Oh yeah, after years of freezerless living, my 7 cu ft chest freezer is being delivered Wednesday! Please give me ideas for filling that sucker. I also have a bushel of apples and eight zillion mini pie plates, and would like to put in a Strategic Pie Reserve for impromptu gifts and gluttony. Should I freeze the pies pre- or post-baking?
Things I already make and will freeze:
-cookies for unexpected cookie-related emergencies
-yummy, yummy leftovers
-chicken, beef, and veggie stock
-bread dough (although dough freezing-related tips much appreciated)
-partially pre-baked pizza crusts
-homemade Chinese dumplings
I'm going through all the freezer threads but hey, there's always room for one more. Thanks for your suggestions!
