We are heading into basketball season and I know things are going to get busy. I don’t like freezer cooking, but am feeling forced to join the ranks of those that prepare food ahead of time, so we don’t starve to death.
I am not a hard core freezer cooker…more of a stubborn, obstinate one.
I am going at it slowly and trying to think of things we will actually eat and enjoy.
Today I made a batch of chicken, broccoli and rice. There was 4 dinners worth for the freezer and one for dinner tonight without chicken in it, as I had chicken legs on the side.
I am starting slowly, so had cooked the rice yesterday.
I pulled chicken out of the freezer and started poaching it on the back burner. I also pulled out some grated zucchini, tomatoes from last year and added it to a large can of crushed tomatoes to make a pan of pasta sauce.
My reading material while cooking! This book was amazing and I will be posting a review in a couple of weeks, but what a book! I couldn’t put it down! The Devil has no Mother by Nicky Cruz
I added half a gallon of homemade white sauce to the rice, 2.5 bags of broccoli, chicken and some cheese with spices to taste to the bowl. I added some chicken broth as well, that the chicken had been poached in to moisten.
We will see how the rest of this goes!
