I made my first freezer meal today!
Well, at least a planned one. I have had leftovers and stuck them in my freezer before.
But my freezer is so small, I never tried to do any freezer meals.
Well, we ended up getting a second freezer, and I hope to be making more freezer meals to have on hand.
Now, you might be thinking… “Enchiladas?” (or maybe not…)
But these are pretty special, because they have refried beans in them.
“Refried beans?!?!?” What’s so special about refried beans?”
Well, let me tell you. We don’t have them here.
We had a group of students from Texas here these last 2 weeks, and they brought us 4 huge cans of refried beans (along with some other fantastic goodies).
WHAT A TREAT!
Imagine lugging those things over here… and just for us! We are so so SO spoiled. (Thank you so much Texas Team!)
When the Texans left, they gave us their leftover Chili powder. YAHOO!!
(They don’t have chili powder here.)
With the chili powder, I could make homemade enchilada sauce.
(They don’t have canned or powdered enchilada sauce over here either.)
Can you sort of see why enchiladas are a tad bit special to us?
Any who! I made up two pans, one for dinner and one for the freezer.
Tonight, I proudly stuck our first freezer meal in our deep freeze.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. (Please. Hold your applause.) 😉
On a side note… the boys didn’t like the enchiladas. They were too spicy for them.
