Some of the meals I ended up making and freezing:
Lemon-Olive Chicken with broccoli
Beef Bolognese (5 quarts)
Carrot-Ginger-Coconut Muffins (2 batches)
Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins (2 batches)
Creamed Spinach (modified with safe for us ingredients)
Honey Sesame Chicken and Broccoli
Chicken Apple Curry* (2)
Apple Pie (2)
I also made a list of the food that we still had available from the harvest this year; apple sauce, jams, chutney, roasted tomatoes and a bag of zucchini muffins that turned up when we rearranged things in the freezer.
I had plans to make more but a couple of friends were talking about maybe dropping off a few freezer meals and I wanted to be sure we still had room for them. That didn’t actually happen, but two dear friends did drop us off some lovely fresh food, which provided us with salads and soups to pad out our meals. Also the most wonderful nut and fruit bars that turned out to be the perfect solution for those middle of the night, suddenly ravenous, nursing mama moments. I really must get the recipe for those!
*I’ll try to post recipes for these at some point.
