Today I started the cooking and preparing food for freezing.
The first thing I do is cook the meat. Last night I cooked the chickens and made the stock. Usually I would cook the mince too but since the Kangaroo meat shop was shut when I got there, I had to wait till the morning to buy it.
I cook 4 kg at a time and that is enough meat for about 3 lots of 2 different meals. This lot of meat is doing my spaghetti sauce and the cheeseburger soup.
Once the meat is cooked, I make the spaghetti sauce.
This sauce will do three meals.
Here it is in the containers ready for the freezer.
While the sauce was cooking, I cut up all the vegetables for the pumpkin soup. I forgot to photograph the soup prep.
After the pumpkin soup I did the cheeseburger soup.
Here is Christopher helping me cut up vegetables for the cheeseburger soup. After the soup I did the chicken schnitzels.
Here is the cheeseburger soup we had for tea tonight.
To make the chicken schnitzels, I put the fillets in flour, egg and milk and breadcrumbs.
I then wrap them in alfoil lined with baking paper.
Here are all the meals ready for the freezer. I have three spaghetti sauces, three serves of chicken schnitzels, three serves of pumpkin soup and two serves of cheeseburger soup (it would have been three but we ate one for tea.
Tomorrow I will have a break since it is Sunday, On Monday I will make:
Hamburgers, chicken and corn soup, mushroom pasta, stew and meat loaf.
