What's Cooking in April?

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

As many of you know, I bulk cook with a friend each month so that we have food in our freezers and don't have to worry about dinner too much. Here are the recipes that we cooked for April. 

Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas

BBQ Chicken and Cornbread Casserole The BBQ filling we made and froze.  The cornbread ingredients (the dry ones) we mixed together, put in a Ziploc bag and attached that bag to the bag of BBQ filling.  We will thaw the filling and then assemble the dish in the crockpot.

Quinoa Casserole This recipe we are not actually going to freeze.  We bagged the non-perishable ingredients and then have the fresh ingredients on hand. That way we can throw it in the crockpot quickly and then cook.

Linda's Potato and Sausage Casserole
1 bag southern potatoes (the chunky square ones)
1 can cream of "something" soup (your choice)
1/4 cup of butter
8 oz. sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar
1 smoked sausage, sliced
 Heat on the stovetop the soup, butter, sour cream and cheese until melted. Put potatoes in a 10 x12 pan and then pour the mixture over it. Put the smoked sausage over it. Freeze.  Thaw and then bake for 30-40 minutes at 350.

Edwena from Only One Life graciously gave me a book called Fix, Freeze, Feast.  I was so excited to receive this book! I have already been looking at it and picking out some recipes for our May cooking adventures!  You might want to check out this book as all the recipes are in bulk and suited for freezing.

I love once-a-month cooking! Although I have not done it very frequently here in Maui- too dang hot to turn on the oven, and plus my stand-alone freezer had to go into storage when we moved here. But I can't wait to get back into it when we move this summer. I will have to check out that new cookbook too.

That is such a great idea! I think I'm going to ask my sis if she'd like to partner up and do something like this! Thank you for the tip!
