Freezer cooking this week: I’ll be working on my Christmas baking a bit at a time and stashing it in the freezer for the holiday. I’ll also be putting Bison and Sweet Potato Stew in the Slow Cooker and Pumpkin Waffles in the freezer for another day.
Monday: Bison and Sweet Potato Stew in the Slow Cooker with salad
For the freezer: Make one Bison and Sweet Potato Stew in the Slow Cooker for dinner and assemble one in a gallon-sized freezer bag for another day. Remove as much air as possible, seal, label and freeze.
Tuesday: Chicken Cacciatore with salad
For the freezer: Make a second batch of Pumpkin Waffles for freezer for breakfast. Package in a gallon sized freezer bag, with waxed paper separating the waffles. Remove as much air as possible, seal, label and freeze.
