Time to Stop Stockpiling

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 at 10:52 pm

For a while now, I’ve been doubling a recipe or two a week, stashing the second recipe in the freezer for when/if I or baby end up in the hospital.

Tonight, I doubled a beef enchilada recipe that was supposed to make a 9×13 pan – and ended up with three 9×9 pans and one 9×13 pan, and a little extra. How does that work?

So now my freezer contains…

  • a 9×13 pan of beef enchiladas
  • two 9×9 pans of beef enchiladas
  • a 9×9 pan of turkey enchiladas
  • a 9×9 pan of Aztec casserole
  • a 9×9 pan of my mom’s meatloaf
  • a 9×9 pan of Cajun meatloaf
  • a container of BBQ pulled pork
  • a recipe of Swedish meatballs
  • a recipe of Crockpot BBQ meatballs
  • a recipe of ricotta gnocchi
  • a recipe of turkey tortilla soup
  • a recipe of oven beef stew
  • a recipe of corn chowder with chilies
  • a recipe of chili
  • a recipe of potato corn chowder
  • a recipe of West Virginia soup
  • a recipe of Great Grams Spaghetti
  • a couple of pizza crusts
  • a few jars of pesto
  • a recipe of refried beans
  • a dozen or so bean and rice burritos

That’s what? 3 weeks or more of meals?

And we’re already at 33 weeks with no particular end in sight (Eeek! It’s so crazy to be HEALTHY this far into pregnancy!) Go much longer and we might not even need a NICU stay.

I think it’s time to stop stockpiling.
