Freezing with Friends

Where might one freeze with friends?
A. In the middle of January, walking to class on campus.
B. In a church kitchen.
C. In the walk-in cooler while serving as a camp counselor.
D. All of the above

Correct answer = D!!!!!

However, this blog is going to be about letter B!

That’s right – over the weekend, I had the chance to freeze with friends in a church kitchen!!! We had a freeze-o-rama party! We cooked, talked, laughed and cooked some more and when the day came to an end, each person got to take home 12 home-cooked meals with them! What a great day!!!

So, I decided to make something SUPER simple. Easy to prep and certainly perfect for freezing! I made Pizza Casserole. This recipe was given to me at my wedding shower (over 11 years ago!) and I’ve found it to be a great choice now that I have kids! It’s quick and easy to prep, the kids will eat it and every time I make it, I double the recipe to freeze one or share with a friend. It’s only 5, yes FIVE ingredients!

Here’s how to make it:

Brown 1 lb. ground beef and drain.
Boil 1 small pkg. of elbow macaroni and drain.
Mix macaroni, hamburger, 1 can pizza sauce, and 1 can cheddar cheese soup.
Pour in to two 8×8 casserole dishes and top with shreded mozzarella. Bake at 350 for 45 min. and/or freeze!
Items needed to prepare 12 dishes for the freeze-o-rama… 

Finished product!

So, if you are looking for something fun to do with friends – try freezing!!!! The funniest part of the day for me – when I finished all 12 dishes and cleaned up my work space – this is what I found…
