Baking Day Fun- What I Accomplished

Today was a great day although I forgot about an oil change and hair appointment at 2 different points of the day that took me away from home for a bit.  Combine those with breakfast, lunch, dinner for the family, and the fact that I ran out of flour- (what a HUGE oversight on my part!) my freezer baking day sort of went down the drain :)  

On a happy note, the calzones turned out delicious!  Next time I might add a little more sauce and cheese than I did on these.  Here are some step-by-step pics for a great freezer dinner on a night you don't want to cook! (the link to the recipe is below)
Next cover with the (thinly) rolled pizza dough.
Press in between with your fingers to help give a temporary seal, cut them apart with a sharp knife, press with a fork and trim edges.
Freeze on a baking sheet and then transfer to freezer bag!

Here is the final list of what I accomplished today- definitely pushing to finish the rest tomorrow while the kids are in school from 9am-1pm!
  • Pancake, Waffle and Cornbread Mixes
  • Pumpkin Bread- slice and freeze
  • 60 Flour Tortillas (these are amaaaazing!  I use oil instead of shortening and added a little baking powder)
  • 25 Corn Tortillas
  • 25 Bagels
  • Pizza Dough
  • Pita Bread
  • BBQ Chicken Calzones- I don't have any bacon, so won't be adding that
  • ChiliThis is an AWESOME recipe! 
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Chicken Tetrazzini
  • Baked Ziti (for meals for new moms)


  1. good job girl!!!!
    i need to start doing this! I was so glad that I made way more taco chili for superbowl Sunday than I needed cause I froze the half we didn't eat and tonight when I didn't want to cook I just whipped up some cornbread and grabbed the chili out of the freezer!

  2. Those calzones look great! Those will be so nice for when you don't feel like cooking and you want something frozen you can whip out. Julie
