So i have a huge cooking session on Sunday and got my freezer full.

I still wanted to do taquitos, breakfast burritos, and pumpkin bread/muffins.

I may try and rearrange the freezing unit on my refrigerator but i haven't decided

anyways here is a pic of it

selena, want to come to my house?

I love to bake and cook, especially this time of year when it is getting colder. I just don't have the energy. I made apple muffins and lasagna so far. I hope I can rally at some point and make some more.

Does anyone know if potato leek soup is good to freeze? I think I am going to make it today and wondering if I should try freezing it.

Oh, I'm so jealous...I haven't even started! Maybe Friday night and Saturday I'll get to it since DS is spending the night with the grandparents

I'm pretty sure most soups are good to freeze. I think potato leek soup would do fine.

Selena, your freezer is looking awesome! I can't wait til we have a house and room for a chest freezer.

I haven't started cooking & freezing yet as I feel it's too early, especially given that I only have the one freezer in my kitchen. I can't wait to start though...it's going to feel great to have a stash of food tucked away, like a little squirrelio.

while pg the first time i froze potato soup, the results were awful. I know alot of people have a hard time freezing potatoes so i just avoid them altogether. There are a few threads in health and nurtion about feeding your freezer, those ladies might be able to help you with the potatoes.

also there is a yahoo group freezer assets or frozen assets, that is quite helpful in finding good freezer recipes.

I was going to say I think so if there is enough fat in the soup, like cream or cheese.

but you can buy really tasty tator tots or fries from the freezer section, so it is possible to get tasty freezer results?
I still think it is the fats that is key, so be sure that the potatoes are already imbued with flavor prior to freezing and have enough fats to gets a good emulsion prior to freezing.

I really need to start working on freezing meals.. I just need to get motivated.

Im pretty sure you can freeze potatos (they sale frozen potatos, mashed potatos etc over here) but from what Ive been told its hard to get good results.
