What‘s New This Month?

On the home front: This month we are moving and renovating the new place at the same time. Plus hubby is training for a new job and just so happens to be quite sick. So far I'm not sick and I'm trying to stay healthy so eating well and drinking lots of water is my highest priority.

On www.FavoriteFreezerFoods.com: I finished Nanowrimo or National Novel Writing Month where participates pen 1,667 words a day every day to write 50,000 words in a month. So I have tons of stuff to edit and share with you this month.

Ask Your Freezer Cooking Questions

There is a new section of the site for you to ask your freezer cooking questions now. If your wondering how to adapt a recipe to the freezer, what does and doesn't freeze, how to thaw something, what freezer containers to use or if the food in your partly defrosted freezer is still safe to eat than ask away.

Surviving Flu Season

When I'm feeling under the weather I like to curl on the couch with lots of pillows and blankets, drink warm tea with honey and eat chicken noodle soup.

The last thing I want to do is make homemade noodles or chicken broth and I sure as heck don't want to eat out at a restaurant, drive around town to pick up dinner or go grocery shopping.

So having homemade soup in the freezer can really be a sanity saver. Warm soups are the ultimate comfort food when you're sick. They go down easy, warm you up and homemade broth gives you the nurishment of all the veggies and meat cooked in the pot.

So if you don't have any broth or soup in your freezer you might want to work on that. You did save your turkey carcass from Thanksgiving right? You can use it to make broth the same as chicken broth.

Since we are trying to get through flu season go light on the herbs, stick with the bones, onions, carrots, celery and some salt and pepper. Cover it all with cold water and bring it to a boil then turn it down to a simmer and leave it at least three hours.

If you want a stronger flavor after that strain the broth and put it back on the heat leaving the lid off so the water can evaporate thus concentrating the flavor.

Now you can freeze the broth, or learn how to freeze your favorite soup recipes.

Still have leftover turkey meat? Try some Creamy Turkey Wild Rice Soup.

Come join me on Facebook. You’ll get a sneak peak of what I’m preparing for the site and links to recipes from other bloggers I’ve seen on the web and loved along with tips on how to freeze, thaw and cook them.
