Crazy Cooking Day!!

Last weekend I spent 8 hours cooking.  Yes, 8 hours.  We still have a ridiculous amount of food to go through, so I suppose it was a smart move.
With me working now, meal times have been interesting to say the least.  I decided to make a whole ton of food to make it easier on all of us come mealtime.  So far it was a huge success.

Here what happened:



Apple Pie Pork Chops

Apple Pecan Toffee Bars

Brown Bag Burritos

Freezer Mashed Potatoes
Baked Chicken Ziti and Spaghetti with Meat Balls

I modified the Ziti by using Fusilli and cheddar cheese

It looks like I lost some pictures, but I did do the meatballs and the sauce as well.  I used jarred sauce for the Zit/Fusilli but spent some time making the sauce for the meatballs.

Camarones con Arroz

I had intended to make some English Muffins and a Broccoli, Chicken and Cheese Casserole, but time got away from me and by the time I stopped I was too beat to even look at any more food!!

This is how I started:
And this is how I ended:

Fuzzy pictures are taken by my tiny friend and sous chef!!

Like I said, we still have ALOT of food to get through, but all in all it has proved to be a delicious idea!
I must also add that this is the first time that I have added not only onions but bell peppers to almost all of the dishes...and I haven't minded yet!!
