Freezer Cooking

Last week we had our August meeting for our Freezer Cooking club. At my house.

And Sam had a ton of fun helping me cook.

We did a bonus bread exchange on top of our regular meals, and I got all domestic and crap, making crescent rolls from scratch.

The first batch was a little tricky, but once I got the hang of it, the second batch flew by. Turns out crescent rolls aren't that hard after all. And they smelled so good, all sweet and yeasty. Can't wait to try them!

My main meal was Chicken Lasagna Rolls. And this was my first time making lasagna of any kind. The last time, I did florentine rollups in MOPS as one of our day things, the noodles were already done for us to save time. In real life, making lasagna noodles is kind of a pain in the butt. I never realized, but none of my pans are big enough for them, so I have to stand there, watching and holding until they cook enough to bend, so I can fold them into the pot. Little inconvenient when I'm trying to do other things too.

But they turned out great. Sam even ate a mistake noodle straight up for lunch. This was the first time I had tried new recipes out on the girls. So this time I made these chicken lasagna rolls. After tasting, I think they need to be a little lighter on the broccoli, and they need more cheese. But hey, can you ever have too much cheese? I don't think so.

If you are interested in some of the recipes we use or anything, our group just started a blog. Enjoy! Bon appetit!
