It didn't sound that great. I actually printed the recipe book and I think I will make some this week since school is on break. Which are your favorites so far?

Spicy sausage soup. It calls for spicy Italian sausage but we used andouille and I think that was much better.

recipe?

difficult-difficult lemon-difficult (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 1 March 2015 21:16 (six years ago) link

1lb ground spicy sausage (subbed sliced andouille. I bet you could use chorizo and black beans and that would be darn good, too.)
8 medium-sized carrots (about one pound), peeled and sliced
2, medium-sized tomatoes, cored, seeds and juice removed, and diced (we used one can of diced tomatoes because it's winter)
1 medium-sized zucchini, ends cut off and chopped (about one cup)
1 medium-sized yellow squash, ends cut off and chopped (about one cup)
1 medium-sized yellow onion, diced (about one cup)
1, 15oz can of cannellini beans (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
1, 24oz jar of your favorite pasta sauce (this seemed really weird to me but it worked.)
3 cups chicken broth (day of cooking)

Everything in the slow cooker for 8 hours on low.

The parenthetical (white kidney beans) was copied from the original recipe. I assume you all know what cannellini beans are. I am not beansplaining.

I've got a list of 32 other potential freezer meal recipes in a good docs spreadsheet that I will share with anyone who is interested. Hit me up at carlagathaparty at gmail.

Here's the beef stew recipe we used - http://livesimply.me/2014/11/20/freezer-crockpot-beef-stew/. This one is my second favorite. I added potatoes day of cooking each time.

Man this one sounds not quite right

Slow Cooker Party Beef Roast

2-3lb boneless beef chuck shoulder roast
1 cup grape jelly
1 cup Simply Heinz ketchup
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

It could be good for meatballs, but with the addition of something spicy maybe to cut through the sweetness of the jelly and ketchup

lol is that from a recipe generator like the one crabbits or someone posted a long time ago? with the washing the lemon juice and stuff. also, party beef.

It's from the "no-cook" recipes book carl agatha has been using. I got that from the PDF, but I noticed the version on the blog is "party pork," which is certainly better than beef, but still sounds way sweet. And weird. Nothing against the book/blogger! Most of the rest sound pretty good.

Yeah that one didn't make my list. I'm all about embracing the hot dish-esque cuisine of my flyover foremothers but beef, jelly, and ketchup is so not going to happen. Same way cooking with cream of soups is fine but Mountain Dew is a step to far.

assawoman bay (harbl), Saturday, 26 August 2017 19:36 (four years ago) link

flank steak is bomb

I've recently embarked on a "use it up" mission, which means some serious work on freezer/pantry items. Just cooked up some lentils that were purchased maybe 3 years ago? If they are lame I will feed them to the chickens.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Saturday, 26 August 2017 20:48 (four years ago) link

report back - i have some 5 yr lentils I've been eyeing

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 26 August 2017 20:58 (four years ago) link

i've never seen skirt steak in my costco

assawoman bay (harbl), Saturday, 26 August 2017 21:42 (four years ago) link

imo roasted sweet potatoes keep better/reheat better than roasted reg potatoes

Meatballs / bolognese sauce probably freeze the best of all the dishes we can make in large batches. Freezing them in snapware seems to work pretty well.
