- 7 bags of cooked black beans. We use a lot of beans in this house and buying and cooking in bulk did save us a little money but not as much as I thought. However the amount of sodium it is cutting out of our diet makes it worth it.
- Homemade pizza dough. Every friday this summer has become homemade pizza night but I have yet to make my own dough. I've been using the Jiffy mix and spicing it up. I'm pretty proud of the dough in my freezer now.
- 3 loaves of strawberry banana bread. I love baking, especially breads and this is delicious. I made so much because I initially had a freezer full of bananas. I used this recipe and modified it a bit.Strawberry Banana Bread
- Veggie burgers made from scratch. We eat a lot of these but I never think to make a lot of them and freeze them for a quick dinner.
Last night we made a big Italian feast. Homemade Gnocchi and homemade white sauce and we polished off a big bottle of vino.
Needless to say the kitchen has been a wreck all weekend but I'm hoping to give it a rest tomorrow.
I wish I had one full day a week to do this amount of cooking because I really do enjoy it when I have nothing else planned.
