With mama not coming in time for the baby’s arrival, one of the most daunting tasks on my to do list has been to prep the freezer. I don’t mind cooking (
who am I kidding!), as long as I know what to make. I could barely think of anything beyond taco meat. Finally, last night Imo and I got down to making our menu and cooking up 4 chickens, 10lbs of qeema and 5 lbs of boneless meat!!
For those of you looking to prepare your freezers in time for the baby, but dunno what to do, here’s a list of what we did!
- Spaghetti sauce
- Chicken Hamburgers (made into cutlets)
- Beef hamburgers (made into cutlets)
- Roast beef
- Unseasoned cooked qeema
- Tandoori chicken legs
- Tandoori chicken cubed for kabab rolls, frozen in meal size ziplocs
- Chicken Tikka legs
- Whole chicken with seasoning
- Seekh kababs
- Qeema kababs
Still to do:
- Achari chicken
For most of the food, we made large batches and divided it into smaller containers before freezing. For food like achari chicken and haleem, I will be making them for dinner over the next three days and then freezing them in batches of one meal serving size in ziplocs. Labelled everything .. and voila! Its done.
