Peanut Butter Cookies!

We ended up eating these before they could be frozen, but you could easily make larger batches and freeze the cookies for later munching.

With cakes, I’ve made them, sliced them into squares or wedges, and frozen the pieces (without icing).  When I need a piece of cake, I take one piece out, put it in the microwave for about 25 seconds, and then frost it with that lovely frosting that comes in the aerosol can (like whipped cream).  It’s called Pillsbury Easy-Frost.

His and Hers Cheeseburgers!  One of us likes our burgers with cheese and catchup only.  Another one of us likes to add veggies!

I made these burgers with patties that I’d previously frozen (raw). I had mixed up 5 pounds of ground beef with bread crumbs, eggs, and spices (Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Cookbook).  After forming the patties, I froze them, six per bag, which was about 1 pound per bag.

To cook them, I usually take 3 out of the bag, defrost them in the microwave, and then cook them in a frying pan on the stove.

You can see that regular bread works fine (toasted).  You don’t need to always use hamburger buns.

We served these burgers with carrots and we shared an apple.

Fajita Chicken:

I bought this chicken already marinated from my local grocery store.  It was on sale for $1 a pound!  I bought 4.5 pounds.

Here it is after cooking.

I sliced the chicken and put it in one layer on parchment paper (on a cookie sheet).  When one layer was full, I placed more parchment paper on top for another layer.  Then, I put the cookie sheet in the freezer.

When the chicken was frozen, I transferred everything to a freezer bag.  Now, I can make fajitas, quesadillas, salads, and pizzas.  That’s right, 4 types of meals, ready to go.  By freezing the chicken slices individually, I can pull whatever amount I want from the freezer.
