I’m so excited that our Freezer Cooking Day is finally here!  Although I know some of you have your own days planned, my friend Sarah and I are cooking tomorrow, June 29th.  We will be making four of everything so we will have a LOT going on.

Check back either on the blog or on the Facebook wall as I will try to keep you updated through the whole process.

If you still want to join in or need to make last minute preparations, here are all the links you’ll need:

Prep & Cooking Schedule

Sarah and I were able to pick up the majority of our ingredients using coupons and store sales or shopping from our pantries, but we still needed a few things.  She made a trip to Walmart for most of our canned goods and I picked up a few last minute things from Costco.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The cheese was $12.45 for 5 lbs or $2.49 per pound.  I could have gotten it a little cheaper by buying block-style, but I saved SO much time by not having to shred the cheese that I think it’s worth it.  Plus, it’s not a bad price.  The sour cream worked out to $1.23 per pound, which is a great price!

I also picked up potatoes and onions, but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend getting them at Costco if you are cooking for just your family.  Sarah and I are splitting the two enormous bags, so I know nothing will go to waste.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also pulled out all my meat to defrost and rounded up all the ingredients I will be taking over to Sarah’s.  My last few steps will be to make a list of all the perishable items I am taking over in the morning and to prep all my Ziploc bags and aluminum pans.  This will help save time tomorrow.

Please let me know if you have any last minute questions, I am happy to try and help.  I’m so thrilled to be sharing this with some of you and can’t wait to see how your cooking days turn out.  I will do a final wrap-up post after all is said and done to see if this is something we want to tackle again.

It’s possible you may see a video of me to kick off the cooking day if I can get my act together and look presentable.
