Freezer Cooking Day

To prepare for our new baby, I have decided to do a small freezer cooking day tomorrow. 

This last week I made extra Chicken Enchiladas and Lasagna and froze 4 meals that can be pulled from the freezer and cooked.  I also have this list of simple crock pot meals and soups that we can throw together with minamal effort. 

Easy Meals:
BBQ Beef Sandwiches
Chicken Enchiladas (from freezer)
Chicken Noodle Soup
Crock Pot Beef Fajitas (I will post this recipe on Thursday)
Daniel's Chicken & Rice (This is the one meal Daniel cooks)
Hawiian Haystacks
Italian Chicken
Lasagna (from freezer)
Taco Soup
Tomorrow I will be making some breads to freeze.  Daniel is great to help out in the kitchen, but he does not like to bake.  Having a few things frozen will add some variety to our meals without adding the expense of buying mixes or baked goods.
Here is a list of the items I plan to make:
Rolls (these will be used as a side and for the BBQ Beef Sandwiches)
Pumpkin Muffins
Pumpkin Pancakes

I plan to spend no more than 2 hours from start to finish.  I will share a few recipes and how things go later this week. Wish me luck!
