February Freezer Cooking Daze Update

I participated in the February Freezer Cooking Daze, hosted by FishMama at Life as MOM and Crystal at Money Saving Mom.   Here was the plan I posted at the beginning of the cooking. 

I posted updates on my status throughout the weekend on Twitter - are you following me (@frugalfollies) there?

Here's my plan, and how things turned out:
  • 4 quarts chicken broth  Done!
  • 2 quarts tomato sauce  The recipe only made one quart.
  • 2 lb. (dry) pinto beans cooked in the crockpot  Done!  I used some of the beans to make chili for dinner tonight as well as one quart of chili to freeze.
  • 4 loaves whole wheat French bread in the bread machine  I only made 2 loaves because I ran out of yeast.
  • 4 batches slice and bake freezer cookies Done!
  • 2 loaves challah  Done and eaten up!
  • Applesauce in the crockpot  Done!
Here's a picture of all the things I made, with the exception of the challah and the applesauce. I'm glad I have these ingredients ready to be used as the base of my menu plan  for the next few weeks.  And now, combined with my ill-fated trip to the Albertsons closing sale, my freezer is full! Next month, I'm going to try to make several more items.  Can't wait!

Looks great! It is such a relief to be able to get cooking like this done and out of the way!
