I put of a lot of things into my freezer today. I got a lot accomplished in general today!
I'll start with over the weekend..Saturday I added 8 chicken fajita wraps to my lunch stash (didn't snap a picture, though). These were really delicious, and I calculated that it cost me roughly $0.36 each to make them!
Sunday I did nothing. Absolutely nothing. Ok well, I popped a few potatoes into the microwave to bake, but that's about it.
Today, I attempted to make up for that fact, and I think I did! Along with a ton of housework (laundry/dishes/mopping/vacuuming), I broke out my bread machine and made some dough.
The first thing I made was ham and cheese pockets. I used the bread machine recipe, and it made 16 pockets.
Then I made dinner roll dough using a recipe in my bread machine cookbook. I used all purpose flour instead of bread flour, since I have found that 25lb. bag on clearance. I had to add a little more flour to the dough because it was a bit soupy looking while rising in the machine, and I had to work a bit more into when I rolled them out because it was still very sticky, but after they were baked, I thought that they were the lightest and fluffiest rolls I had ever made.
I let 8 rise, and baked them to go with dinner, and I rolled out another tray of them and stuck it straight into the freezer without letting it rise.
I will place these into a bag and then take out what we need for a meal and allow them to thaw and rise for several hours the day I intend to use them.
I also bagged up my huge bag of flour to store in the freezer. I filled 4 gallon sized freezer bags and still have some flour left even after baking all of this today and everything I baked last week!
Dinner meals are the theme for the coming week, and I am thinking I will sit most of these out (I do plan to make some pizza dough--possibly go ahead and make pizza pockets--on Friday).
I've just got plenty of dinner's already in the freezer, and I freezer cook dinners nearly everytime I make a dinner meal, so those are constantly being added to, and this week I'm mostly eating from the freezer.
