Got My Chocolate


Today was our mega cooking day! We have one day each week (or every other week depending.) Today we made (from left to right) Turkey Meatballs, "Chik'n" pot-pie calzones, "chik'n" and rice casserole, bean and rice burritos, and chocolate brownies thrown in for good measure! These brownies are the BEST!!!! We all had some chik'n and rice casserole (vegetarian) and harris and I both had a turkey meatball to go along with the meal. We froze everything that we didn't eat for dinner and our freezer is now PACKED with nutritious, organic, homemade meals that are easy to reheat and eat! Woohoo! I visited the grocery store this morning and spent $74 on enough groceries to feed us through next week! We will be enjoying our new (batch of 12!!) homemade burritos or our calzones for quick lunches.




Side Note***Did you know that pancakes freeze really well too??? We bought some really tasty whole wheat, organic mix and Harris just loves the pancakes. I decided that instead of just giving him his homemade apple cinnamon oatmeal for breakfast, I would give him a little variety, and present him with some flapjacks in the morning. All you have to do is cook them up, let them cool on a plate, and then put them in a freezer bag with a bit of wax paper in between each one. They are easily reheated in the microwave and taste great!!

  2. Hi there,

    The potpie calzones sound awesome, could you elaborate on how you make the filling?

  3. I like to put the frozen pancakes in the toaster oven. The texture is better, I think. ;)
