last blog post of 2008

I'm sorry to report that I will hold off on blogging again until 2009 so hopefully you all will still be around then! ;-)

corny, I know, but I couldn't resist!  This is a big day at la casa de Holley.  I'm about to pack a bag for the overnight stay at T's for New Year's Eve but in anticipation of getting back to a non holiday work schedule next week I made a massive grocery run and have spent ALL MORNING cooking and freezing.  I'm currently waiting on my last crockpot concoction to finish cooking then I'll dish it up and freeze it.  

I made:

pot roast - bagged & froze 8 portions
lasagna - boxed & froze 12 portions
chicken and pasta casserole - boxed and froze 6 portions
roasted chicken (whole) - bagged and froze 7 portions, (it would have been more but I used 2 cups to make chicken & dumplings)
chicken & dumplings - it's not done yet but I anticipate at least 8, maybe 10 portions

that's around 40 meals!  Plus I bought some dry butterbeans to make but I don't have time at the moment.  We had ham at KT's last weekend and they were nice enough to let me take the bone and some trimmings so I'll cook the beans up sometime next week maybe and then I'll have a freezer full of good stuff.  The grocery bill was bad at checkout, but if I don't have to go again for a few months (other than perishables) then it will definitely be worthwhile.

Everyone have a safe and happy New Year and I'll catch you on the flipside!

I will be making chicken tetrazini at my casa tomorrow, but there probably won't be enough left over even for leftovers :(
