Weekend freezer cooking

Did my weekend freezer cooking over 2 days. On Saturday I did the breakfast items. Then Sunday the dinners.

11 Breakfast croissants (egg, ham, onions, peppers, spinach and cheese). I place some shredded cheese on croissant, before adding the egg mix. I bought a dozen croissants at Sams on Friday, but was so hungry when I got home, I just nuked on to eat.

8 Omelets - same ingredients as croissants, including some leftover mushrooms I had. I like to overload the omelets with veggies, that's why you see it spilling out

1 Dozen blueberry muffins
1 Dozen banana oatmeal muffins

I make all my breads in muffin form, so it's easy to grab on the go. I also replace sugars with crushed raisins whenever I can. I didn't use raisins in the blueberry muffins, because the raisins would've clashed with the berry flavor. I just used half the required amount of sugar

Tonight we're having lasagna stuffed mushrooms again, thanks to Thrifty mom in Boise This recipe was a huge hit last week, so we're having it again. I do make my meat sauce a little differently. I add diced red peppers, onions, spinach and omitted the cottage cheese (I'm not a big fan of cottage cheese). I also sprinkled some basil on top of the cheese

Tuesday will be chicken quesadillas. I'll make some fresh pico de gallo and add a can of refried beans, rice and sour cream. Above is my fajita chicken. I like to leave some of the juice, to help keep the chicken moist and let the spice flavors soak through. This chicken is used for a variety of mexican dishes. It's all made in the instant pot.

Wednesday - Bush's grilling beans stuffed peppers. I added some shredded cooked chicken for extra protein

Thursday - leftover buffet

Friday - nachos with the fajita chicken

Half the food (with the exception of the mushrooms and peppers) have been frozen for future meals. I hate cooking in the morning. I just want a cup of coffee in my hand. By cooking ahead, it frees up more time for me to do other things and/or is easy to grab when we're busy, sick or just not in the mood to cook.


  1. You have saved yourself lots of time since you won't have to wash pots and pans all week. Everything looks and sounds scrumptious.

    1. Thank you! You are absolutely correct. I never thought about all those pots/pans I don't have to clean again. It's one of my least favorite tasks too.


Meal Plan Monday

I'm so not in the mood to figure out meals for the week, so I've made an easy menu. Besides, who feels like cooking during summer.  ...
