Archive for Freezer Cooking
This week has been busy crazy. Jeff’s job interview on Monday went well and we went through a lot this week to prepare for a potential short-term and part-time relocation so he could work in another state and the kids and I travel back and forth between the two cities. We found out Thursday afternoon that he didn’t get the job. I’m very disappointed because despite the challenges it presented, it also presented some advantages that I believe we would have thoroughly enjoyed. I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up, but it’s hard not to when something that you feel would be an adventure and a tremendous opportunity is dangled in front of you.
My kitchen is in complete disarray. We went ahead with building the cabinet in case he would be leaving town for that job. You can’t see the counters. Plus we tackled some other needed projects around the kitchen, yard and house. The only things added to my freezer this week were some cooked quinoa, lentils and navy beans. I started all three sprouting last week in anticipation of a recipe testing session but the sudden crazies meant I had little time to cook. I cooked them once they were done sprouting and popped them into the freezer until I could have the mental space to decide what to do with them.
