Monday I made a new crockpot dish called Chicken Teriyaki and following an idea I got from Pinterest I doubled the recipe and put all the ingredients together and froze them. Now I just have to throw it in the crockpot on another day. You can see I added the final directions right on the bag because the chances of me actually looking up the recipe again on the day I cooked it are slim to none. I served this over rice and we are actually having leftovers of it tonight. All I will have to do is make rice. I shredded the chicken breasts after they were cooked and I think that made it go longer.
In the kitchen this week I also froze 7 quarts of tomatoes, canned 6 quarts of salsa, 15 pints of rotel tomatoes, 4 pints of grape jelly, and 3 pints of fig preserves. Tomorrow will also be a salsa day and our lima beans are ready to be picked also.
This week has just been, excuse my language, but just plain crummy. Crummy with a capital C and we are all tired. Worry will make you tired and then when you add all the work on top of that makes you really tired. This too shall pass and I have been trying to do as James says and take it off my mind and take it to God. He has it anyway and any control I think I have is only an illusion. I know this in my mind, but all I can do is pray it will transfer into my emotions and my actions.
So, is anyone else canning and freezing or putting away right now?
