More 13 Favorite Things To Have In My Freezer

List #1 can be found here. As I was typing up last week's list, I realized that there were so many things I love to have on hand in my freezer that I couldn't narrow it down to just one post. So, here is part 2.

Random Things:
  1. Old bread, heels and crusts. For making bread crumbs or croutons.
  2. Homemade spaghetti sauce.
  3. Pesto ice-cubes.
  4. Pierogi.
  5. Sloppy Joe meat.
  6. Bags of shredded cheese. (If I don't freeze some, it will be eaten too quickly!)
  7. Frozen veggies, whether from the freezer department at the grocery store or veggie side dishes I make.
  8. Chicken stock.
  9. Veggie peels and scraps that I use for making stock.
  10. Shredded chicken to use in casseroles.
  11. Cookie dough. I usually roll it into balls before freezing so that I can pull out only a dozen or so at a time to bake.
  12. Breads. I'm not particular either - quick breads, yeast breads...it doesn't matter as long as it fits in there somehow.
  13. Ice cream. Because honestly, what freezer would be complete without it?

I have never had good success with frozen shredded cheese.

Ice cream is a must and its gotta be moose tracks! Oh I keep vanilla in the house too for making homemade chocolate shakes. :)

I have about 9 out of the 13....that isn't bad. The rest I bypass since with so many kids we go through things like cheese fast enough (or maybe that is the point of freezing it. ) :)

I always freeze my cookie dough in balls so that I can pull out and bake just a dozen or half dozen at a time as well. . . =)
