Ok now, I feel better. I have a smaller chest freezer in my garage and my one attatched to my frige. I was wondering where you kept it all. You have more freezer space than I do. Mine are stuffed full right now. With everything I saw making I wondered how it was going to fit. Nice organization BTW!

I did a bunch of batch cooking a few weeks ago - I also made up a bunch of meals that would need to be cooked, but were already put together.....I went out to the freezer and the door had been left open all weekend - it was all ruined...I was in tears. The kids all of course got a lecture on waste, being in too much of a hurry to correctly close the freezer all were sufficiently guilted by my tears and even heard about it from DAD!!! I went yesterday (the kids are all at camp for the weekend) and bought at a co-op to re-stock. This morning my hubby went out and.......the door was wide open - this time something had eaten most of the food. (Evidently the racoons have figured out how to open the freezer and have a smorgasbord of food.) Once again what wasn't mutilated was ruined. I'm going to buy a hasp lock before I do that again. What I'm wondering is...do I tell the kids?

..... *shock*

I seriously want to do some batch cooking. But what should I make? And did you really boil ALL that chicken???? What becomes the chicken broth? lol (You would think I don't cook, but really I do.. I'm just not good with the huge recipes. lol)

Dana (The Homesteading Housewife) said...

what should you make? Make foods your family likes! I would advise against making huge batches of something before it got the thumbs up from the family. thats why the recipes I posted are "normal" sized... you can double/triple etc if you want. ;)

and the broth? yep I boiled all that chicken! lol
I used water, celery,carrots, onion, garlic, salt/pepper, and the chicken... sometimes I throw in a little sage or poultry seasoning... whatever floats yer boat! and all the flavors from the meat and seasonings & veggies make that water a fine broth!

Oh... and I chill it so I can skim off the fat too.. but this time using boneless skinless breasts there was very little fat.
