Baking & Cooking Day

Monday was a baking and cooking day. I spent all afternoon and evening baking foods to put in the freezer to help make meal preparation easier!

Everything I made to put in the freezer:

14 Pizza Pockets
1 Frozen Pizza
3 (1 1/2 cup) containers Pinto Beans
4 (1 1/2 cup) containers Red Beans


Pinto Beans & Red Beans. I use the pintos for Mexican Casserole (drain the juice off) as well as for beans & cornbread! The Red Beans are for Red Beans and Rice! I found this bag of Red Beans for $.59 and it made enough for 4 meals; one can would cost that much!

Everything that was cooked & baked today:

1 dozen Chocolate Cookies
14 Pizza Pockets
1/2 batch of Pizza Sauce
1 Frozen Pizza
3 (1 1/2 cup) containers Pinto Beans
4 (1 1/2 cup) containers Red Beans
Cornbread (We had Beans, Greens, & Cornbread for dinner!!)

I also divided some of the meat at I found at Kroger marked down.
2-4 packs of hamburgers
6 sausage patties

It took several hours to cook all of this food and wash all those dishes but it is wonderful knowing I have beans for several meals and pizza pockets and a frozen pizza when I need a quick convenience meal!

  1. I need to go up and put more beans in the crockpot for the freezer…however my mother is getting upset with me filling up the freezer and we don’t have a deep freeze.

  2. Heather,
