No sewing going on here - just cooking, cooking, cooking....

Yep - nothing but cooking.

Our freezer is dying.  We inherited it from my husband's father last year when he died.  We really didn't realize how old it was until we starting adding the years together while on the way to buy a new one - it was almost 20 years old!

Anyway - I caught it tonight, as I went to get tortillas out for dinner tonight (bean burritos).  2/3 of my freezer was thawed!  UGH!!!

Needless to say, with the help of 4 ice chests, very nice neighbors, and a little re-arranging of my 2nd freezer (hey, with 6 kids, what do you expect - this one is full of veggies, cheese, and pork), we were able to store most things.

Tonight, we went and bought a new freezer - from Lowe's!  They offer free next day delivery with hauling away of the old freezer, plus they gave us a 10% discount on the price of the freezer because my husband was in his military uniform (he was coming home from work and didn't change so we could go and buy the freezer right then)!

The new freezer will be here tomorrow morning - and ready to add food hopefully by late tomorrow night - or Monday morning.

Tonight we cooked:
8 lbs of ground beef
12 chicken breasts
1 whole chicken
2 pizzas
4 stuffed baked potatoes
8 pork chops
2 steaks
2 hamburgers

and the ham is still in the roaster - it was only partially thawed - so it will be there through the night cooking.

They did eat the pizzas - and 1 of the steaks!

Tune into tomorrow for what we cook on Sunday!
