Freezer Cooking: Meat and Veggies

I spent a good deal of last week making some meals for the freezer. Many of the items bought on sale helped me plan some simple freezer meals for the future. I made chicken fingers…

mini-pizzas using Thomas English muffins, Pace Salsa and shredded mozzarella.

The kids loved them.

I also made some honey glazed carrots.

1 stick of butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 lbs. of carrots

melt butter over low heat

add 1/2 c. of brown sugar

add carrots and toss.

At this point you can freeze or place on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 15-20 minutes on 350 degrees.

We also cooked up 10 lbs. of London Broil seasoned with McCormick Grillmates and Italian Flat leaf parsley from my garden.
Cooking meat for the freezer can be one of the most time saving decisions you could ever make. One of the London Broil was used for dinner and the others were sliced or shredded for future meals.

While the oven was on my oldest daughter (15 y/o) decided to bake a chocolate bundt cake.

Remember, you have until today to pick up your Publix penny item and until tomorrow to get this weeks great deals at Publix. The new Publix deals should be up tonight.

    When cooking meats and freezing them for later use, do you cook them to the desired doneness for the meal or do you undercook them? I am interested in how to prevent the meat from becoming dry once it's thawed and re-heated.

    I'm new to your blog and am enjoying it very much.
