When I made chili this week, I cooked extra hamburger to freeze. I put 2 four cup bags and 1 two cup bag in the freezer. Two cups of cooked hamburger is approximately 1 pound. Knowing that makes it easier to cook a large batch of hamburger, then measure out to freeze. This is one of my convenience foods that I like to keep on hand. It makes for quick meals.
Hannah made homemade Oreo cookies for the first time. And took this picture. They came out great. The cookie isn’t as crisp as a store bought one, but not as soft as a whoopie pie. Her siblings (and parents lol) were very happy with her cookie efforts.
On Sunday, we make breakfast for lunch. Church was cancelled because of the weather, so we had time to make it. Hannah made the biscuits, my husband made the potatoes and the eggs. I made the turkey sausage, then turned it into gravy. The turkey sausage recipe is linked below, and it’s super easy. And very tasty. When I cooked the sausage, I cooked three pounds, then divided it. 1/3 went into the gravy, and the other thirds were bagged separately for the freezer for pizza toppings.
