Dan's sister, Brynn, had the phenomenal idea to have a freezer meal party to stock our freezers during the busy Christmas season and to help her be more prepared for dinners once she has a baby in March. There were five of us participating and we each brought two recipes and sufficient ingredients for everyone. In the end we each ended up with 11 meals (Dan's mom surprised us with one extra)! It "only" took about 3 hours.
We made Beef Noodle Supreme, Chicken Parmesan, Shredded Beef for sandwiches, Empanadas, Ham and Cheese braid, Cream Cheese Chicken Enchildadas, Sloppy Joes, BBQ Chicken Pasta, Spaghetti Pie, Italian Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta, Balsamic Glazed Pork. Are you hungry yet??
"Wait, I can't see!"
So much plastic wrap and foil used.
The ham and cheese braids
Pretty sure Adam had the most fun...
Outside was colder than the actual freezer. Plus we wouldn't have had enough room for them all. Such good times! And man does it feel good to know I've got 11 easy dinner ideas!
We had a blast at our Ward Christmas party later that week. A talent show was the highlight of the evening. Dan, along with a few other Elders, became the "Chinmunks" for the night and did a lip sync to the Chipmunks Christmas song. :)
McKenna loved watching the "Daddies sing the funny song."
I sang Oh There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays. (Editors note: she did great! I love hearing her sing solos)
The Primary kids got up to sing Jingle Bells to welcome Santa Claus! Technically McKenna's not in Primary yet, but she loved getting up there with the kids. She's standing in front with the pink shirt and skirt on. That pink tutu/skirt goes everywhere with us!
Kenna was a little more brave this time and sat on the big guy's lap. Too bad I think she looks so grown up in these pictures. : /
