 25 dinners in the freezer makes me happy! I was surprised at how easy it was to cook for several hours straight. If I was cutting onions, garlic, carrots, etc. it was just as easy to prep for several recipes as for one. I had several pots on the stove, the oven going, and my Crock Pot to boot. I made spaghetti sauce, pesto, prepped several crock pot dinners, prepped a couple of containers of taco meat, roasted two chickens, and then shredding the meat and froze that too. Here's a little of what else I made... oh, and the pumpkin bread looked so good, I had to include that as well!
