Cheeseburger Chowder

Mar 26, 2012

I had a really relaxing weekend this past weekend. I got a little bit more cooking done for when baby comes. I made my all-time favorite chowder, Cheeseburger Chowder! I was surprised it made 6 servings too!

So far I have in my freezer:
6 servings cheeseburger chowder
5 servings beef noodle soup
1 week supply of cinnamon buns

Only 2 months and 3 weeks left of work! That's only 12 more weekends that I have to stock up my freezer! And I know for sure I won't be around for all those weekends, but my plan is to make one freezer meal a weekend and bake one thing. I don't want to have an overflow of food, or play myself out. And its also super easy to make extra some nights and freeze leftovers.

I would like to get at least two more weeks worth of soups (lemon rice with meatballs and chicken noodle I'm thinking) and a couple different kinds of muffins (blueberry, and banana choc chip and bran), quiche, cookies and a couple casseroles.

I'm really looking forward to a slow week ahead. The weather is supposed to be really nice by the weekend and we are possibly thinking of going to the big city to do some baby shopping! How exciting!
