May Freezer Cooking Wrap-Up

Overall, things went great! Or at least I think they did… I guess I won’t know for sure until I successfully use up what I’ve just frozen.

I did have one massive flop: the yummy-sounding Oatmeal Banana Raisin waffles. The batter seemed normal enough, and the first waffle was tasty (we’d planned to eat them for breakfast and freeze the leftovers). The second waffle split in half when I opened the waffle maker, but it was fairly easy to pull both halves out. The third waffle, however, stuck and burned to the waffle maker, necessitating an abrupt end to deliciousness as I picked out burned waffle bits for twenty minutes. Maybe the waffle maker was too hot or next time I could try some cooking spray.

To console myself, I made a recipe for Chocolate Chip Banana Bread that I’d been wanting to try. It came out perfectly, but, ah, did not make it to the freezer.

Everything else went as planned, with the small deviation of finishing up several things on Sunday instead of Saturday. It took a lot longer to cook the black beans in the slow cooker than it should have because of how I accidentally turned it off at one point. So I finished that up on Sunday, along with the pizza dough. I also made an extra batch of marinated tofu for Sunday’s supper, and cooked up a batch of white beans that I hadn’t planned on.

Here’s what I’ve got:

one batch of Carrot-Raisin Muffins
one loaf of Chocolate Chip Banana Bread (very similar recipe on Orangette – I used the one from her book, though)
enough filling for two batches of Black Bean Enchiladas (recipe coming soon)
dough for three pizzas
sauce made for Vegetable Lasagna
onions and beans ready for Pasta with Beans and Greens (recipe coming soon)
4 extra onions chopped (and later double-bagged because the freezer and refrigerator stank of onions)
one batch of tofu marinating (and one batch eaten!)
