Freezer cooking for the month


These are the things that I didn’t make, cause…well….I didn’t 🙂

Breakfast (this is G’s birthday request).  We will be having a sausage/egg casserole, french toast casserole, homemade biscuits, chocolate chips pancakes and bacon.

BBQ and Pork/Beans….not really a make ahead type of thing.

Roast/Potatoes (I put a roast, in my crockpot or my big pan.  I cover the bottom with water.  I cut up my potatoes and an onion, add my seasoning, a packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix and Worcestshire sauce, then I cover at bake it at 250 all day).  With that, I will have homemade mac & cheese, salad, baked corn and rolls)

Vegetable Soup (2 pots using the leftover roast and potatoes…while adding frozen mixed veg, seasoning, basil, oregano, thyme, 2 beef bouillion cubes, 2 cups water, 1 quart tomato juice and a couple of bay leaves)


Pizza (Big Daddy makes them homemade and we will have that once a week)

Mushroom Roast (this time, I put my roast in the crockpot or large pan, still cover the bottom with water, add seasoning, fresh mushrooms, 2 cans of cream of mushroom, onion and potato…cover and cook all day at 250)  With that, I will have green bean casserole, salad, Lima beans and rolls

Potato Soup and a pot of Cheeseburger Soup (remember I have a large family).  The cheeseburger soup recipe can be found by scrolling down.

Potato Soup Recipe

4-6 peeled potatoes, cut up

onion, cut up


2 chicken bouillion cubes

Place these in your soup pot and put enough water in it to cover.  Let simmer until potatoes/onion is tender.

In the meantime, cook your bacon and drain.

Once tender, add 1 8 oz. pack of cream cheese, 16 oz. sour cream, 2 cups cheddar (or more, if you are me), chives (optional) and your crumbled up bacon, 2 cups of milk and more water, if needed.

Let simmer till done.



Brown your meat, with an onion and seasoning.  Drain.  Add to soup pot.  Add 2 beef bouillion cubes, 2 c. water, 1 quart tomato juice, 1 1/2 packets of chili mix, 2 cans chili hot beans, 3/4 block of velveeta.  Simmer till done.

Italian Roast (same thing as above, except I use a pack of Italian dry mix)…will be making a pasta salad and rolls with this.

Pasta Salad


    • 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked rotini pasta

    • 1 (16 ounce) bottle Italian salad dressing
    • 2 cucumbers, chopped
    • 1 green zucchini (I will use these when they are in my garden)
    • 1 red onion
    • 6 cherry tomatoes (my fam doesn’t like these, so won’t be adding)
    • 1 can, drained, sliced black olives
    • 1 bunch green onions, chopped (omitting this since I am using the red onion)
    • 4 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place pasta in the pot, cook for 8 to 12 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the cooked pasta with the Italian dressing, cucumbers, tomatoes, and green onions. In a small bowl, mix the Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning, and gently mix into the salad. Cover, and refrigerate until serving.


This is our journey of adoption, love, homeschooling and living life to the fullest.....even if we do live in chaos (can't have anyone over syndrome).
