Freezer Cooking Day: a smashing success!

Wow, I'm pooped! After nearly 7 hours in the kitchen, I'm ready to take the evening off.
I got all but one item crossed off of my list--whole wheat banana pancakes. I realized that I'd miscalculated the number of eggs I would need. Oops.

But it was almost 4, the girls were waking from naptime, and I was out of steam! I'll see about getting the pancakes done later this week. Other than that, though, the day went off without a hitch! And to top it all off, my crock pot meatloaf that I pulled from the freezer is nearly done. I'll warm up mashed potatoes & gravy, leftover from yesterday... throw a couple freshly-made butterhorns in the oven, and BAM! Dinner's done!

Here's the haul:

Butterhorns (32)
Olive Cheese Bread x2 (This doubled recipe actually made 6 servings, since the girls won't touch it.)
Breakfast Cookies x2
Chicken Spaghetti x2
Stove Top Meatloaf x2
Basic Meatballs x2
Pizza Dough x4
Chopped onions x4 (1/2 cup each)
Taco meat x3
Pinto Beans (4 "cans")
Refried Beans (3 "cans")
Chicken Broth (6 "cans")

And now, I'm off to play with my kiddos!
