Doing Dinner
Topic: In The Kitchen

What a big day!

I gleaned a bunch of recipes via Pinterest for what many are calling 'dump dinners'. They are assembled into gallon ziplock (I used vacuum seal) bags and kept in the freezer. On the night before serving they are thawed in the fridge and then in the morning they are dumped into a crockpot to cook on low heat.

Out of all the recipes I had printed I selected 25 to make and did a comprehensive shopping list (marking off the supplies I had on hand). 

Yay! It was 'geezer day' at the supermarket where there is a discount on store brand products for over 55 shoppers. I also had a fist full of coupons so it was the perfect day to shop.

Back at home I sorted the supplies by type. I had an area for all the produce:


One area for meats:


and an area for all the add-ins:


This essentially took all of my counter space so I had to do all the prep work on the surface of the range!


I chopped, stirred, measured, poured, combined, sealed, and labeled.

Hubby cleaned up after me and transported everything to the freezers until I was finally done - 7 hours later.

Only one recipe was duplicated and I ended up with 26 dinners. 


All of these meals will produce left-overs so I suppose we really have 52 meals.

Next time I will limit myself to 10 recipes for a shorter day.
