  1. Rhonda,
    Your menu sounds yummy as usual! I'm curious as to what is in the ziploc freezer containers, that looks good too. :)

  2. Hi Lyn, it is always nice to hear from you!

    In the plastic containers
    on the top, one is homemade enchilada sauce and other one is sliced ham for sandwiches.

    The 4 all the same size are sliced, smoked pork loin. Jeff has a big smoker in the backyard and when porkloins go on sale, he will smoke 40 or so pounds. Then he slices them and we freeze them in meal size portions. I think they are the ultimate in fast food for a quick meal at home.

    The round pink container is pink lemonade, we have a Pampered Chef ice shaver from a garage sale and we can make slushies at home.

  3. I know you haven't been home full time for long but all that you do is inspirational to me. I haven't had the energy to do as much as I would like to lately but I really enjoy reading about your accomplishments.

    I still remember your post on the freezer sausage and biscuit breakfast sandwiches and I remember drooling over those. :) Your freezer looks well-fed!
