So nesting has begun.....I've been planning and shopping and cooking like a fool since last Thursday. I've decided to embark on a Once a Month Cooking endeavor. So here's my list:

Breakfast foods
  • Breakfast Burritos - 19 made (had to eat 1 for breakfast, they looked too good)
  • Muffins - 12 Cinnamon & 12 Blueberry done
  • Granola Bars - 2 pans cooling as I type
Dinner foods
  • Spaghetti Sauce - 3 bags with 5 cups of sauce each
  • Taco Soup - 2 bags done
  • Chili - 2 bags done
  • Red Beans & Rice - 2 bags done and had for dinner last night
  • Mac-n-Cheese
  • Lasagna - 2 pans done
  • Chicken pot pie
  • Salisbury Steak
  • Meatloaf - 2 made and ready for the oven when we are
  • Stuffed Peppers - 2 pans done
  • Baked Ziti - 1 really large pan done, may use for a night when lots of family are over
  • Southwestern Egg Rolls
  • Chicken & Rice Casserole
  • Beef & Black Bean Enchiladas - 1 pan done
  • Taco Meat - 1 lb made and chillin'
So far that's about 18 meals + some quick breakfast options for us. I'm sure some of them will leave us with leftovers as well. I still want to pick up a roast and whole chicken to cook as well. Hope everything I've made turns out ok after it comes out of the freezer. I'll have to let you know. I guess it's back to the kitchen to finish up!! Except for having a bit of a head cold and getting exhausted easily, this is kind of fun!!

When the freezer is stocked, I'll share a picture. :)
