Weekend of Cooking

JP worked SEVEN days this week and almost 75 hours.  It's been a crazy week!  I'm trying to get back into normal meal preparation.  Tera and I did a bunch of freezer cooking this weekend.  The kids have been sleeping in later and grabbing whatever they don't really have to prepare for breakfast.  So, we focused on breakfast foods and at least 1-2 lunches.

We made 5 different recipes that will cover about 10 meals.  

Tera made muffins and baked oatmeal.  I made breakfast burritos, bean and cheese burritos and muffin tin omelets.

I accidentally made a crockpot of beans earlier in the week, when I had other things on the menu.  So, I turned those into refried beans for the burritos. (Basically, I filled tortillas with beans, onions and cheese.  Wrapped each one in plastic wrap and put them in a freezer bag.)  I ended up with several extra quart size bags of refried beans to freeze for quesadillas and burritos.  

Tera made these salted caramel apple hand pies...

Last night, I made one of JP's all-time favorite recipes, Hamburger Quickie from Mrs. Eby's Man Holdin' recipes.  She reminded me we've been married for 20 years, so it must have  worked! 

Tonight, we've got Easy Coconut Milk Curry Chicken with rice and flatbread on the menu.  

Can't wait to try this recipe one day this week:  Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Steel Cut Oats

I guess fall has truly arrived as you can tell with all this cooking and baking we're doing.  

What's cooking in your kitchen?
